Godzilla (1954)
Godzilla is the longest running franchise in movie history. As Yoda might say, the reboots are strong with this one.

1954 must have been Japan's 1939, the greatest movie year in the United States. We watched Seven Samurai, but the year also boasts Samurai 1: Musashi Miyamoto which won a special Academy Award for best foreign film and Sansho the Bailiff, an amazing film.

Godzilla is probably a psychological response to the atomic bombs being dropped as well as the fear of nuclear proliferation that was very scary and very real in the 1950's. Who knows what monsters will be revealed?

1. Portraying George Washington is important to the contestants because so that they remember

2. Leutze painted "Washington Crossing the Delaware" because He was the first one to cross blindfolded.

3. Three historical inaccuracies in the painting are The black person the flag and the the women.

4. Yes, art should be historically accurate because if some people that don't know about and want to learn about or have to learn about it they probably want the right information .
