Tony Curtis! Nice! (You don't see him on many of these lists). I'm looking forward to the climax of this feature.

Jeff SC said...

Yeah, I think he is often ignored by most people. Thanks Nick, I can always count on you being nice enough to read my stuff ;)

Aditya Gokhale said...

Very nice..very nice...

1. You don't think Alien is amongst Ian Holm's top 5?
2. Agree with your top 2 for Brad Pitt.
3. Nice to see Judgment at Nuremberg placed above A Place in the Sun for CLift! ;)

Jeff SC said...

Thanks Aditya!

1. I don't like Alien, but that would be #6 on Holm's list for me.
2. ;D
3. Yeah, it wasn't nearly as major of a role, but he was perfect.
