Cast[edit]

I think Donald Sutherland played Nicole Kidman's father. Could someone check that and add him to the cast? Therin83 12:28, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Who was the blond guy, part of the home guard, who Inman fights at the end? --67.172.13.176 (talk) 22:38, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Link to article on 'Battle of the crater' —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.169.67.73 (talk) 22:56, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

SFX[edit]

Since it was strongly asserted in the edit notes that the specific software used to edit the film is especially interesting, I'd like someone to add something to that paragraph that illuminates the special circumstances. Bevo 20:17, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Novelization[edit]

Shouldn't someone make a page about the novel, then keep this one as a disambig page? -Beelzebubs 23:02, 18 May 2004 (UTC)

I agree. First and foremost, Cold Mountain is a novel, and a wonderful, literate one at that. I think this article should focus on the style and sinuous plotlines of Charles Frazier's work, rather than the derivative, simplified screenplay. --TGV 06:17, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Has this not gone anywhere? We definitely need to keep the movie and novel as separate articles, as the novel stood out by itself, winning numerous awards, and having achieved status as a modern masterpiece. --128.103.29.10 02:54, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

That disambiguation should also link to the T'ang era poet, Cold Mountain (Han-Shan) -marudubshinki 06:18 PM Friday, 18 February 2005

I'll do it[edit]

Gimme a little while I'll write a stub article for the novel + a disambig page. --Ben Tibbetts 22:26, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Done[edit]

Skipped on the disambig and rather just created Cold Mountain (novel) - just a stub, but it's a start! Please edit and add what you can to make the article on the modern classic worthy of its subject. --Ben Tibbetts 01:55, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the debate was move. —Nightstallion (?) 07:09, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

  • Cold MountainCold Mountain (film)Rationale: There is absolutely no reason why the article on the film should take the main "Cold Mountain" article. There is also the poet Hanshan. I would like to turn "Cold Mountain" into a dab page to link the novel, movie, and poet onto one single dabpage. Hbdragon88 23:17, 8 May 2006 (UTC) copied from the entry on the WP:RM page

North Carolina statement[edit]

"This caused some controversy in North Carolina, although in fact an estimated 95 percent of feature films and television shows made in the state since the 1980s were set somewhere else."

Can we have a source for this estimate? Seems like it should be the other way around, i.e. 95% of features & TV shows set in the state since the 1980s were made somewhere else. Dforest 23:52, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Legacy?[edit]

isnt the movie a little young to have a legacy section?.

"Retarded"[edit]

I removed a reference to Ruby's supposed mental defect from the plot summary. Neither in the book nor the movie is Ruby portrayed as mentally deficient. She is certainly coarse and lacks the refinement of education but she is not in any way handicapped.

PS: If I messed up editing protocol here, I apologize. I'm not a regular wikipedia user.

Ruby[edit]

Thanks for editing-out Ruby's purportedly being mentally retarded. I noticed this error last night, but you fixed it before I had a chance to. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.172.117.144 (talk) 01:49, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Cold mountain imp.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Cold mountain imp.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Questionable evisceration[edit]

In November 2011, an editor with minimal history eviscerated this page for no good reason. The reason given was, "I made the summary much more brief and removed all the plot spoilers and excessive detail." I intend to restore most of the deleted content over the next few days, absent objection. Spoilers are not an issue if a movie is more than a few months old. Wikipedia articles are meant to be encyclopedic descriptions, not just promotional teasers. Eleuther (talk) 01:11, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Historical Scholarship[edit]

I'm another fan of the movie and book, and I just wanted to point out that several Appalachian Studies scholars gave both favorable reviews for their accurate representations of studies on the subject. So, I thought that in the next few days I'd add a section on what historians thought, but anybody is welcome to help.Silas Robertson (talk) 20:41, 7 May 2013 (UTC)Silas Robertson; May 7, 2013

Hi, Silas! That would be a great addition. There are some article guidelines at WP:FILMHIST that you can check out. Let me know if you'll need any help with setting up referencing! Erik (talk | contribs) 21:16, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Eric. I will definitely need help with referencing, because I'm new to Wikipedia. The articles I'm using are hard copies, but they can be found through JSTOR. Silas Robertson (talk) 22:52, 8 May 2013 (UTC)Silas Robertson, May 8, 2013.
