Then there are others like Esther Ralston who I love but only a handful of her films survive. Ronald Colman was great too but I?ve only seen a couple of his movies. Jimmy Stewart and Vincent Price (it seems weird putting those two together) were also great and I like a lot of their stuff. Also Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Gene Kelly, etc?.

MissGoddess.....you disappoint me. Gravely


Hi Chandler! How've you been? I know, I know---no Ty, right? It's not that I loves him less, it's just that I love the others a leeetle bit more. What can I say? I have a soft spot for tough guys and Ty was a sweetheart. :)

Five guys is somewhat easier for me to narrow down than five ladies, but still...


Oh, and order doesn't mean anything past #1. Otherwise, the list could very well change daily!


Cary Grant

William Powell

Robert Montgomery

Charles Boyer

Fredric March

Howdy, Coop's Gal -- Shockingly, I cannot rip your favorites... too much. I like most of them. Karloff, Grant, Brennan, Arthur, Bergman, and Missy are all favorites of mine. But the most impressive thing you wrote was this:


Also Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Grace Kelly, etc?.


Wow! I knew it was only a matter of time before you figured out how amazing Grace is.


I?ll help you find that gun Kim. Frank has picked on Gary?s makeup for the last time!!!


I don't have to worry about Kooky Kim anymore. She's too busy in the Outback.

Somehow I don?t remember including Grace in that list. If I did, it was only due to temporary insanity :P.
