Anyone know of good War of 1812 movies? Being the 4th of July here in the USA, I just happened to wonder. Thanks.

John Wayne The Kentuckian is of the era. Interesting view of the conflict between Mississippi vs French Emigrees.
Maybe the movie on Tecumpse.
The movie about LaFitte and Jackson with Heston

There's also the 1938 version of "The Buccaneer" with Frederick March as Jean Lafitte.

It also has the Battle of New Orleans.

I've waited most of my life for a movie about the war on the Niagara frontier. I won't live to see such.

By the way, The Kentuckian stars Burt Lancaseter, trying to get from Kentuck to Texas

It was just on TMP a week or so ago,

The John Wayne film is "The Fighting Kentuckian" post war of 1812 story.

You are correct Wayne's was the fighting Kentuckian.

"Master and Commander" technically is. The frigate that is Captain Aubrey's quarry is American in the book, but was changed to French (but built in the US) so as not to offend American sensibilities at the box office
