I’ve long been fascinated by Manfred von Richthofen. Matt Costello and I even wrote a screenplay about him.  But I watched The Red Baron with dismay. The inaccuracies and anachronisms start with the opening scene and continue through the film. A complete disregard for the man’s character and The Flying Circus – the fighting unit he commanded. He was a born hunter and here he’s a fop. The planes and the aerial combat scenes are gorgeous, however. See this for the planes. Ignore the story.
