  1. The 1951 “Red Badge of Courage,” but “Ride with the Devil,” is a close second.

  2. Lincoln is now my favorite, but it’s not so much a war movie as it is a movie about a guy during wartime.

    When I was a kid, “The Blue & The Gray” made a huge impression on me. Watching it now, I see how quaintly melodramatic it was (although not so melodramatic as “North & South), and it has virtually every single Civil War trope in it you can imagine. But still, it was good entertainment!
