Recommended Posts

Was kinda debating this one to post of here or not, it's rather large & thought it was on CBS-TV in June of 1999, many didn't pay as much attention to this American Film Institute special as the now famous 1998 100 Movies epic special-(NOTE: For which it had an even lesser known follow-up/sequel in 07)

Actually had to get this sown & dusty too, from my walls-of-fame

Unlike those & like AFI's 100yrs of Movie Music-(which I just posted) There's just 25 finalists as opposed to "100"

 

(Rules: Each winner must have either started their career before or after 1950 to qualify & of course it's divided into male & female) Thought it started it's famous AFI Lifetime Achievement award it was founded in l967 Peck was the first chairman

 

So here goes & hope some find fun in it-(I've long only posted to top ten, but not the 15 runners-up) (P.S. I personally enjoyed this special,etc over 100 movies)

 

AFI's all-time actor:

1st place Humphrey Bogart (l899-l957) 5'8

2. Cary Grant (l904-l986) was 6'1 & 1/2-(& AFI never gave him it's annual award? Unlike Oscar recipient must accept in person & Cary likely would have)

3. James Stewart (l908-97) 6'3 & 1/2

4. Marlon Brando (l924-2004) 5'10

5th Fred Astaire (l899-l987) 5'9

12 Gregory Peck (l9l6-2003) 6'3
