  1. Thank you very much for posting this! I write historical fiction, and this is the kind of thing I like to mark for future reference.

    • And the correct historical details are important for those who know! There are egregious historical errors in films and books that distract from an otherwise enjoyable story!

  2. Thanks, this is invaluable! I always used to howl at those 1950s westerns with the virtuous lady travelers in bullet pointed corsets and June Allyson bangs…
