The 14th Best Actor of All-Time: Paul Newman

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  Cool Hand Luke. Newman has only actually been in two masterpieces, this and Butch Cassidy. It’s a weakness if you’re looking at his resume and comparing him with the other all-time greats. However,

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  The Graduate remains Hoffman’s sole top 100 all-time film and it’s fitting because it’s also his best performance. I love Bonnie and Clyde and there are other important American films to mark the

1776 – 1972 Peter Hunt
