    TopBilled: Glad to see your choice of Alastair Sim. I definitely think he should have been nominated for Best Actor. Also, Kirk Douglas for Detective Story.

    1949-one opinion

    I'll chime in late on the De Havilland conversation. One of the great things about the Golden Age is that the versatility of the actors, I think, allows fans who don't like a specific performance, to very likely enjoy another one from the same actor/actress. The key is to watch many performances. An example for me is Eleanor Parker, who played so many different types of characters. However - and TopBilled can speak on this far better than me - the studio system could hinder an individual by continuing to place them in the same type of role they had success.
