Who’s The Best Male Movie Actor of the Sound Era?


My choices in ranked order:

(1) James Stewart

(2) Robert DeNiro

(3) Spencer Tracy

(4) Jack Nicholson

(5) Jack Lemmon

Yes, I KNOW I left out Dustin Hoffman, Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, Monty Clift, Sidney Poitier, Al Pacino, Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, Paul Newman, Johnny Depp, Henry Fonda, Daniel Day Lewis, Morgan Freeman, Sean Penn, and Tom Hanks.
