I remember the first time I checked out this page, it compared the book version and movie version of Harry Potter's Severus Snape. I wonder where that image is now and if it could be linked into the Image Links page.

Should "adaptation" really include real life examples?

It seems to me that the problem with the attractiveness issue in an adaptation is that very often the adaptation makes the character more attractive than he or she was described in the original, which is especially a problem if the character's plain appearance was an important aspect of the character's makeup or important to the storyline.

However, when it's just a case of a good-looking actor portraying a historical figure who was not as good-looking as the actor, I don't see that it suffers from this problem. This to me seems like a completely separate trope.

Something under Hollywood History, perhaps?
