Here are a few more late additions from films that I have recently seen or revisited that have made my top tens

1954

Supporting Actor

5.  Peter Ustinov (George Augustus Frederick, Prince of Wales/“Prinny”/Prince Regent/King George IV), Beau Brummell

 

1988

IMO, after seeing Dangerous Liaisons for a third time I came to the conclusion that Michelle Pfeiffer had the leading actress role and that Glenn Close’s part was the supporting one.  Pfeiffer simply has much more screen time.  This flip-flop made me rearrange some of my rankings.

Here are a few more late additions from films that I have recently seen or revisited that have made my top tens

As you see, I recently did a Garbo fest.  I’m not including here performances I have already mentioned in this thread such as Camille, Anna Karenina, Anna Christie, Queen Christina and Ninotchka.

1929

Actress

MV5BZjAwZjcyYTYtYzBkMy00MzBkLWEyNTctMGFk

3.  Greta Garbo (Lillie Sterling), Wild Orchids

6.  Greta Garbo (Irene Guarry), The Kiss

 

Supporting Actor

5.  Lew Ayres (Pierre Lassalle), The Kiss

 

1930

Actress

MV5BMzkwY2RkOWQtODBkMi00ZDZiLTlkN2MtOTc4

1.  Great Garbo (Anna ‘Christie’ Christopherson), Anna Christie and Anna Christie (German version)

I recently watched these two versions back to back and Garbo is just as good performing in both languages.

7.  Greta Garbo (Rita Cavallini), Romance

 

1931

Actress

3671869829_925f3942bd_b.jpg

9.  Greta Garbo (“Mata Hari”/Margaretha Geertruida Zelle MacLeod), Mata Hari

After seeing this again it made my top ten.

 

1932

Actor

5.  Lionel Barrymore (Grigori Yefimovitch Rasputin), Rasputin and the Empress

OTT is a wonderful way.  Quite creepy and would have made an actor like Jack Nicholson proud.

 

Actress

greta-garbo-in-as-you-desire-me-1932--al

9.  Greta Garbo (Zara/“Countess Maria Varelli”), As You Desire Me

Fantastic in the first half hour but unfortunately the film and hence her performance falls flat thereafter.

 

Supporting Actor

7.  Erich von Stroheim (Carl Salter), As You Desire Me

 

1934

Actor

MV5BMjZhZjM0Y2UtZjk0OS00ZDhkLWEyOWItNmVi

8.  Herbert Marshall (Walter Fane), The Painted Veil

 

Actress

mbSKCFZVWxhVnpQXEnFZsNaWiUdx8LDL2P7zPEB2

6.  Greta Garbo (Katrin Koerber Fane), The Painted Veil

 

1935

Supporting Actress

10.  Mrs. Patrick Campbell (“the Pawnbroker”), Crime and Punishment

 

1936

Actor

MV5BZTEzOGFjNDctNDI2Ni00MTlhLWIyNjgtOTZm

2.  Charles Boyer (Archduke Rudolf Franz Karl Joseph of Austria), Mayerling

 

1937

Actress

MV5BMzhjNGIxMzItN2JiOS00MTg1LWE5MzUtM2I4

3.  Greta Garbo (Countess Marie Laczynska Walewska), Conquest

Not the greatest film but after seeing it again Garbo’s performance moved up a couple of places in my estimation.

 

Supporting Actress

6.  Maria Ouspenskaya (Countess Pelagia Walewska), Conquest

 

1976

Actor

casanova_alberto-grimaldie-productions_9

6.  Donald Sutherland (Gacimo Gioiano Casanova), Fellini’s Casanova

After seeing this again, Sutherland’s performance moved up three places in my estimation.  The film is far from perfect but Sutherland is terrific and his craftsmanship and ability to loop his entire performance is on full display.

 

2018

Actor

MV5BYTRiM2JkYjItNzNiMi00YWFmLWE2N2ItYTEy

7. Jean Dujardin (Captaine Charles-Gregoire Neuville), Return of the Hero
