One of my favorite movies, and this is just one of the many fantastic scenes in it. Every year, I play the opening scene from this movie in my first Property class:

"Pa, the guns... they're getting closer."
"Are they on our land?"
"No, sir."
"Then it ain't our concern, is it?"

What a great scene that captures the meaning of property in the American mind!
