Which Real Historical Figure's Life Do You Most Want To See On Screen?

Illustration for article titled Which Real Historical Figures Life Do You Most Want To See On Screen?em/em

Our movie theaters and television screens have been filled with real historical figures (or at least characters who share their name and a couple of loosely related characteristics) lately. But whose life do you most want to see (accurately!) unfold on screen?


Would you pick someone from long, long ago whose life held little in common with ours, or maybe a historic figure from our not-so-distant past who has been overlooked in the recent biopic craze? Tell us your choice and also why you picked them. Be sure to include any particularly amazing stories from their life that you would want to see play out.
