Twenty Actors List

Following in the wake of The Siren’s “Inevitable 20 Favorite Actors” list, here are a group of gentlemen whose presence in a movie might make me watch the movie even if I thought maybe the movie was going to be lousy.

Here goes, sans photos, explanations. In no particular order:

Charles Boyer
Joseph Cotten
Dana Andrews
Jack Carson
Arthur Kennedy
Van Heflin
Harold Lloyd
Buster Keaton
Henry Fonda
James Stewart
William Holden
James Cagney
Fredric March
Lloyd Nolan
Gregory Peck
Van Johnson
Edward G. Robinson
Robert Young
Humphrey Bogart
Charles Bickford

With regret for all the names I must leave off.

An interesting list-- being a silent film buff, am especially happy to see Harold Lloyd who both Eberle & I like a whole lot. I know he did some talkies, too, but I really like his early films: Safety Last, of course, but also Eastern Westerner, Speedy & Number, Please.

Hi, John. Those are great Lloyd films, and all, except for "Speedy" have been covered on this blog. He was one of a kind.
