* As a [[AdvertisingTropes commercial disclaimer,]] it means, "We used special effects to make this commercial, so [[DontTryThisAtHome don't expect our product to actually do this stuff]]." Applied to a lot of truck ads. (See DoNotAttempt). Also applied to "endorsements" by "ordinary people", who are in fact actors reading scripts. (This latter meaning has recently been subverted by: a series of ads for satellite TV in which famous actors do readings of ordinary people's letters to the satellite TV company; a series of car-insurance commercials featuring an actual celebrity seated with an actual customer, attempting to make their stories more gripping, usually by poking fun of their own image.)

* ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'' is based very closely off the real events of the actual spaceflight. Most of the scenes are very accurate ([[ShownTheirWork the filmmakers really wanted to get it right]]), and a good deal of the dialogue in Mission Control and in the spacecraft is based directly off the original recordings and transcripts. There is some dramatic license taken (such as an argument aboard the lunar module that never actually happened on the real flight), but the important points of the film stay very true to the actual events in real life.

* 1945 documentary film ''Film/TheBattleForSanPietro'' used dramatizations for all the combat scenes of the eponymous battle. However, the extensive use of JitterCam and the very sophisticated production skills of director Creator/JohnHuston and his crew made the combat scenes look so realistic that for decades after, people thought that they were real.

surely The Hunt For Red October would be Inspired By, not this trope
* ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'' is based on the the defection in 1961 of a Soviet submarine under the command of Jonas Pleksys (1935 - 1993) a Lithuanian whose childhood was marred by World War II and the later deportation of his parents to Siberia. A graduate of the elite Leningrad Naval Academy, his defection to the west at the age of 26 while in command of a sub undergoing its first sea trials inspired the character of Marko Ramius in Tom Clancy’s famous book, whose story is set in a later period in the Cold War with more advanced vessels and technology.

* A title card at the beginning of 1931 documentary ''Film/TheForgottenFrontier'', a film about nurses in the mountains of Appalachia, admits that most of what follows is a series of dramatizations made by documentarian Mary Marvin Breckinridge with the cooperation of the locals. They were RealLife incidents, however--the twins shown being given to the nurses to take care of grew up and got married.
