Resumo: Three hundred and fifty years after his death Oliver Cromwell remains a highly polemical historical figure producing contradictory assessments of his deeds and beliefs. Cinema is a powerful medium which has developed a controversial relationship with history, especially with the criterion of historical accuracy. It is no wonder that, from the outset, a biopic of Cromwell would give rise to disparate judgements, but the film Cromwell, directed by Ken Hughes and released in 1970, is particularly striking on account of its numerous errors and conscious distortions which this paper aims to analyse. Hughes’s portrayal of Cromwell as a proto-democrat and champion of the rights of the common people owes more to the director’s hidden agenda than to the amassed historical knowledge of the real Oliver Cromwell.
