Quentin Tarantino's World War II epic takes some big swings in terms of history leading to fans wondering about the Inglourious Basterds true story and if anything in the movie is real. A fascinating, fictional assassination of Adolf Hitler, the 2009 film is one of Tarantino's most successful. Produced for $70 million, the 2009 film earned over $321 million (via Box Office Mojo) and received eight Academy Award nominations, with Christoph Waltz winning Best Supporting Actor. Indeed, Inglourious Basterds is a big aspect of the so-called Tarantino Effect on Hollywood in the 21st century. Despite the prestige, the Inglourious Basterds true story isn't quite as true as the movie would have audiences believe.
