You could start with Robert Duvall, who was born after 1925.

I am almost sure James Stewart should be included, but incredibly Metacritic has a mistake, and instead of the actor filmography, his name leads to a video game maker, and thus we can't know his career average score, a huge error on them.

Yes. I saw that too. I was going to include him as I was sure he would have a high enough average. But alas.......No PAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is in The Shootist and it has a 77 Metascore!
He is in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and it has a 94 Metascore!

WOW
This is what real customer support looks like!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm kind of dissapointed, I checked again and James Stewart is still a video game designer for them.

We did our best.

I wonder if Jimmy Stewart would be in the Top 5 if he was here?

I think he would take Alec Guinness place. Maybe he would beat Newman, but I don't think he could be above Bogart. It would be interesting no doubt.

Oh my gosh, what a difficult choice: I love several of these actors. 'Good list of good actors! Lists like this make me feel like wow, aren't we lucky to be able to see films with actors who are this good. : )
Thanks for that, Ed. 


May I suggest a few small edits? (in bold below)

Also your suggestion made me realize the title was "Clunky" and "Disjointed"!!!

I've re-named it!
