HISTPRESS, a site devoted to employment in public history and historical preservation, lists the “top five preservation movies” of all time.
They are, in reverse order:
4. Hot Fuzz
3. Sister Act 2
2. Two Week’s Notice
1. Be Kind Rewind
Go here to read the rationale for each movie and watch clips.
I must admit that I have not seen any of these movies, but I am intrigued by such a list. Can anyone think of other movies that belong on this rather odd list?
Hi John! Thanks for re-posting the HISTPRES Top Five Preservation Movies. We have a very long list, and we certainly take suggestions for the next installment. Also, HISTPRES has a Book Review post semi-monthly and we'll have to look into “The Way of Improvement Leads Home.” Best, Meagan
