The Best 50 Actors of All Time

631 ratings | 122184 views
We might disagree about few of them or the orders, but most movie experts I think will not argue that those are the best male actors ever to appear on the screen. Actors not on the list but worth mentioning:Gary Cooper,Michael Douglas,Joe Pesci,Clark Gable,Clive Owen,Cary Grant,James Cagney,Robert Mitchum,Alec Guiness,Eli Wallach,Sylvester Stallone,Karl Malden,Leonardo Di Caprio,Brad Pitt,Liam Neeson,Samuel L. Jackson,Benecio Del Toro,Peter Sellers,Edward Norton, Peter Finch & Heath Ledger.

Dear Mr Azmi:  I couldn't agree with you more if this roster was based upon post WW2 actors only.   You have,  however,  largely ignored many of the stars of Hollywood's Golden age.  I think you should back up 15 years and amend your  listing....  (Gary Cooper ("High Noon",  James Cagney ("Mr. Roberts",) (Cary Grant, "An  Affair to Remember."  and MANY OTHERS !  (Please do a little research next time.) (All 3 of these movies were post WW2 and should have been considered by you.)

It's very prejudicial and unjustified that greatest of them were Charlton Heston Richard Burton Alec Guinness Rex Harrison Jack Hawkins too. They were inimitable and inscrutably peerless while presenting 50 great actors. Some wrongful inclusions occurred too which I abhor. They should have been dropped from the galaxy 🌌 of 50 Bhaskar Sen

By comparison, here is what IMDB lists as the Top 100. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls050274118/ Everyone has differences in opinion about who should be on the list, and the order of the list. That's only natural. Seems clear to me though that any list probably needs to be at least a Top 100 lists instead of Top 50 list. Probably apt to get a lot more satisfied people that way. There were a number of excellent actors, but 100 would cover most of everyone's picks I think.
Blake (1 month ago)
Sidney Poitier and Edward G. Robinson have to be on the list somewhere in my view. At the very least they should be on anyone's Honorable Mentions List. And also William Holden, Richard Burton, Jeremy Irons and Claude Raines ??? Lot's a good people not there.
Tony Andras (1 month ago)
A surprising list. The greatest actor of the 20th century was probably John Barrymore. Even Olivier copied him. And what of the great English actors like John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Guinness and even Leslie Howard?  If you are picking 'the best actors of all time' , they should be great stage actors too. This list also omits all the great actors from earlier times, like Booth, Du Maurier and Irving. The top five on the list of those who acted on stage and in film would be Barrymore, Olivier, Gielgud, Plummer and Burton. Of the personality film actors that litter your list, you left off many of the best, like Mason, Oldman and Cruise.   JASA
Tony Andras (25 days ago)
I feel you underestimate how good an actor he really is.  His part in Interview with a Vampire showed his consummate skill and range as a true actor.  The action hero roles are culturally appealing to his American manhood image of himself with too few outings to show his genuine talent. But he's got it.
Tony Andras (25 days ago)
A fair point.  I would never leave out women and how wonderful they are and were. But I thought this category was confined to cover men actors only.
Teresa Catherine (1 month ago)
Tony Andras Tom Cruise should not be in the top 50.
E. Sherry Miller (1 month ago)
I like your choices of great stage and film actors. However, where are the great actresses, of whom there are many?
TomKirkman1 (1 month ago)
Fredric March #1. His performance in Inherit the Wind could have been played off as a comic buffoon, but he instilled a touch of humanity that made his portrayal as one of the finest acting performances in history.

Some names on your list have not yet earned the reputation as Outstanding Performers of all times yet. They haven't been in the business very long and you already rate them as top 50.  No way, Jose!   And then you leave out those who have earned the title.  Give credit to whom credit is due, and don't list those not worth mentioning yet.  For example, you left out John Wayne and Charlton Heston, but you included Jim Carry and Will Smith?  Ha ha... That's a joke!!

Bad list, you forgot the greatest but you've entered Cage, Depp, Travolta, Will Smith.

Len Hummel (1 month ago)
Robert Mitchum, Richard Burton, and Gary Cooper should have been in the top ten. I agree (with some others here) that Travolta and Will Smith don't belong on this list. Maybe no to Mick Cage also.
Esta lista es una chapuza ...

The title of the video should have been 'The top 50 Hollywood actors of all times'. I come from India and I can name couple of actors who would have chewed up everyone on the list with the exception of Brando, Chaplin and Olivier

You must have a serious drinking problem to include Carey,Washington,Trovalta and the likes and not include John Wayne makes your list look foolish,there are very few modern actors who could hold a candle to those from earlier years.

I take it your a young man who is not familiar with the classic movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood??? You are entitled to your personal opinion, as I am mine. Check out Oscar and Emmy winner, William Holden #1. Sunset Blvd, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Golden Boy, Network, The Wild Bunch, Picnic, Love is a Many Splendored Thing. I can go on and on. All Oscar winning flicks, or at least nominated for it. To not even give a honorable mention shows me that you did not do much research on this subject. No like, no subscribe!!!!!

Andy Smithson (4 months ago)
Considering ability, best performances and number of great performances: 1. Nicholson 2. Brando 3. Bogart 4. Newman 5. Burton 6. Caine 7. Pacino 8. De Niro 9. Hackman 10. Scheider 11. Redford 12. Heston 13. Dean 14. George C Scott 15 Duvall 16 Crowe 17. Hoskins 18 Mitchum. All were tough guys without a flaw who conveyed authenticity. The dialogue in the older era was too stilted to be believable, but Bogart and Joseph Cotten were not affected. Too many wimps and bad scripts after about 1990.
