GUEST,Chicken Charlie BS: Ten films that got it wrong (240* d) RE: BS: Ten films that got it wrong 29 Mar 08

Maybe Bobby Darin shouldn't have played Bobby Darin. :)
Just a thought.

I see we have basically drifted from criticizing movies to criticizing actors, which I don't have a problem with--some people even get paid for doing that.

The distortion of history in "Untouchables" --viz., the "where's Nitti?" "He's in the car" thing is absolutely overwhelming to me.

"Wyatt Earp" is, as far as I know, more historically accurate than "Tombstone," but Kilmer is the only "Doc" who so far has been allowed to say the line actually attributed to D.H. when the Earps told him he didn't have to go to the Corral, i.e., "That's a helluva thing to say to me."


PS. I have absolutely no idea why or if ANY of this is significant! :)
