Better Late Than Never....My 20 Favorite Actors!

Ok, I know I’m a bit behind the pack with this, but I have been suffering from a very serious disease that can strike any person at any age. This disease is known as Procrastination. I have been dealing with it for most of my life, but it has been acting up quite a bit lately. Thankfully, I am beginning to get better. Since I have conquered Procrastination for now, I thought my little blog here needed to have a facelift to reflect my accomplishment. Let me know what you think about it!

Drum roll please…..and now without further ado, here is the list of my 20 Favorite Actors and the crowd roars....
William Powell
Van Johnson


Tony Curtis


Paul Newman

Laurence Olivier

Jimmy Stewart

Jack Lemmon



Gregory Peck
Cary Grant


Gene Kelly


Gary Cooper

Fred Astaire

Fred MacMurray

Frank Sinatra


Dana Andrews

Robert Cummings

Joseph Cotten
James Cagney

Marlon Brando

No, Marlon, this award is not for you. You weren't even a contender.

On another note, I would like to thank Kate Gabrielle and Millie for bestowing the great honor of the Superior Scribbler Award on me and my blog. It made me all warm and fuzzy to think that people actually liked my blog enough to give it an award!! I don’t know what I would do without all of you wonderful bloggers out there. For that reason, I think that every single one of you deserves the award as well. Knowing that I’m not alone in my love of classic film is reward enough for me.

Good list. You love all the major stars. I've never heard of Robert Cummings (although I'm sure I've seen him in something).

~Raquelle~

Nicole said...

Ohh I am so happy to see your list and especially happy to see Robert Cummings on there. Wasn't he fantastic in "Saboteur"? :)

Genevieve said...

Raquelle: Check him out in Saboteur or Dial M for Murder, they are two of his most well known films.

Nicole: I'm sorry it took me so long to post it : ) I love Robert Cummings and Saboteur is the film that made me fall in love with him.

Millie said...

Oh, you reminded me...I'm supposed to do this.

I love your list...it has tons of my faves!

BTW, I love the new design!

I roar!
James Stewart, Cary Grant, Joseph Cotten, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, William Powell... Great taste in actors!

Genevieve said...

Millie: Get going on your list!! I'd love to see it : )

Lolita: Thanks a bunch! I kind of have mainstream taste when it comes to actors as opposed to some of my choices for actresses.

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.
