“Lawrence of Arabia” and “Kingdom of Heaven” are shown on TV often; “El Cid” never is shown. No bias, of course./s

The evil one has been re-inventing history since the beginning. What’s sad is those that fall for it.
I’m grateful for those who take the time to correct it.

How often has Hollywood followed history? The closest they come is to use an isolated incident to base a screenplay on and expand it to make it entertaining. With all the great stories in history they cant use them?
The problem with this approach is that far too many people watch a movie and think theyre learning history.

The film Kingdom of Heaven shows conflicts between Muslims and Christians in the twelfth century after the Second and before the Third Crusade, and dramatically culminates with the short siege and fall of Jerusalem to the Muslims in 1187. It is an amazing Hollywood version of the period, but it certainly is not factual history.
