Yes, which is all I was ever saying.>>So, my point stands that they could have used a fictional Steward instead of tarnish the name of a real one.<<
There are a lot of things they could have done
My original point never mentioned, conradicted or took issue with any of that.but the stories which were circulating AT THE TIME, rightly or wrongly, were that an OFFICER had killed himself.
Whether or not any of those stories and accounts were accurate is debatable but that IS the historical context.
That's not what you were saying.And for the umpteenth time, all I ever said was that in my opinion the movie should have used an unnamed officer to present this story instead of potentially falsely tarnishing the name of a good man. Something that, once again, you haven't changed my mind about.
