The movie is a near perfect adaptation of the comic book. Unfortunately, the comic book took lots of liberties with the facts.

It was 300 Spartans, but they weren't alone. There were a few thousand other Greek infantry as well. And don't forget the Athenian navy, which trounced the Persian Navy, and kept them from dropping off troops on the infantry's back side.

What made the story really famous was when they finally got flanked, the spartans stayed; to fight to the last man, in hopes of slowing down the persian army by a day or so and give time for the rest of the infantry to escape.

Known as Battle of Thermopylae, modern estimates are 7,000 Greeks vs 100,000 - 300,000 Persians.

Just before being outflanked on last day, most Greeks were sent away leaving 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, 400 Thebans and perhaps a few hundred others.

I'm going to go out on limb here and guess that "300" was the most historically accurate film ever made in the gay porn genre.

I think its a true story because I once saw it on the History Channel, way before the movie came.

Um, yes. It was also shown in the film The 300 Spartans, from 1962, long before The History Channel existed. So it must be true.

If only we had some other way to get information about the world before movies, television and comics came along.

I was going to argue, but then I saw you said "film", whereas Spartacus: Blood and Sand was a television series. So I suppose you're right.

Also, let's note that pretty much all information in this thread was present in, or very easily accessible from, the link that Christophe first posted. Except the gay porn stuff, for which we have Greg to thank.
