Based on a True Story

by Thomas Brady


Sometimes that’s a really great tag line for a movie. Take a movie like The Men Who Stare At Goats. A huge part of the fun of the movie for me was wondering whether it was really based on a true story, let alone how much actual truth there may be in that “story.”

If that’s the fun for you, too, stop reading this article.

Sometimes it’s still fun, perhaps even more, to find out the story is true. That’s the case, apparently, with TMWSAG. Check out this Boing Boing article on John Alexander - the inspiration for Clooney’s character.
