Query: Public HIstory course on historic films

I am preparing to teach a public history seminar on memory this summer. I've chosen to approach the topic through the lens of historic films--the idea comes from the Smithsonian's recent History Film Forum (http://historyfilmforum.si.edu/about/). I'm wondering if anyone else has taught a course like this and would be willing to share any syllabi, movie lists, or readings they have used in their class.

Thanks!
