Least favorite Actor or Actrees of the Classic Period

Postby ken123 » December 6th, 2008, 1:14 pm

My definition of the classic period is from the the beginnging of the talking picture to 1970. Completely arbitrary on my accout for the time period.

Yes, I did steal this idea from Miss Goddess ( :shock: ), but with the lists on one page only .If you wanted to throw in Tom Cruise for any reason please be my guest. :lol:

Charles Bronson. Although some guilty pleasure could be had by some of the guys for his action flicks. 8)

Gary Cooper...though he's pretty great in Man of the West and the final 30 minutes of Pride of the Yankees.

Actually I have several but I'm only going to list two men and two women.

Men:

Frederick March
Charles Boyer - Both of these guys seem like sly greaseballs.

On the cusp: Marlin Brando guess why and Gary Cooper - It seems the older I get, the less I like Gary.

Women:

Joan Crawford - Can't tell if she was nice or a witch.
Jean Arthur - Ohhhhhh, that voice!

Frederic March
Jennifer Jones

Don't like the looks of either, and I've never believed a single word either one has uttered onscreen. I find both of them highly overrated and I avoid their films.

Anne, I like our tastes differ on this, I love Frederic March, Charles Boyer, what you see as greaseball I see as suave and Jean Arthur, I love her voice. I think we should agree to disagree :lol: :wink:

I'm only thinking of dead people - there are too many living ones that annoy me to list!
...Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, and Marilyn Monroe.
And I don't like most of their movies, either.
There aren't as many men that annoy me, except maybe Leslie Howard.

Give me Ginger, Joan B., and Zasu Pitts any day.
