    Title: HHH Quo Vadis with the Partial Historians
     
    Description: Drs and Radford and Greenfield of the Partial Historians podcast love movies. When we talked about having a collaboration episode for my other podcast, The History of the Papacy, they suggested the 1951 drama Quo Vadis. This is a spectacular movie and kicked off a whole genre a over the top epics. Will Hollywood hate or love history today?

    Hollywood Hates History: The Alamo 1994

    Title: Hollywood Hates History: The Alamo 1994
     
    Description:  Today, I mount a brave defense of a lone outpost of the movie podcast internet. I will make my stand to defend the Alamo from 2004. The battle of the Alamo was one of the most iconic battles in American and possibly world history. Everyone loves a story of underdogs who fight to the end despite overwhelming odds, but does this movie do the story justice? You will be the judge!

    Hollywood Hates History: Conqueror (1956)

    Hollywood Hates History: Conqueror (1956)

    Hollywood Hates History: Conqueror (1956)
     
    Description:  The next few movies Scott and I will talk about have at least one common theme, they all involve John Wayne in one way or another. John Wayne either really loved history or truly hated it and wanted to punish it. Whatever John Wayne felt, he had a talent for turning any era of history into a great Western. Today Scott and I (and of course you) have to decide whether John Wayne respected the tradition of Genghis Khan or if he shot it full of flaming fire arrows. Today, Scott is going to defend the 1956 classic: The Conqueror starring John Wayne.

    Hollywood Hates History: The Scarlet Letter (1995)

    Hollywood Hates History: The Scarlet Letter (1995)

    Title: Hollywood Hates History: The Scarlet Letter (1995)


    Description:  Every so often, Hollywood gets a movie based on a historical event and piece of literature absolutely perfect. The producers really get the tone and big ideas of a novel and the historical events the novel depicted. It is a tough job. I wish we had a movie like that today, but we 100 percent don’t. The Scarlet Letter from 1995 stars Demi Moore and Gary Oldman and tries to bring the seminal American novel “The Scarlet Letter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne to the silver screen. Let’s see if Hollywood Hates History today.

    Hollywood Hates History: Dracula Untold

    Hollywood Hates History: Dracula Untold

    Title: Hollywood Hates History: Dracula Untold
     
    Description: Today we have a surprising episode of Hollywood Hates History. Scott Rank decided to defend Dracula Untold from 2014. I thought this would be a slam dunk to go up against. I was wrong. There is quite a bit of history in this movie. The film makers got things right in this movie that one would never think they would get right. Listen to find out if Dracula Untold is a great piece of historical fiction or just another vampire movie waiting for the stake!
