This paper analyzes what makes a quality historical movie. The analysis focuses on authenticity and accuracy, and the paper includes why it is difficult to render historical authenticity and accuracy in the case of particular personages and/or events.

From the Paper:

"The production of historical film requires a number of considerations in order to be considered a great historical film with respect to accuracy. From authenticity to avoiding inventions added for their own sake, producing a great historical film requires more than producing a merely successful narrative film. Films like "The Birth of a Nation" and "Gone with the Wind" may be considered great films about the Civil War but they are prevented from being considered great historical films because they are not historically accurate."
