What is your favorite movie about a historical figure?
Mine is Anne of the Thousand Days.share
The Great White Hope (1970) -based on events of the life of early 20th century black heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson
A very special mention to Downfall (2004) for a tremendously great performance by Bruno Ganz...and I don’t know how Edith Piaf stacks up historically, but Marion Cotillard’s excellent turn in La Vie En Rose (2007) is a favorite of mine....
Basquiat (1996) has been a favorite of mine since the first time I saw it.
A Man For All Seasons (1966) is one of the best ever.
As for movies that remain somewhat faithful to the figures involved? Probably The Bounty (1984). Dramatic license involved it would probably be Henry V (1989) or maybe Green Book (2018).share
Well if Dracula is not real then Braveheart I guessshare
Song of Bernadette, 1943 is up there.share
All the President's Men (1976)
Was obsessed with the movie/book/topic for a long time.
Movie is still one of my faves.
Spartacus, one of the best movies of all time.share
