Re: An evolution in creativity, inside the gaps

This is interesting. I think you are dancing on the difference between Jane Austen's novel writing and script writing. I think Andrew Davies, P&P2 (1995) and others, opened the door when he explained why he put in the scenes that she did not.

Still, I believe non-fiction accounts have the duty to more tell over show. After all, some things must Not be left free to interpret, and can be bloody wrong.

Also, a lot of the best movies we have, are tightly coupled to historical accounts. It get even better when historical footage is used, like 30 Seconds over Tokyo and Mirish used some of that for his 1976 Midway. Of course, a lot of research and educated conjecture is used for periods where no film is available, e.g. John Lee Hancock's 2004 The Alamo, which is probably a window of a time machine (except the dismal placing of the chapel about 50 feet too close into the compound).
