Kind of a pointless thread, I know, but what the hey, I like lists. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
I watched Walk the Line a few days ago, was inspired. I was wondering how many of these biopics have been made. I'm sure my list will omit a few.<br><br><br><br>
Walk the Line - Johnny Cash<br><br>
Ray - Ray Charles<br><br>
Bound for Glory - Woody Guthrie<br><br>
Coal Miner's Daughter - Loretta Lynn<br><br>
Sweet Dreams - Patsy Cline<br><br>
Elvis (TV movie with Kurt Russell) - Elvis Presley<br><br>
La Bamba - Richie Valens<br><br>
The Buddy Holly Story - Buddy Holly<br><br>
Bird - Charlie "Bird" Parker<br><br>
Lady Sings the Blues - Billie Holliday

Supposedly it contains a bit of 'revisionist history' but it's an amusing film with a great soundtrack. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hehe Jen - Thanks. I had that in my list, but took it out. He also played piano, so yeah, I guess it qualifies.<br><br><br><br>
There's also <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052809/" target="_blank">The Five Pennies</a> which stars Danny Kaye as cornet player Red Nichols. I've never actually seen it, but I grew up watching Danny Kaye movies, so I've known about it for a long time.<br><br><br><br>
Not to mention The Glenn Miller Story, with Jimmy Stewart playing - you guessed it- Glenn Miller. That one I <i>have</i> seen. It wouldn't be too bad, except it has June Allyson playing his wife, and she's way too annoyingly perky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smoking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smoke:">
