    totally understand where you are coming from, but you may be better off sticking with Biography's...most movies will add "artistic" development...LOL.

    I know. A lot of films try to keep things historically accurate though. Lol.

    LOL, but they always add something...always. That's why I always check out a site that shows the fact from added fiction...

    Lol. I know. I often pick apart the fact from the fiction when watching these films.

    Me too. I work with historians though so some of their traits rubbed off on me. We enjoy discussing the historical inaccuracies in film & our favourite history programmes & famous historians as well as our favourite eras or genres of history & reasons why when we're not busy working, that is.

    funny, we also do that as well...it makes the movie fun! although sometimes it's disappointing when the fiction is not fact.

    It does make it fun & is disappointing when some of the fictional parts aren't fact. As a creative person I also like to do what the script-writer's do & make nice, little stories about what I want to happen but know wasn't true but nothing too far from the truth sometimes.

    My favourite historical film is "Titanic" mainly because of the song. I love Celine Dion. (They just added a romance to the tragic story of the "Unsinkable" ship sinking.)

    I think it would be best if they didn't start it with what they found "The Heart of the Ocean" & getting the old lady remembering what happened & telling the story. I think if they gave a true "Titanic" character (I'm thinking of "The Unsinkable Molly Brown") the chance to tell her story which was a "from rags to riches", "new money" story.

    Seabiscuit (2003)

    Narrator: “The first time he saw Seabiscuit, the colt was walking through the fog at five in the morning. Smith would say later that the horse looked right through him. As if to say, "What the hell are you looking at? Who do you think you are?" He was a small horse, barely fifteen hands. He was hurting too. There was a limp in his walk, a wheezing when he breathed. Smith didn't pay attention to that. He was looking the horse in the eye.“

    If you get to watch it, I'd love to hear what you think of it.
    I'd never ever heard of the film before stumbling across it....

    Ol' Blue Eyes in Pal Joey. I was surprised at how much I liked this old movie.

    It really is an amazing film on so many levels. Brilliant story and very underrated. A true gem - it’s been a while since I last saw it as well. It will be in my rewatchables for sure.
