Mistaken Identity

I'm looking for books or films that deal with the idea of mistaken identity and/or characters lying about who they really are. I've come up with a few on my own, but for the most part my mind has drawn a blank and a google search hasn't helped. I know Shakespeare used this theme a lot, but I've only come up with three plays so far.

The ones I've thought of:

As You Like It (Shakespeare)
Midsummer Night's Dream (Shakespeare)
The Taming of the Shrew (Shakespeare)
The Prince and the Pauper
Casanova (the recently released movie)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Help?

ETA: Thank you so much for everyone's help. I needed a character to reference various movies and books and my mind was drawing a blank!
