A podcast series that examines the facts behind the movies that claim to be based on true events
Episode 21: Supplementary 2 The Ones That Got Away. This week Martin flies solo as we examine 11 (12 really!) movies that whilst inspired by true events, didn’t stick close enough to historical facts and characters to meet our criteria for a dedicated episode. Ranging from Gone with the Wind to Apocalypse Now to Cool Runnings via Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Mission, we blast through them fairly quickly before suggesting historical movies that should be made.
