If you're looking for more, The Americanization of Emily is a contender. Yankee Doodle Dandy covers a longer period, but its wraparound is set during WW II, and crafted for inspiration at that time.

You listed "The Pianist" twice. Also, "Band of Brothers" isn't a movie.

Flevel, could you ask your question to the description in your list?

Otherwise, if this goes live people won't know what they need to answer.

Since there are so many World War 2 movies I don't think you need to include TV series like Band of Brothers and Generation War.

Even if the poll goes live before you add this one, if you'd like to add it (or any other movies up to 35), you can always do so with a re-push request here: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faq-poll-authors-re-push-requests

It's a very easy thing to do, actually. 'Takes just a minute or two.

Hi fleven. Polls are more likely to go live if the author has responded to people's suggestions. You don't necessarily have to agree or implement the suggestions but if you respond, we know that you've seen them and been able to at least consider them. : )
