Ideally, everything would be historically accurate. But then again, ''Feud: Capote vs. the Swans'' isn't a documentary. It's an eight-part series based on the best seller ''Capote's Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal and a Swan Song for an Era,'' by Laurence Leamer. As adapted by Jon Robin Baitz. Artistic license is often taken in translating and interpreting real-life stories like this. For example, fictionalizing public conversations between Woodward and Capote. As for any anachronisms, I suppose only Baitz can specify whether those were lapses of carelessness or intentional choices.

That said, I wish Baitz would come back and write for the theater. I especially enjoyed his early plays: ''The Film Society'' and ''The Substance of Fire.''
