Hey, what about Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier in American history? He plays himself in To Hell and Back. Or Blondie? He's a better character than Harmonica.

I'd vote either Lawrence or the Seven Samurai, unless you include Blondie. However, Kaji, from Human Condition, is my favorite pre-1980 hero.

Hi,

Blondie is an anti-hero. You can find him on my poll - Greatest Movie Anti-Heroes of All Time.

Audie Murphy was good example of hero but not as famous as the others on this list. Plus, AFI did not recognise the role in their "AFI's 100 Years...100 Heroes & Villains" list - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFI%27s_100_Years...100_Heroes_%26_Villains

Jen,

Thank you for your beautiful suggestion.

I have added Hilts 'The Cooler King' - The Great Escape.

Can you please tell me if there any more updates required? This is a huge project for me like my two-part villain polls.

'Good ones! 'So many great characters. I'm so glad to see Paul Rusesabagina, Karen Silkwood, Tony Mendez, and Woodward & Bernstein on the lists. My votes:

Pre: Atticus. Of course, I'd like to give the only woman my vote, but Ripley will get a whole lot anyway, and Atticus is my favorite. If Atticus gets a lot of votes, though, and Woodward & Bernstein don't, which I expect to be the case, they'll get my vote.

Post: Clarice, of course. She always gets my votes. 'Strange I didn't choose Starling as my username on IMDb.

'Fun set of polls, Dibby. :)

Suzy,

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for selecting this set of polls. This "Hero/Villain/Anti-Hero" Polls was my dream projects.

I would like to celebrate this moment with you and the other Beta42 members with a popular Indian dessert item called "Paneer Cake". The Indian state of Odisha is the home of this item.

Pibby,

I forgot to mention. Not a single person can finish it at once. They sell it in pieces as per customers' demand. The whole cake usually has the size of 10 - 15 pounds.

In the picture, it looks small but actually it isn't.

The usual size of this cake is around 30 centimeter diameter and 10 centimeter thick...!!!

I'm just going to go out on a limb and say: "ALL OF THE ABOVE".  And by that, I mean each and every one of the people on the list.  Can I get an "AMEN" on this one, please?
