The Bayeux Tapestry is almost 945 years as it was said that it was created in the year 1077 after the Duke of Normandy who is known as William the Conquerer had successfully invaded and conquered England in the year 1066. Image source: Wikipedia.

If you are looking for World War 2 movies for your collection, I strongly recommend these (in no particular order):-
