Vacations in Maine have been a family tradition for...

Most people would not think of going to the movies for a history lesson.

Movies are fun. History is, well, boring, according to too many people.

But once in a while history and cinema can coexist, and we can be both entertained and educated.

Such is the experience movie patrons receive when they see "The Butler."

Although the basic story is fiction, loosely based on an actual black butler who served eight U.S. presidents, the extensive interspersed film clips of...
