Giulietta Masina. So powerful in her art, she pulled out your guts and showed them to you in tears. La Strada, that is all.

Robert Deniro. You thought that his tough guy stuff in Goodfellas was good? He became legend after performances in Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Mean Streets. Watching him, you shudder and think, "Can he really be that good?"

Paul Newman. Amazing performances in HUD, Cool hand Luke and countless others. A fine performer.

Anna Magnani. A powerhouse in every sense. See her in the Fugitive Kind and watch a fiery batch of talent explode.

Anthony Hopkins. You could see what his thoughts were. His gaze was so full of meaning that all he had to do was look at you. Silence of the Lambs, Remains of the Day, Nixon.

The first lady of cinema. Others are good but no one comes close to the artistry that this genius can produce. Made to do one thing and one thing only... She is the quintessential actor. See her in everything, especially Sophie's Choice and the Deer Hunter.

Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy... His performance is utter brilliance. Without him, you wouldn't have 3/4s of the actors you have today.
