    Okay, this one is simple. Any biographical movie, TV show or other media about an actor who lived or is still living (as opposed to a fictitious actor).

    One thing's for sure: There's no dearth of possible choices!
    Wiki page: Biographical films about actors

    Usual avatar rules apply: Maximum dimensions 200x200px, maximum file size 1MB. You may enter as many avatars as you wish.

    My entries:

    Carroll Baker as Jean Harlow in Harlow (1965)

    Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest (1981)

    Sorry, I'll have to disqualify that one. Let's try and stick to biopics (as specified in the contest rules) that are or purport to be dramatizations of actors' real lives (although I know the line between real real and reel real is often fuzzy).

    I know. What happened was I uploaded the ezgif link to my Imgur, but then forgot to use the Imgur link for my post, and because it showed the image at the time, I didn't notice.

    Made sure not to repeat that oversight with my next entry:

    Good entries so far. Let's see if we can come up with a few more.

    Some possible suggestions:
    James Cagney in Man of a Thousand Faces
    Jessica Lange in Frances
    Geoffrey Rush in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers
    James Brolin and Jill Clayburgh in Gable and Lombard (hey, I didn't say they had to be good movies about actors).
