|I still love Glory. I think it's one of the best Civil War movies ever made. One thing that sticks out in my mind, though, is from a review I read on the movie when it came out. The author, who should have stuck to reviewing instead of thinking he knew anything about history, remarked that Matthew Broderick was too young to be playing the colonel of a regiment. If that person had even bothered to investigate before writing, he would have found out that the real Robert G. Shaw at the time he was commanding the 54th Mass. was actually younger than Broderick was when he portrayed Shaw.
