Abstract

Docudrama justifies its arguments by establishing connections between actuality and filmic re-creation. Three basic means of relating data and claims--models, sequences, and interactions--encourage such connections between document and drama, the known and the speculative. Twentieth Century-Fox's cycle of postwar semidocumentaries provides a precedent for persuasive strategies characteristic of today's film and television docudramas.
