Youtube Movie Find: Ragtime 1981--E.L.Doctorow

I love old movies. And I love how you can sometimes find old movies uploaded to Youtube. Newer ones are pay but a lot of the older ones are available free. We've enjoyed Alfred Hitchcock, Sherlock Holmes, gangster flicks, westerns and other old favorites. Yesterday, our Youtube old movie find was "Ragtime" (1981). This is a Milos Foreman Jazz Age film based on the eponymous 1975 book by E.L.Doctorow. I read this book about the same time the movie came out, but never saw the film. With a few parts deleted for nudity, it would make a great film for 20th Century U.S. History classes.Youtube Movie Find: Ragtime 1981--E.L.Doctorow
