  1. JOHN GARFIELD: DEAD BEFORE HE COULD REACH 40, THE AGE HE BELIEVED ACTORS BECAME GREAT ACTORS. John Garfield was a major movie star during the studio system era. He was an activist and campaigned for a role in Gentleman's Agreement opposite Gregory Peck about anti-Semitism. He won the role. Garfield was himself Jewish. Garfield was ready to join the fight in WWII and showed up only to fail the medical - 4F - like a lot of Hollywood stars did - because of heart problems. But Garfield wanted to contribute to the war effort as best he could and joined Bette Davis in starting Hollywood Canteen - a place where military personnel of any branch could stop off each night and be entertained by the most famous actors, actresses, dancers, singers and comedians every night. He and Bette Davis later played themselves in the movie version Hollywood Canteen. edit: Tom has pointed out that it was Bette Davis who was the actress behind Hollywood Canteen. No problem. Everyone wanted to help out. His signature movie is The Postman always Rings Twice. But other favourites of mine - I mean my top 5: Between Two Worlds Destination Tokyo They made Me a Criminal The Sea Wolf I've seen 17 of his films so far. Considering he died at 39 - he made a lot of films. The only film I tried to watch and could not get through was Dust Be My Destiny. Maybe it was a bad day for me. Maybe I just don't like this film. I'll have to try it out again.
  2. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/buster-keaton-movies/ ClassicMovieRankings has now completed his Ultimate Movie Rankings page on AFI legend Buster Keaton. I see that he has not yet published a link on this, so I am starting a thread. This completes the top 25 actors of AFI's greatest male movie stars and now he has only one female star to go to complete the whole 50: Mary Pickford. Buster Keaton is my favourite silent movie star so I've been waiting for this one a long time.
