Well, hope most of everyone's all-timers were/are forever even more-so immortalized? & even if not. They are still your personal favs. no-matter right! If anyone wants to also check & post any/and believe me, there are several! On AFI's Annual Lifetime Award Recipients, it's on my other recent post/plus info if anybody desires to purchase any of 'em on tape,etc.-(NOTE: I've gotten this special & the 1st one: l998's AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies," on tape, as well as the companion books & posters-FREE! Because of bein' a member. But anyone can still get them also. Check other post 4-details. This one is my personal fav. of the now too-many specials the institute is having! I've always had the theory that it tells more of a movie-fan/buff, by whom is they're fav. stars/than films>HEROES/HEROINES/ROLE MODELS & all.)

Let us know, whom you think they snubbed?

Personally, for me: Natalie Wood-(I know she's no: Garbo! The latter of which is probably the greatest actress in cinema history! But to me, Natalie shoulda' at least made the 25! Especially if Hayworth did!? & My childhood HERO: Steve McQueen-(l930-80) again, not a great actor versatility-wise. But one of thee: "Kings of Cinema Cool!"

(NOTE: Other post with all recipients & details,etc. is titled: *DE NIRO to rec. next AFI Award)
