The Password Is Courage (1962)
The Password Is Courage
First of all this film is based on Charlie Cowards Biography so a lot of it is quite correct,but like all films artistic licence has crept in for the sake of continuity,all in all the film is entertaining,now lets look at when it was made.The Early 60s, when a lot of memories from World War 2 were still fresh in peoples minds so a lot what was in Charlie Cowards book would have had the red pencil put through it as unsuitable.
Lastly not only was Charlie Coward a Technical Adviser on this film he also appeared in it as an ordinary British Soldier in the scene where they are having a party after he is released from solitary confinement
The Civil War (1990)
The Civil War
As an Englishman with a Black American Grandfather this Series caught my imagination to the extent of becoming a civil war buff,To this day I am still reading up on Civil War history,but the biggest surprise was to learn that there were Black Troops in The Confederate Army,I pointed this out to a friend of mine who did not believe it until i showed it to him in writing,I only hope that more programmes of this sort can be shown in the future.
Recently I watched North and South,this was my second time around and it became more and more engroseing.I cant comment on the accuracy of the uniforms as it don't have the knowledge but i did give more insight into the Civil War,
If I have any inaccuracies please feel free to put me right.
