Favorite Artists


Recommended Posts

It might be interesting to draw similarites/differences between your favorite star of old such as Jimmy Stewart and today's star Tom Hanks, or Spencer Tracy/Phillip Seymour Hoffman. It would be less about personal opinion and more about strengths and how each perceives their roles. Would be interesting reading for an old lady like me. No interesting things happening here in Monte.

One of my Favorite Actors from Days Gone by

would have to be: Peter Lorre.


After making 'M' 1931, which left him 'Type Cast'

Peter Lorre made a Wise Decision to Leave

Germany during 'Pre-Hitler' days.


Thus began his Long Road to Hollywood & Stardom

where he 'Conquered' the English Language

(though somewhat 'Choppy') when he starred

in his Next film, "The Man Who Knew Too Much",

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock . . .

Besides English & German, Peter Lorre

also spoke French.




Some of the Actors of Today, that I Admire

would have to be:


Michael Caine

Anthony Hopkins

Sean Connery

Clint Eastwood

Meryl Streep

Harrison Ford

Susan Lucci


Solely based on the Fact that I Remember them,

Wholeheartedly, when They and I were both

Younger and we 'GREW' up together . . .

I like your ideas and I can see resemblances between those actors/actresses.... I think that you definitely have an eye for it.


I am trying to come up with some similarities - I guess to me, the most old fashioned actor we have now is George Clooney. He reminds me of Clark Gable. He has a sense of humor in the way he says a line - as if it were the biggest joke in the world that he is making a living acting.
