About this title

· An extensive filmography of all movies featured in the book, plus many more historical films and TV shows, providing basic production and cast information

· A complete index of historical and cinematic terms and concepts, as well as important scholars and filmmaking personnel

Book Description:

The movie JFK was widely praised for its riveting storytelling—and widely dismissed as feverish speculation. Gettysburg won acclaim for authentic battlefield reenactments—and little else. Filmmakers have always sought to mold historic events into compelling viewing, and many balance history and drama admirably. The best of their films offer a compelling visual presentation of history that no book can match. But sloppiness, indifference, or personal agendas can easily lead to bad films or, more important, bad history.
