My 30 Favorite Actors

I know I've been delaying this for quite a while now but after a few months, I can gladly say, I'm pleased with my list. At one time, I was over 50 actors but I knew that I had to cut it down, so it's now at 30. As I did with the actresses, the first five actors are in order but after that, it's not in any kind of order. Also I listed movies that I feel is their best(this is my opinion, so what I put, you may agree or disagree with). So let's start it up!

very interesting list! you definitely tend more towards the sophisticated, smooth, suave types as opposed to the tough city guys. great to see guys like Brent, Tone and Fairbanks jr on a list of faves, those guys are far too under-appreciated, especially Fairbanks.

Can't argue with that much! I would recommend Red River with John Wayne and Monty Clift

Great list!! By the way, the three William Powell movies you named happen to be my favorites of his too! I got kind of excited when I saw that.

I agree with most of your favorites, but I think Glenn Ford deserves a spot as well.
