    LBH 143th Anniversary

    As the 143th anniversary of the battle of Little Big Horn approaches and after having read two very good, well researched books on the subject, I often wonder why hasn´t Hollywood came up with a realistic movie on LBH like Saving Private Ryan ?

    I would be terribly leery of such a movie being made today. Hollyweird would try to turn it into a PC epic. Now if we could get Ken Burns to do it...

    Ken Burns is not immune from injecting his own pc biases into his documentaries...but he is better than most. What no one is capable of truly covering is the immense complexity and scope of such subjects. Oftentimes the truth has a lack of drama which must be invented for a movie...or where there is no historical record of personal interactions it has to be invented as well..."dramatic license". Add to that far too many see such film and believe its the actual truth of what happened.

    The recent movie "Dunkirk"...an excellent movie but it focuses on a few very tiny parts of the whole. For someone not into the history of it will have little idea of the scale of the event.

    I guess you are right, not a chance of a faithful rendering of that battle, and this is a pity in spite of several good books written about it.

    If a producer and director made an accurate film or documentary on the LBH fracas based upon solid research and evidence...you could be sure that PC critics would savage it with their reviews.

    I'm a big history buff when it comes to the battle of LBH. I've been there twice and have read several books on the subject. Two books I would highly recommend are; Archaeological Perspectives on the Battle of the Little Bighorn by Scott, Fox Jr, Connor & Harmon; Archaeology, History, and Custer's Last Battle by Richard Allan Fox, Jr. Both of these book give a unique perspective of the battle with forensics that is fascinating reading.
