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!
