    Favorite Movie Stars

    There are literally thousands of stars to choose from. Lead actors and actresses, character actors and actresses, venerable stars with decades in the movies, and one hit wonders. Name some of your favorites.

    For me, today's actors are mostly forgettable, both in name, and their roles. If I was to pick a favorite actor that is still working today, I would have to pick Richard Dreyfuss. Definitely not a Cary Grant in the looks department, but in acting ability, and making impressions in their roles, it's hard to forget Matt Hooper in "Jaws", Glen Holland in "Mr. Holland's Opus", Elliot Garfield in "The Goodbye Girl", Louie in "Lost In Yonkers" (a movie few saw, but one of my favs), Roy in "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind", Curt in "American Graffiti", and so many others. He has starred in some of the biggest hits, and many very "small" pictures, but his performances always stand out. He might not be much to look at, but his acting ability always makes the movies he stars in better.

    As for actresses of today that are still working, I choose Sally Field. I REALLY like her! Her portrayal of Edna Spaulding in "Places In The Heart" put a place in my heart for her forever! She's wonderful in dramas (Sybil), as well as comedy (Smokey An The Bandit). She stands out in every role she plays, be it a starring role (Norma Rae), or a supporting role (Forrest Gump). Heck, I like seeing Sally Field in Boniva commercials!

    I am in love with Charlize Theron!!

    That is one beautiful tall woman. When she wears high heels she could be 6 feet tall. I liked her in Monster and I liked her in Sweet November and several earlier pics. I am not too pleased with some of her choices since she won the oscar. She is trying to get too meaty a role and it takes away from her. It is sort of like Demi Moore. Demi was good in Ghost but she took on some hard roles later and she is not the sweet girl of earlier years. I guess I just like the gals in thier twenties. When they get older, not as sweet.

    Probably a very chauvinistic view.

    Modern actors I like is Timothy Hutton and Robbie Benson. And yes I like Richard Dreyfess and Charles Martin Smith.

    All time favorite male actor: Gary Cooper. I was named after Gary Cooper so he has to be my all time favorite.


    Here he is in San Antonio being measured for boots.

    Warren Oates

    Thinking about "Bonnie and Clyde" on another thread reminded me of "Dillinger". It was a low budget American International picture, but was VERY well done. Warren Oates was wonderful as John Dillinger. I think he was a very underrated actor.

    A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody

    The new stars are pretty, but two stars from the early 70s have classic beauty that they still possess today. Neither one are known for their acting ability, but their beauty makes up for it.

    Cybill Shepherd



    You don't need a color picture to see how blue Cybill's eyes are. SIGH!
