CODY4U saidNot really a fan of the half fact-based/half fictional accounts of actual events. It's kind of weird watching something that's been hyped as being based on a true story, and then you later read most of what you saw was totally made up. Kinda deceitful.
Jack Dawson & Rose DeWitt Bukater. There were no such people aboard Titanic until the writer, James Cameron, added them into the story board & film, its really quite common in "true story" film making
There were many "real life stars" on board Titanic but in the highest grossing movies of all time, top billing went to a fictional couple. Why was no one outraged at this?
Are you familiar with the word whitewashing? That's the main reason why people are pissed about Stonewall. As for Titanic, there were no heroes among the real life stars. Compared to the Stonewall event where critics are arguing that the person who threw the 1st brick is the person that should receive credit and recognition.
Excuse me, but "Molly" became a hero of such, among the socialites, she was the only one who was willing to go back and save lives, any lives. 1st, 2nd, 3rd class passengers, she didn't care! Imagine if her family or other socialite friends were to bitch about fictional people getting top billing in the highest grossing movie of all time
Margaret Brown was honored anyway without director James Cameron:A 1960 Broadway musical based on her life was produced, along with a 1964 film adaptation of the musical. Both were titled The Unsinkable Molly Brown
I think Marsha P. Johnson should also be honored, without director Roland Emerich:
Oh, but wait a minute, there is already one, Pay It No Mind - The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjN9W2KstqE
Margaret Brown (née Tobin) (July 18, 1867 – October 26, 1932) was an American socialite, philanthropist, and activist who became famous because of her survival of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic, after exhorting the crew of Lifeboat No. 6 to return to look for survivors. It is unclear whether any survivors were found after Lifeboat No. 6 returned to search. She became known after her death as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown", although during her life, her friends called her "Maggie". A 1960 Broadway musical based on her life was produced, along with a 1964 film adaptation of the musical. Both were titled The Unsinkable Molly Brown
