Top Ten Movies We’d Like to Screen in US Embassies

Showing the world what America really is

A June 2 LA Times report says that Rep. Diane Watson (D-La La Land) wants to use your tax dollar to rescue America’s image abroad by stocking the libraries of our embassies abroad with movies about the United States and let the local population have access to them.

According to that report, Rep. Watson wants to ship only wholesome movies to our embassies, such as “Lassie Come Home,” “National Velvet” and “Meet Me in St. Louis.” 

Never mind the fact that Watson isn’t explaining how those movies can improve America’s image in, say, China without being dubbed in Chinese.  We at HUMAN EVENTS respectfully disagree with her selection of movies. 

So, here’s the HUMAN EVENTS Top Ten list of movies we’d like to see US embassies screening. If foreign nations thought of us in terms of the characters portrayed in them, the world would be a better place. And we would like them to be dubbed in the language of the host country.  If for no other reason than we’d like to find out who the State Department would hire to dub the voices of John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. 

1. True Grit

2. 1776

3. The Blues Brothers

4. Smokey and the Bandit

5. Dirty Harry (Sudden Impact)

6. How the West was Won

7. Die Hard

8. Rocky

9. The Right Stuff

10. Lonesome Dove
