Not exactly American history but this year marks the centenary of Jacques Cousteau's birth, and it is being celebrated around the world. No person did more to bring us closer to the sea, from his seminal undersea film The Silent World to his amazing Odyssey that became a major part of American television in the 70s. Wes Anderson paid a fun homage to Cousteau and all things aquatic in The Life Aquatic.
