  1. Har nog bara sett Dr No, Manchurian candidate samt Advise & Consent.

    Klart man gillar Sean Connery som nummer 1. Utan tvekan. Ikonisk!

    Blir lite sugen på att kolla upp Mr Hobbs...

    1. Många bra filmer detta år, vilket även ledde till flera bra prestationer. Dessa tio är de jag fallit för mest.

      Ja, jag hade ganska kul med Mr. Hobbs och James Stewart...

    1. Ahh, I have seen The man who shot Liberty Valance and I agree, great performances. And a great film, I think.

      I did find To kill a mockingbird underwhelming. It is one of those classics that did not deliver when I finally caught up with it. Maybe something in the story I missed...

    2. As for Liberty Valance, I actually rewatched it prior to finalizing my list. In a lesser year, Wayne and Stewart would've made my list. But I had a hard time removing the ten I picked. Though it's difficult not to appreciate John Waynes "pilgrim" talk ;)

      Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird is obviously also a performance one can't just brush aside. But these lists of mine are about personal favorites, not necessarily the best performances. And I agree with Henke, I've always found the film to be underwhelming.

      Haven't seen Il Sorpasso and Mafioso.
