Hollywood stars seem to take a subtle, almost perverse pleasure in playing one of their big-name predecessors on the big screen. Perhaps it feeds into an entirely understandable crevice of humanity’s collective ego, and isn’t exclusive just to actors. Indeed, most people want to believe that their life’s work is important enough to be immortalized one day, and for thespians, doing so for their forebears must encourage the notion that it might one day happen to them as well. Or maybe it is just because there is so much material to draw on when preparing for a performance of this sort, as the films of the past serve as a veritable treasure trove for any actor attempting to glean a look or mannerism from their intended mark.
