BrandoJuly 21, 2012 at 1:41 pm #539106
how is Laurence Olivier not on this list?July 24, 2012 at 7:35 am #539107
You use 8 slots when you can use 10.
You left off not only Laurence Olivier, but Peter O’Toole, Jack Lemmon, Gene Hackman, Ralph Richardson, Walter Brennan, Richard Burton, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Peter Sellers, among othersJuly 24, 2012 at 7:36 pm #539108
Of this list, I decided to go for Daniel Day Lewis, though Pacino, Brando, DeNiro, and Welles all had some pull…..but I do think I would have considered James Stewart or Peter Sellers or Dustin Hoffman or Olivier before them.May 21, 2013 at 10:00 pm #539109
Olivier is the flaming omission 🙂 and would never “Hanks” the thing… but DDL was my choiceMay 22, 2013 at 11:29 am #539110
From this list Brando and Day-Lewis run the tightest race, had Hoffman been on it it would be between the 3 of them. Although, I adore him…Gene Kelly???
Even though he’s done a lot of crappy performances over his career, the great ones far outweigh the rest…I’m gonna go with Brando.May 22, 2013 at 11:45 am #539111
In terms of film acting, Brando, Day-Lewis, and Hackman are my picks. From what I’ve heard, Hackman was especially popular among actors in terms of his ability. Before he went out with a whimper in Welcome to Mooseport, he was a hot commodity with whom everyone wanted to work.
However, I would gander that Welles was technicallly greater than most of these people. I’d say the same about Olivier. However, my favorite is Nicholson, by far.May 22, 2013 at 12:45 pm #539112
Dustin HoffmanMay 23, 2013 at 7:32 am #539113
Laurence Oliver came to mind but since he isn’t listed, I gotta say DDL
