    The category is movies about film people and filmmaking. TV shows and made-for-cable movies are included. They can be fact-based or fiction. They can be dramas or comedies or musicals or biographies, but no documentaries, please.

    Usual avatar rules apply.

    Roll film . . . aaaaaand . . . ACTION!

    My entry: Sunset Boulevard.

    ^ I thought about using Chaplin, but I didn't want to be repetitive. I also have been using the "GIF of several shots I like" option a few times in the past couple of weeks. Which is basically to say, you hit my taste spot on.

    I know we already had an entry from Ed Wood, but this is one of my all-time favorite rants, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to capture it in avatar form:

    Haha, I figured it was a no-brainer when I saw the theme, and was surprised when it hadn't yet been chosen. :) Though I have to say, I love Chaplin too, so you'll be getting my vote :)
