Average listal rating (280 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
1. Charlton Heston
I didn't really 'get' Charlton Heston and his popularity until I watched Planet of the Apes. I think it's only his receding hairline that I ever had a problem with. His tall stature and tendency to slightly overact are perfect for most of the science fiction roles I've ever seen him in. I want more.

Filmography: ~86 Films
Films I've seen: 12

Want to watch in particular:
Midway
The Omega Man
El Cid
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (409 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
2. Cary Grant
Cary Grant is the personification of a true English gentleman. Seeing North by Northwest sparked a brief interest in 'the oldies' but I never got around to watching any of his other films.

Filmography: ~79 Films
Films I've seen: 1

Want to watch in particular:
His Girl Friday
The Philadelphia Story
Arsenic and Old Lace
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (1494 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
3. Al Pacino
It's quite rare that I appreciate all the hype that one of the 'legendary actors' achieves and think that they actually deserve it. Al Pacino is an acting tour de force, and I wish I could return him back to being a 30-year-old man, so I could get another 40 years out of him.

Filmography: ~53
Films I've seen: 21

Want to watch in particular:
The Godfather part II
Scent of a Woman
...And Justice For All
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (298 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
4. Alec Guinness
I only know him as a patriarchal voice of reason, but he seems like a great screen presence nevertheless. Another exemplary British gentleman with a perma-brood expression. I could learn a lot from that face.

Filmography: ~44
Films I've seen: 4

Want to watch in particular:
Doctor Zhivago
Bridge Over The River Kwai
The Man In The White Suit
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (174 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
5. James Coburn
When he's employed in a serious role, I don't ever recall an actor coming off as competent and cool as Coburn. I'm pretty sure he was the same age for his entire life as well. I'd love to see more of what he's made of on the big screen.

Filmography: ~78
Films I've seen: 10

Want to watch in particular:
The Great Escape
The Magnificent Seven
Midway
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (1278 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
6. Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood has the face of a man who has seen a thousand sunsets. He's doesn't get older, just more weathered and disgruntled. There's a whole wealth of hard ass characters to be discovered in his back catalogue.

Filmography: ~72
Films I've seen: 18

Want to watch in particular:
A Fistful of Dollars
Pale Rider
Gran Torino
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (958 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
7. Monica Bellucci
Obviously solely for her ground breaking performances on the silver screen, and not just because she is actually the hottest woman on the planet, a venus incarnate.

Filmography: ~42
Films I've seen: 10

Want to watch in particular:
Dobermann
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Dracula
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (205 ratings) 8.8  IMDB Rating
8. ToshirĂ´ Mifune
Mifune sounds like anger personified. Every time he speaks it's like someone, somewhere is being scolded by him. An acting powerhouse, he was Kurosawa's workhorse which guarantees a wealth of awesome films under his belt.

Filmography: ~51
Films I've seen: 3

Want to watch in particular:
Red Beard
Rashomon
The Bad Sleep Well
Sanjuro
The Flagship's rating:

Average listal rating (304 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
9. Gregory Peck
Gregory Peck has a voice that is more morally upright than The Bible. His portrayals of calm, collected authority figures are inspirational. It's quite miserable that I've only seen two of his films.

Filmography: ~22
Films I've seen: 2

Want to watch in particular:
The Guns of Navarone
Moby Dick
Cape Fear
The Flagship's rating:


 

There are actors our there who fill me with awe and inspiration, yet at the same time I've done them a great disservice by not watching more of their back catalogue.

Here is a list of people who I admire, whose previous works fill me with the urge to feast upon cinema and suck the marrow from its celluloid bones.

Each actor's 'filmography' number is just taken from the number of films they appear in on listal's database. It's just a rough guide.

nice list AND intention. I hope you can finish each filmography! I'm doing something like that with some filmmakers I like.

btw, Charlton Heston has a vast one, huh? I wasn't aware of that! o.o

What about Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, or Paul Newman have you seen most of theirs?
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Apr 1 7:18
Charles Bronson?
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Apr 1 11:12
I'll admit to never having seen a Yul Brynner or Paul Newman film yet, so I don't know if I revere those actors or not. Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson have never really amazed me though. Although I did consider McQueen for a while, I ended up deciding against.

Thanks for the votes guys!
