Subject: RE: Help: Patrick O'Brian's Desolation Island
Yes I know it's only a film but it seems that it's as easy to get things right as it is to get them wrong. I have no problems with Mr Crowe's height or other things mentioned, but it does ruin my enjoyment when things in a historical context are wrong. And the assumption that no one will notice, know or care really bugs me. I usually miss the next couple of line because of my spluttering.

Especially when Patrick O'Brien took such pains to get things right.
