Loved the list; however I could add a few more like Gary Cooper, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Charlton Heston to mention a few.

Thank you. After I did the list I realized this could have easily been a top twenty list.

Well, actually, I never gave a thought wanting to be Scarlett O'Hara. Maybe James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause. And I gotta tell you, I never thought Tyrone Powell was a bit yummy. But, hey, I'm just teasing, this is clearly the girl's version. Somebody put up the guy version!

You didn't want to be Scarlett even once?! Just kidding! You should do the guy's version. Although I might do a female leading ladies list too, based on good acting and not on yummy quality.

Re Jimmy Stewart --You do need to say more about him. You need to say "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington."
July 04, 2010
And then, just for fun, you could say "The Shop Around The Corner".

I should have! Darn, where were you when I was making my list? Maybe you could make a list of top movies for each actor I listed!

Thanks Lili. Would be fun -- but I just like the early Jimmy Stewart. I think if I do a list it will be my top 10 silver screen era comic actors - and Jimmy Stewart had to in there. Also, Gary Cooper for playing his straight man against Babara Stanwyck in Ball of Fire -- my very favorite screwball comedy.

I have never seen it...but I love Barbara Stanwyck. Maybe a list of favorite screwball comedies? My tops would be Bringing Up Baby with K. Hepburn and Cary Grant, them with Jimmy Stewart in The Philedelphia Story and then Fred and Ginger in Bachelor Mother.
