Movies create and set in modern times are fantastic, but there is something about movies set in the past. I know whenever I’m watching a show or movie set in present day, flashbacks to time periods are the best parts.

These movies give us the opportunity to catch a glimpse of times many of us never got to live through. Outfits from the 1800′s are gorgeous to look at. The ways they speak, walk, or even eat in those movies are usually so different from the way we present ourselves these days.

The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies set in the past. One of the best things about it is that it goes from black and white to color. It really shows how marvelous Munchkin Land was. Dorothy’s dream was just gorgeous. Everyone knows the music as well. Some of the songs have remained my favorite my entire life.

Did your favorite movies set in the past make the cut? Which ones were missing that you love?
