Writing about movies -

Hi, my name is Jen.
I need some help with my film history class. I need to choose two films that represent the development of American Film History that were made AT LEAST 50 years apart. My paper needs to use these two films to identify the filmic, gender, racial/ethnic, social/cultural, narrative, and character changes that have occurred in American film during the 50 years between the production of these two films.

I need a suggestion on which two films to use. If you can help me, that would be great. Thanks.

    You might consider "Gone With the Wind" or "Wizard of Oz," both produced in 1939.
