Rich and the movies: Knowing movie history (with an added note)

By Ohio.com Published: May 30, 2014

This week, Beacon Journal pop culture writer Rich Heldenfels has been wondering lately if movies should come with an entrance exam. Just how much do you need to know about a movie before seeing it?

(Rich here. After I did this video, I thought about a related point: How much historical background should you have on a topic before seeing a movie about it? For example, what should you have known about "42" or "The Monuments Men"? Or are those cases requiring post-moviegoing homework -- you see the movie, take its story in and then see what the facts are?
