Again in descending order:

Any movie about Einstein in America!

Americans of German descent include Oscar Hammerstein II &
Eisenhower.

Some Germans directed typical American fare:
Wolfgang Petersen's "Air Force One" (1997)
Roland Emmerich's "Independence day" (1996)

Germans who became Americans and made great American-themed
movies:
Fritz Lang's "Fury" (1936)
Marlene Dietrich in "Destry rides again" (1939)

Also
Max Reinhardt's "Midsummer night's dream" (1935)
Ernst Lubitsch's "Trouble in paradise" (1932)

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
