I used this list:
http://digitaldreamdoor.nutsie.com/pages/movie-pages/movie_actors.html

The number represents the number of films of each actor I've seen.
I really need to see more movies.

Haha, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, classic! Loved that storyline. I should go and find that on here and rate it. Hm.

I think the AFI list is called "Greatest Screen Legends" unless they have several actor lists. It means the actors are famous, not necessarily talented, although an actor may be both. This seems to be only the male actors. NMatrucci, when you mark 0 films for Brando, Cooper, Peck, Cagney, and on and on, does that mean you have never seen these actors in any movie? Here are the numbers for me, without listing the actual film titles. I did not list any bit parts, cameos, narrations, or voice-overs, only actual appearances in a leading or supporting role in front of the camera.

Marlon Brando 14 films
Laurence Olivier 6 films
Robert De Niro (parts of 7 films, didn't care to finish any)
James Stewart 22 films
Alec Guinness 5 films
Humphrey Bogart 17 films
Gregory Peck 16 films
Jack Nicholson 8 films
Henry Fonda 12 films
Spencer Tracy 15 films
Charles Chaplin 5 films
Gary Cooper 9 films
James Cagney 6 films
Al Pacino 3 films
Cary Grant 18 films
Sidney Poitier 7 films
Paul Newman 10 films
George C. Scott 6 films
Burt Lancaster 9 films
Anthony Hopkins 3 films
Dustin Hoffman 6 films
Peter Sellers 14 films
Robert Mitchum 9 films
Richard Burton 9 films
Yul Brynner 5 films
Edward G. Robinson 8 films
Charlton Heston 5 films
Clark Gable 12 films
William Holden 6 films
Jack Lemmon 13 films
Gene Kelly 9 films
Charles Laughton 3 films
Denzel Washington 0 films
Fredric March 5 films
Errol Flynn 5 films
Kirk Douglas 5 films
Orson Welles 5 films
Gene Hackman 6 films
Robert Duvall 10 films
John Wayne 15 films
Anthony Quinn 6 films
Michael Caine 11 films
Sean Connery 7 films
Peter O'Toole 3 films
Harrison Ford 4 films
Robert Redford 6 films
Buster Keaton 2 films
Richard Harris 3 films
Sean Penn 2 films

@Lance666 I just looked into it. When compiling this list I was looking at many different "Best Actor" lists. I must have come across the AFI "Screen Legends" list, but didn't use it. I got mixed up and somehow attributed this list to AFI instead. Thanks for catching that. I have updated the description.

And yes, the number how many films I've seen featuring each actor. Most of these are extremely lacking, a problem that I am continually working on fixing.
