>From DW Griffith's take on American history in Birth of a Nation to
Steven Spielberg's version of a ‘50s con artist in Catch Me If You Can,
Hollywood has searched for "the story" in history, reorganizing the
chronology of events to sell history on the Big Screen. How fictive is
history on the Big Screen?
