: I apologize if you felt that I addressed my "movies are fiction" post towards you personally. I assure you that was never my intention. My post was just my general feelings on the dangers of accepting films as fact.
:But I see a HUGE difference between knowing that there is a chance a massacre might happen and actually conspiring to make it happen which is what LOTM hints at.
No apologies necessary, Tom. We are all just expressing our own feelings here, and one thing we all agree on for sure is how much we like this movie.
I can see what you mean, and you are right that the movie indicates much more culpability than probably existed in actuality. My husband, by the way, loves Montcalm almost more than anyone in the movie, because of his dignity & gentlemanly ways...one of his favorite things is the way Montcalm sweeps off his hat & bows to Munro as the English & colonists surrender the fort.
