Whose reputation would you like to see readdressed on screen?
@ JemDuducu Edward I after being shown as a pantomime villain in Braveheart

@ TheWildHogg Alexander Graham Bell. In my lifetime he’s gone from hero to zero, but a lot of people still don’t know why
@ ElanorGrimes12 Richard III. Not a hunchback. No evidence he murdered children. Tudor propaganda at work
@ PedroHodges96 Ulysses S Grant. He is often remembered as a corrupt drunkard. I feel his military achievements should be addressed instead of his almost ‘ non existent’ relationship with the bottle
