I'm new to this, so I don't know how recently you've had someone bring up their favorites. Doesn't matter, classic or characters in the now. My favorites are Judy Garland, Debbie Reynolds, Jimmy Stewart, Gene Kelly, and others. I also like Tom Hanks and Keira Knightley.

Short answer first-from this era-None(OK,MAYBE Kate Winslett,but it's still under consideration).

 

Silent and classic era(in no particular order,except for the first one)-

 

Norma Shearer! in anything! she was in a class by herself.

 

 

 

Mary Pickford(all-around great actress,I believe she could have played a wider range of roles had she not felt trapped in her "Little Mary" image,and she was Hollywood's first,and still the best,businesswoman)

 

Lillian Gish(what an artist! she almost froze to death doing the scene on the ice floes in "Way Down East")

 

Alice Joyce(especially for "Our Dancing Mothers")

 

Agnes Ayres(she was great in "The Sheik")

 

Robert Montgomery

 

Clark Gable

 

Glenn Ford(for "Gilda",if nothing else)

 

Rita Hayworth

 

Hedy Lamarr

 

Phyllis Thaxter(Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo)

 

John Wayne(She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,Rooster Cogburn,The Shootist,The Quiet Man)

 

Maureen O'Hara

 

Joan Crawford(only in her flapper period)

 

Constance Bennett(in pre-Codes)

 

Gloria Swanson(in silents-loved her in "Male And Female")

 

Richard Dix(great in "Broken Blossoms" and "Cimarron")

 

Fred Astaire-what elegance! no one was so debonair

 

Ginger Rogers(mainly in her Fred Astaire pictures)

 

Humphrey Bogart(perfect in "Casablanca")

 

Paul Lukas-I'm enjoying everything that I see him in,especially "Watch On The Rhine")

 

Greta Garbo,in anything except her last film.

 

Rudolph Valentino

 

I'll stop here,but I know that I missed a few more that I love.

I love actors in general, but I tend to favor blondes with unusual voices that are about 5'7''...

 

My favorites are a) Marlon Brando- the acting! He brought the people of Rome to their knees; B) James Cagney- I will watch an entire movie just to see him tease a girl, and he is a fine actor; c) Bing Crosby- Louis Armstrong said that his voice was like "gold being poured out of a cup," and I can't argue; d) Doris Day- bright in every sense of the word. Like sunshine.

You know I never mentioned Doris Day before because I just figured that they were looking for more classic actors.I love DD and have quite a collection of her work.Her movies were always light and easy to both the eyes and ears. talk about all- American she would be my choice with Betty Grable coming in a close second.
