16 Films Co-Starring Alabama

"No self-respecting Southerner uses instant grits." 
My Cousin Vinny, 1992

This month's blog contribution is dedicated to two things that I personally love: Alabama football and movies. I was wondering how I could combine these two favorite things into one post and then it hit me. In honor of the University of Alabama winning its 16th National Football Championship title, the most national championships won by any other team in college football history, I have decided to list 16 movies that were either filmed in Alabama, reference Alabama, relate to Alabama, or has a plot set in Alabama. Now granted, most of these titles are oldies but they are goodies. All of the movies are available in the Public Libraries in Jefferson County and may be checked out for seven days.
