I am going to soon be launching into MoN.  I thought that it would be nice to send out a list of period and location oriented movies to help set the mood and inspire play.  Any suggestions?

The most obvious of recent movies is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It is set in 1926 NYC. It communicates the visuals of the time period very well.

I will be starting Masks soon and was wondering about giving my players some period/location movies to watch to get into the spirit. Any suggestions?

Just a reminder that the Empire State Building depicted in King Kong does not even exist in Jan/Feb of 1925 (construction on the Empire Sate Building began in Jan 1930)  So King Kong, which is a view of 1933 NYC is a little out of the historical time period of MoN.  

Working horses pulling any sort of freight, in particular, had largely vanished by 1933 in NYC but were still present in some areas in 1925.
