What did the writer say and what do you think? (1-3)
1.) No, I do not think any of Fulford’s examples of Movie Wisdom strikes me as inaccurate.

He includes an anecdote, in an essay that shows how movies get it wrong, because he wants to tell the readers that people believe what they see and hear. Its just like how Pauline Kael said that the behavior of boys were transformed by the performances of Cary Grant. 3.) Fulford says he relies on Movie Wisdom, even though there is evidence against it, because it has tradition behind it. This means that he believes that Movie Wisdom doesn’t cut out the key points in movies, just like in the traditional western movies, where Elmore Leonard omitted the one-on-one main-street pistol duals.
