    1. Seen all films/performances on your list.

      I liked Douglas and Quinn (as I usually do), but not more than my ten selections.

      As for Lee Remick, I feel she over acts in some ways. So for me, James Stewart and George C. Scott overshadow her performance by far.

      It was tough to leave out Dean Martin and Angie Dickinson from Rio Bravo, as I liked both. But it was a tough competition this year and I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving any of my choices off the list.

  2. Crazy, for once I have seen almost all the films in your post. Only blemish would be not having seen Our man in Havanna.

    So many great performances, where to begin. I absolutely love Anatomy of a murder. The best performances are from Lee Remick and Jimmy Stewart.

    In North by Northwets we have a perfect casting and performance of/by Cary Grant.

    My all time western favourite Rio Bravo has great performances by John Wayne, Angie Dickinson and the forever drunk Dean Martin.

    At last some extremly entertaining performances in Some like it hot and I love the female lead more than the guys, mind you: Marilyn Monroe is criminally undervalued. I also like Jack Lemmon and to somewhat smaller degree Tony Curtis.

    1. Thanks for the comment and your thoughts. I agree that the year had many memorable performances.

      As always, it's very personal. And one should remember that my selections aren't necessarily the ones that I thought were best, but the ones I liked the most (that entertained me, I guess).

      As for Marilyn Monroe, she's a big part of the film and I know many like her in it.

  3. Bra lista! James Stewart, Charlton Heston, Walter Brennan, John Wayne, Jack Lemmon och Cary Grant hade lätt hamnat på min lista. Väldigt starkt år för film för övrigt!

    1. Tack, och kul att höra. Håller med att det var ett starkt år. Man blir allt lite sugen på att se lite klassisk film när man ser bilderna/namnen och tänker tillbaka på filmerna/skådespelarna.
