50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

"The Untruth: Billy Holiday sings the blues, and the jazz and the gospel when she isn’t being beaten up or having an awful time. Diana Ross gives a born-to-play-this-role performance by singing a lot like Diana Ross. The Truth: Holiday undoubtedly had a hard life and this film is hardly a chuckle fest. But even grimmer details were left out. After a cursory look into her real life you may need a hug"
