History Meets the Movies - Dances with Wolves - Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 2:30PM
Since the creation of celluloid and the development of Hollywood, movies have relied on history as inspiration for stories. Let's see how "right" Hollywood got it...
An epic western directed, produced by, and starring Kevin Costner, it is an adaptation of a book by Michael Blake. It is the story of Lt. John Dunbar who travels to the American frontier to settle a military post, and his relationship with a group of Lakota Indians. The winner of seven Academy Awards and great critical acclaim, it made more than $424 million worldwide. Is it Hollywood-hype or history?
