Comment and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs. shipperx gave me:

Robert Redford - The Great Gatsby (1974)
I've always had great respect for Robert Redford as an actor, and later, a director; and it's been hard picking an over-all favourite from the huge body of work he's done over the years. In the end, I went with the first film I can actually remember having seen him in, and can remember too, the tears I cried by the end of it.
Jack Nicholson - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
Tom Hanks - Cast Away (2000)
Christian Bale - Empire of the Sun (1987)
Christian Bale is a fine actor, but none of the films he's been in recently have made much of an impression on me. I couldn't care less about comic book heroes and Brett Eastman Ellis's American Psycho was so much better as a novel than as a film, so I've had to go right back to the beginning of his career to think of a film that did.
Carey Grant - North by Northwest (1959)
John Rhys-Davies - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
Gary Cooper - Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (1936)
Kevin Bacon - Diner (1982)
Ed Norton - Fight Club (1999)
Anthony Michael Hall - The Breakfast Club (1985)
This is the one actor I had to look up. The name rang no bell, nor did the photos of him I found on the Internet, but apparently he appeared in The Breakfast Club that as luck would have it, is one of my favourite films of the 80s.

Irene Dunn - Penny Serenade (1941)
Faye Dunaway - The Three Musketeers (1973) & The Four Musketeers (1974)
To my mind, these are still the definitive Musketeer-films. None of the later adaptations ever came close to giving me the same pleasure watching them
Olivia de Havilland - The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
Keira Knightley - Pirates of the Caribbean (2003-7)
Sigourney Weaver - Half Moon Street (1986)
Demi Moore - Ghost (1990)
Angelina Jolie - Kung Fu Panda (2008) (voice)
Surprising, perhaps, to have chosen a film in which she isn't physically present, but...yeah
Meg Ryan - Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
Julianne Moore - The End of the Affair (1999)
Barbara Stanwyck - Double Indemnity (1944)
