The 55th Best Actor of All-Time: Peter O’Toole

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: Lawrence of Arabia is the 12th best film of all-time according to my last update and a giant masterpiece. Lean’s epic is simply one of the most beautiful films of all-time, film’s greatest

The 56th Best Actor of All-Time: Heath Ledger

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: The Dark Knight as his best film is an easier answer than “best performance” for Ledger. I’m an admirer of Brokeback Mountain and it’s an excellent film—but the answer is Nolan’s 2008 masterpiece

The 57th Best Actor of All-Time: Morgan Freeman

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: Morgan Freeman’s best film is probably Unforgiven (Dark Knight another fine option/masterpiece) but how about the idea that The Shawshank Redemption is his fifth best film? Pretty wild, right? I love Shawshank Redemption

The 58th Best Actor of All-Time: Orson Welles

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: Citizen Kane is a top five all-time film. It is so clearly worthy of its lofty reputation and the praise bestowed upon it. It’s a stylistic showpiece that never gets old or relents.

The 59th Best Actor of All-Time: Jeff Bridges

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: The Big Lebowski. It’s always a great sign for an actor or actress when their best film lines up with their best performance. The Big Lebowski is a comic masterpiece that ranks amongst

The 60th Best Actor of All-Time: Michael Caine

2020-07-03T10:30:20+00:00

best film: Hannah and Her Sisters though this could certainly change over time as the closest two contenders are so recent that I hesitate to compare them with a film like Hannah which I have

The 61st Best Actor of All-Time: James Dean

2020-07-03T10:30:23+00:00

best film: Rebel Without a Cause. James Dean made three films and I’d accept any as his best film and any as his best performance. They’re all close. I’d give the edge to his work

The 62nd Best Actor of All-Time: Alain Delon

2020-07-03T10:30:24+00:00

best film: Rocco and His Brothers. I only have seven total films in the archives for Delon but look at them- they’re all so damn good.  Antonioni’s The Eclipse is a fabulous film and it

The 63rd Best Actor of All-Time: Steve McQueen

2020-07-03T10:30:24+00:00

best film: Bullitt though I’m not married to this one. The Great Escape is excellent, Peckinpah’s The Getaway has grown on me over the years. For now though, I’m good with Bullitt as McQueen’s best

The 64th Best Actor of All-Time: Martin Sheen

2020-07-03T10:30:24+00:00

best film: Apocalypse Now is a monster. Over the years it’s been creeping up the list on the TSPDT and Sight and Sound top 100 (currently at #11 and #14). I’ve had it as the

The 65th Best Actor of All-Time: Warren Beatty

2020-07-03T10:30:24+00:00

best film: McCabe & Mrs. Miller and this one has changed and evolved over the years. It used to be Bonnie and Clyde- which I consider a masterpiece as well- but Altman’s mood piece with

The 66th Best Actor of All-Time: Anthony Hopkins

2020-07-03T10:30:24+00:00

best film: The Silence of the Lambs is the sole Hopkins masterpiece.  Howard’s End is fantastic, as is The Elephant Man and Nixon (all top 10 worthy in their year) but the choice here is
