Actors That Make You Smile Whenever You See Them!

Actors that make me smile? Someone already mentioned Marie Dressler. There will never be another like her! Just the sight of her in a scene will bring a smile to my face, always. Two others that I think of are two of the greatest character actors ever in Hollywood: Eve Arden and Kathleen Freeman. Both of them have brought so many wonderful moments to all of us through their characters. Sadly, both of them have been taken from us.

Errol Flynn! Especially in The Adventures of Robin Hood. He was such a handsome man, and always had that guilty smile on his face. That would be a good smile to my face...

 

A scared smile would be every time Anthony Perkins comes on screen, because all I imagine him as is Norman Bates. I can't watch him in anything without thinking he's a taxidermist!

I agree with Terrence1 about Eve Arden, and would add Thelma Ritter. You always know you're in for it when you see their names in the credits. Both could handle drama well too, especially Thelma in "The Misfits" and Eve in "Anatomy of a Murder". Love 'em both.

Lots of actors make me smile whenever I see them, and most have been mentioned here several times, e.g. Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart (especially in "Harvey"), etc.

 

Probably the pair of actors guaranteed to make me smile is Laurel & Hardy, and not just because of their on-screen antics. Knowing that they had a long and deep friendship makes what we see on-screen all the better.
