'A notice, as at the beginning or end of a motion picture.'

Marlow Stern, at_The Daily Beast_, Sept. 6, 2014:

"The film... bears the disclaimer 'based on actual events.'"

I suppose that could be interpreted as a disavowal of the (correct)
assumption that the movie is mostly fiction, but it sounds more like an
endorsement of its level of truth.
