Best Film Actors & Actresses of All Time: Part 1

I collected over 22 lists of best film actors and combined them into one list – the results are below, organized by rank, with the most-listed actors on top.  (The numbers in bold indicate how many lists contained the actors’ names.)  Each entry includes the actors’ name, country of birth and childhood, dates of birth and death, a photo of the actor performing in a movie; and a selected filmography.  The filmography includes critically acclaimed films as well as popular successes.  This list contains all the actors whose names were contained on at least four of the original source lists. Part 2 includes everyone on three of the lists.  Don’t forget to click on the photos to enlarge them.
