Hollywood is only a part of cinema. And not even the best.

Hollywood is only a part of cinema.

well that is why I specifically said that I am only listing my favorite Hollywood actors - because I know that I haven't seen enough of foreign actors to accurately judge them. I've definitely seen quite a few foreign films – some Italian and quite a few French – and I certainly love some European actors, like Alain Delon, Jean Gabin, and Gian Maria Volonte; but I know that I have seen only a tiny fraction of the great actors from those countries. Also, since I don't speak those languages but have to follow the subtitles, I'm not judging the European actors in the same way I am judging the Hollywood actors. So, all in all, I just felt more comfortable listing my favorite Hollywood actors.

Also, as I've mentioned previously, I only watch Westerns, Dramas, Thrillers, Suspense, Crime Films, etc. In other words, no Comedy, Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Musical, etc. So, my list of favorite actors obviously only includes those from the former categories; I haven't seen guys like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.

Now I'll list my favorite actresses, again, in no particular order:
(There are a few names here that I may have only seen in one or two movies, but I've seen enough to believe that I love them.)

1) Marilyn Monroe
2) Ingrid Bergman
3) Elizabeth Taylor
4) Rita Hayworth
5) Grace Kelly
6) Ida Lupino
7) Lauren Bacall
8 ) Meryl Streep
9) Doris Day
10) Eva Marie Saint
11) Jane Greer
12) Ann Sheridan  :P  :-* :P :-* :P :-* :P :-* :P :-* :P :-*
13) Joan Crawford (The one actress at whose performances I could marvel even as looking at her nauseated me.)
