Great movies set in the 50's?
I am obsessed with 50's movies. I have seen probably most of them, but I would love some more ideas. They could also be early 60's too(or old). Like, Eddie and the Crusiers. I like the Buddy Holly Story, Labamba, Back to The Future, Peggy Sue Got Married, Grease, Pearl Harbor(older), The Notebook(not 50's, but still old), The Majestic, American Graffiti....Walk the Line(its okay)...
LOVE Rebel without a clause..it's a real 50's movie, and also Mischief.
ohh..Ive seen Pleasentville tons of times..and I like that one too, and The Outsiders...

Pleasantville is cute too. Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire are in modern times, then go back to the 50s.
Also, The Outsiders

The Outsiders is based in the 50's. Its about Greasers, and Soc's. Also Indiana Jones the Kindom of the Crystal skull is set during the 50's as well.

Try "Sweet Dreams" the Patsy Cline story, and "Great Balls of Fire" the Jerry Lee Lewis story.
