A Case for the Classics: Stagecoach


To pinpoint the moment at which the American 18th century western frontier began to be mythologized is impossible.

A Balancing Act: The Post Handles Themes Masterfully


The Post perfectly captures elements of America’s turbulent 1970s, including female leadership, the end years of the buddy-buddy relationship between the press and Washington, and the Nixon White House.

Something about the frilly dress shirts and the bullheaded men who fought for liberty, justice, and independence interests me endlessly. In recent years, though historical dramas have been on the rise, the Founding Fathers have not received very much attention. In a search…
