Schindler's List (1993)

Updated February 11, 2017 | Infoplease Staff
Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley and Ralph Fiennes

Undeniably one of the best films of the 1990s. Veering from his trademark high-tech blockbuster, Spielberg directed (and won his first Oscar for the effort) the black-and-white historical epic. Neeson is outstanding as the WWII profiteer who saved thousands of Jews by employing them in his factory and went broke in the process.
