It wouldn't be quite right to call Hemingway & Gellhorn, the magnificent 2 ½ hour bio epic by Philip Kaufman (HBO, Monday at 9 p.m.) "the kind of movie Hollywood doesn't make any more." In truth, Hollywood has never been particularly interested in the lives of writers nor faithful to their work when adapting it for the big screen. (A running gag in Hemingway & Gellhorn is the bad casting of Helen Hayes in the 1932 version of A Farewell to Arms.)
