Cinema's leading men didn't change much over the course of the 20th century; their clothes and styles may differ from decade to decade, but they all sport an air of sophistication and charm. They include some of the best actors in the history of film, and regardless of era or genre, these men have dazzled audiences for generations.
The antics of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton still send audiences into fits of laughter. The actors of Hollywood's Golden Age were undoubtedly suave, while the actors of the '50s, '60s, and '70s were the essence of rebellion and counterculture. Whether they're wearing three-piece suits, t-shirts, extravagant neckties, or a leather vest over a bare chest, all of these leading men have made great contributions to the film industry - and looked good doing it.
