    Yes John quite aware of the little untruths i many Historical and Bibical Films,but as you say they must make Movies to Entertain otherwise what a flop the Industry would be.
    But having said that i must say that the Film LOA is still one of the most captivating that i have seen,along with quite a few others as well.

    Nothing will spoil my enjoyment of the Great Movies that have been made ,and i at times get completely lost whilst watching these kind of Movies!
    Thank goodness for many good old Movies,as these days all i see on the Advertising Boards and News Papers is a load of Garbage.

    I have a good selection of good oldies,so as i can sit at Nights with a hot Cuppa ,and really enjoy!

    Oh how i wish that the days of my Youth were still here,i along with my dear departed Brother
    going to the Bioscopes with the nice Big Screens,and watching good Movies in all their glory!
    So many of them too a list of which I am sure you will be well aquainted with.

    Cheers

    Vernon we agree on this one.
    The old movies had style and good stories, now all computerized junk.

    Though there have been some very good one so late and both true.

    'Bohemian Rhapsody'
    'The Green Book'
    'Mary Queen of Scots'

    All true but even with these some poetic license with bits of the stories but all very well produced and acted.
    BR won best film this year and GB had best actor, or maybe other way around?
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    One review:

    Lawrence's triumph — seven Oscars for Picture, Director, Cinematography, Score, Sound, Editing and Art Direction — and its enduring appeal are down to a combination of exhilarating, exotic adventure and an intensely personal, human story. Lawrence's tormented psyche and the political-cultural turmoil of the time and place are picked out against a spectacular, vast and timeless backdrop and absolutely thrilling action artistry. With several rival productions foiled over the years (including a mooted film version of Terence Rattigan's stage play in which Alec Guinness starred), two years of laborious preparation were followed by 14 dust-choked months of location shooting from May of 1961 in Jordan, Spain and Morocco.
