Get Your Popcorn Ready: The 13 Best Biopics About Women

- By

Lady Sings The Blues

Jazz singer Billie Holiday was raped as a child and worked as a prostitute before the age of 14. Turning her life around, Holiday became one of the greatest jazz singers of all time. Legendary singer Diana Ross channeled the troubled Holiday in the 1972 biopic Lady Sings the Blues. Trying to overcome a drug addiction and move past her criminal records, the film ends with Holiday’s triumphant return to the stage with a sold-out show at Carnegie Hall. Holiday passed away from cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 44.
