Channel awards pics that help public's view of history

NEW YORK — The History Channel has nominated five 2001 theatrical movies for its fourth annual Harry Award: “A Beautiful Mind,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin,” “Enemy at the Gates” and “Pearl Harbor.”

The movies that made History’s final cut are the ones that “contributed the most to the public’s understanding and appreciation of history.” The Harry gets its name from the first great writer of historical works, Herodotus, who lived in Athens in fifth century B.C.

The winner will be named during a primetime special March 23, hosted by Josh Binswanger, who anchors the series “This Week in History.”

The criteria for the prize are realism, historical accuracy, the opinions of professional and amateur critics, educational value and aud response.

Previous winners include “Saving Private Ryan” and “Ride With the Devil.”
