I really enjoyed the picture you chose of Leo...I didn't however enjoy the number next to it. I also am not a Mel Gibson fan at all but at least he didn't make the top 50!! :) Nice to see Ben Kingsley here!

Thanks for reminding me that I need to see Stalag 17. William Holden is awesome.

@Sara: I knew you wouldn't be too happy about that, but sacrifices had to be made, haha. I have always liked Mel Gibson, and I think he is often overlooked because of more recent events...

@Nick: It should be right near the top of your list. Classic Billy Wilder. ;)

Nice ...but I thought Kingsley overacted in Sexy Beast! :D
Was much better in Schindler's List!

Haha, he did overact, but in a good way!
