I prefer this poll to go live last, after all the polls of each state went live.
See here which polls are live: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026094278/
I will bump this poll after all the state polls are live.

Suggestions for this poll are welcome!

Description: 
Uncle Sam is the nickname of the United States of America. In 1813, the United States gets its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812. Wilson (1766-1854) stamped the barrels with "U.S." for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as "Uncle Sam's." The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam eventually gained widespread acceptance as the nickname for the U.S. federal government. In the late 1860s and 1870s, political cartoonist Thomas Nast (1840-1902) began popularising the image of Uncle Sam. Nast continued to evolve the image, eventually giving Sam the white beard and stars-and-stripes suit that are associated with the character today (history.co.uk).

European colonization of the Americas began in 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus sailed west to find a new trade route to the Far East but inadvertently landed in what came to be known to Europeans as the "New World" (source: wikipedia.org).

These movies are a good representation of the history, culture, spirit and landscapes of the United States of America. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with the United States of America?

The song was performed by James Cagney in the 1942 film Yankee Doodle Dandy,
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy,
A Yankee Doodle, do or die;
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam,
Born on the Fourth of July.
