Reel V. Real
By Frank Sandello ($19.95)
Hollywood has always exercised some degree of artistic license whenever it’s turned its spotlight on things that really happened, ignoring something here, adding something there. In this fascinating, fact-filled rundown, the author examines just how much movie myth deviated from historic fact in 70 movies based on actual events, people and situations, including “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Braveheart,” “Gladiator,” “The Ten Commandments,” “The Perfect Storm,” “Dances With Wolves,” “Titanic” and “Patton.”
