One thought on “History by Hollywood”
Thank you Gary; we both agreed that Ron Howard altering/making up elements of Rush was forgiveable as he did it to illustrate a greater truth within the time constraints of a movie. Also with Hidden Figures, compressing a couple of decades into a couple of years worked for the movie without changing the basic facts and events. Cleopatra stayed true to the main path of historical fact but some of the errors were kind of baffling although, as stated, not as bad as Gladiator leaving a completely false impression of the results of Maximus’ one-man rebellion.
