Fact, Fiction, Film.

This morning’s New York Times has a good summary of what you already know about fact and fiction in Hollywood’s latest historical dramas. I enjoy well-made art and literature.  I also have an abiding interest in history, and whenever I watch an historical drama, I rush to my nearest interent connection to look up “what really happened”.   (Years ago, that sentence would have read: “I rush to my Encyclopedia Britannica…”)
