The Greatest Film Actors & Actresses of All Time

I only included on this list the actors and actresses I was familiar with. Many of the older actors like greta garbo and Julie Andrews are not on my list. I realize that some of those actors and actresses are on many people's lists. I simply am not familiar with there work or I have not seen any films they appeared in. I'm not into old films, by old films I mean films of the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and early 60's. The extent of "old" films I am familiar with are, PRIDE OF THE YANKEES, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, 12 ANGRY MEN, and MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON. There are plenty of actors that did not make my list that I like but in my opinion are not worthy of being on a list of GREATEST FILM ACTORS & ACTRESSES OF ALL TIME, after all that is the category not favorite actors. There some of the actors on this list I do not like, an example would be Meryl Streep.
