Whoa. You could land Amelia Earhart's Lockheed L-10 Electra on Hilary Swank's forehead.

Dead and Famous Women in the Oscar Race

snippet from the article here...

"This year, especially in the Best Actress category, it feels like there are more true-ish stories being told than fictional ones. Manohla Dargis points this out in her article on all of the dead women being revived this year:

For actresses, it is no longer enough to be young and beautiful onscreen, they have to be dead and famous, too — one of history’s immortals. Filmmakers have long resurrected the dearly and notably departed with actors and actresses who flatter their memories, of course, partly because Academy members like to reward other success stories. Last year, Marion Cotillard warbled her way to the awards podium for her turn as Édith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose.” Since 2000, six of the best actress awards were for biographical performances, most of dead women. This year, Julia Child, Coco Chanel, Queen Victoria, Keats’s great love, Fanny Brawne, and now Amelia Earhart are all making a run for it."

I'm still bewildered by the pics of her a while back with ginormous breasts.. it was like Haley's Comet Passing. By the time you can say: What was that? ...it was gone and never to return in your lifetime.
