Great work! I loved Robert Downey Jr as Charlie Chaplin, Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence, and Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela. Also loved Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. Hayden Panettiere was great as Amanda Knox. You could add Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty as Bonnie and Clyde, Judy Davis as Judy Garland, Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette and of course KIRK DOUGLAS AS VINCENT VAN GOGH.
