Q: Percy Smith was a pioneer of natural history filmmaking, creating movies that would prove the antecedents of THE David Attenborough documentaries so beloved today.

Why there is a “the” before a person‘s name?Is “the David Attenborough’s documentaries” correct?

Thanks for your help!
A: Yes, the first usage is correct. Think of “David Attenborough documentaries” as a specific style of documentary.

Percy Smith was a pioneer of natural history filmmaking, creating movies that would prove the antecedents of the (plummy British voice-over documentaries) so beloved today.

Both examples simply add words that explain what kind of documentaries are being referred to.
Q: i'm watching Percy Jackson 聼起來自然嗎?
A: "I am watching Percy Jackson" would sound a bit more natural, but it is still very good!
Q: Percy pulled on the rope, but nothing happened. He pulled again.

What's the difference between "pulled on" and "pull".
Why is it "on" but not "up".
I imagine "up" of "pick up".
why does "pull up" sound strange?
A: If Percy pulls the rope we think it moves.

If Percy pulls up the rope it definitely goes up.

If Percy pulls on the rope there is the possibility it doesn't move.

"Pull up" is OK. "Percy pulled up the rope" would be OK but it means the rope went up.
