Of course it is but that's part of the fun. For me at least.

Also, there are many movies that are base on someone's life but add things and distort issues just to make good film. People watch these then think that's what happened.

They forget its just a movie. Not much more than a fantasy. Those who make so called documentaries or biographies are the worst of it.

It's one thing to have Kit Carson use the wrong kind of gun but another to show George Washington with no slaves. Just examples. Not that they have done that.

John Ford fell in love with the Monument Valley area. He then used it for several of his movies. That was just fun. Having a rancher in Texas walk out on his porch to look over the towering monoliths of Utah. Or the same rancher grazing his cattle on the sand . This from the Searchers.

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
