There Are 3 Classes Of Actors!

The Good, The Great & The Legendary!

Those Who Dont Come In The 'Great' List Are Either: Plain Good OR Ultra Legendary!

I Have Done 2 Lists: 100 GREATEST Actors And
40 LEGENDARY Actors

The Ones Who Couldnt Make Neither Of The Lists Are Plain Good In my Opinion!

OKay this is a pretty good list, but I can't seriously understand what you did with Chaplin there. He is still one of the best of all time doing what he did, and you picked for his best 2 completely unknown and average non-feature movies.

What happened to City Lights, Modern Times, The Circus, The Great Dictator, Goldrush or even Monsieur Verdeux and Limelight?? Any two of those would make much more sense IMHO.

Anyway it's a personally list, but I can't help but be a huge fan of CHarlie Chaplin and show my disappointment in your picks for him :P

I don't know about Leslie Nielsen, but good choices!

What about Robert DeNiro?!?!?!

Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Godfather 2, Heat, Once Upon a Time in America...to name a few

I'm shocked he's not on this list. I can only assume you forgot to add him.
