That is because films today are less about history than 1960's films, which would at least make a passing nod to the subject, and usually use the best info they had on costumry.James Adair wrote:I would really hope that the new film..Mary Queen of Scots going into production would mention more of the borders. The 60's version slightly mention it. Your right...a film on the Reivers..fictional or real would be great...Raiding...miss the old days...
Todays films about such subjects are intended to titilate and draw crowds of teenagers to early 20's, who are grossly uneducated regarding history (and other subjects), in comparison to the 1960's audience.
It will probably be, however, the first time we have a titty-shot of Mary, Queen of Scots on film. Given todays younger generations values, it will probably approach for the first time in film or the written romance, the utterly vapid, narcissistic person, of evil inclination she actually was will be portrayed, molded as the heroine she thought she was, so at least history and film will meet on some level.
