    Ron Maxwell wasn't done with the Civil War. The director behind the critically acclaimed epics "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals" revisits the familiar subject of the War Between the States with his new film, "Copperhead," which will host its world premiere at the State Theatre June 28 at 7:30 p.m. I wanted to explore something more intimate," Maxwell said of the film. "My previous pictures focused on officers and leaders, but, in reality, the war was fought by teenage boys, most from small towns whose families ended up devastated by the war even if no battles were fought nearby." Copperhead...

    John J. Miller at The Corner asks the question: What are the best conservative movies of the last 25 years? This cinema epoch begins roughly with the release of Red Dawn in 1984. I might be happy if I could find 25 bona-fide conservative movies at all in the past 25 years. Im afraid that most of what Miller will get in response will be of the Red Dawn variety, since the only place safe for conservative themes in Hollywood has been action films. Red Dawn itself had that in spades, but it was also a rather dreadful movie with...

    Nothing has been finalized but Director Ron Maxwell (IMDB resume here) was in the middle of an interview with local host (sometimes national sub) Dan Patrick at KSEV 700AM. Ron was going on about how much of a traitor (my word, not his) Michael Moore was for providing aid and comfort to the terrorists in Iraq. He also talked about how Mr. Moore made no reference to how many people Saddam Hussein was murdering every year. Nor did he mention the children who starved because of corruption in the Oil For Food program (which was pilfered by France and the...

    Promoting a revision of history? 10/19/03By RONALD F. MAXWELL Special to the Register George Ewert, director of the Museum of Mobile, thinks my movie, "Gods and Generals," "seeks to rewrite the history of the American South, downplaying slavery." Moreover, as a self-proclaimed champion of the brave new South, it appears that he would like to run a re-education camp for adults and a brave new school for children so that Alabamians can be taught to hate their past, to reject their ancestors, and to condemn and even to forget their history. Most disturbing, from the point of view of a...

    Frederick Douglass, the great abolitionist, born a slave, once offered a lesson in patriotism. In 1859, he fled for his life, accused erroneously of participating in the raid on Harper's Ferry, along with John Brown. Director-producer-writer Ron Maxwell ("Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals") notes that, in 1860, Douglass spoke in Glasgow, Scotland, where, prior to his address, a radical antislavery leader delivered a scathing attack not just on slavery, but on all things American. Despite his experience of brutality and dehumanization, Douglass, nevertheless, criticized the previous speaker. "He who stands before a British audience to denounce anything peculiarly American in...
