Re: Historical Accuracy

Poster: jsrechts@imap.unc.edu

As a rule, it is a bad idea assume that filmmakers and television get
history right.
Like the playrights before them (Shakespeare for example), TV and movie
writers and directors are looking for
dramatic effect, what will make the audience happy, and then stamping it
their own interpretations, not historical facts.
