Born on the Fourth of July

Series Site

"Since the dawn of the blockbuster era in the 1970s, when movies like Jaws and Star Wars dominated theaters throughout the summer, July Fourth weekend has become a crucial launching pad for aspiring blockbusters. Originally released over July Fourth weekend, these five films show that Hollywood likes to celebrate our nation's independence with a dash of adventure, a dose of sex, and a dollop of apocalyptic paranoia." —Museum of the Moving Image
