Here are some movie ideas for June, mostly incorporating Father’s Day and war anniversaries for WW I (sparked by the June assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand) and WW II’s D-Day (June, 1944).
36 Hours (1965) (D-Day)
The Adventures Of Young Indiana Jones: Volume Two: The War Years (TV Series, 1992-93)
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) (This imaginative early twentieth century father telling his children a story is a good choice for Father’s Day.)
Father Of The Bride (1950) (Another Good Father’s Day choice showing life in the ‘50s.)
The Dawn Patrol (1938) (WW I)
The Longest Day (1962) (D-Day: Definitely 14+. Violence aside, younger kids will find it long, and boring in the extreme.)
Passchendaele (2008) (WW I: 14+)
Sergeant York (1941) (WW I)
To Hell & Back (1955) (WW II: 12+)




  1. Don’t know if appropriate for kids, but All Quiet on the Western Front is an excellent WWI film based on a great literary work. Some other WW films older kids should watch are: “Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List,” “To Hell and Back” (tru-ish story about Audie Murphy for WWII), “Sergeant York” (another based on true story film for WWI), and lots of Bing Crosby movies. History isn’t accurate on Bing’s movies, but they are entertaining and show the propaganda value of films during wartime. Oh, yeah.

    I also loved the Young Indiana Jones series. Watched it more than once.

  2. Thanks for the additional suggestions, Marva. All Quiet On the Western Front & Schindler’s List would definitely be 14+ though.
