42 Anthony Perkins - Psycho Anthony Perkins - Psycho V 1 Comment
43 Takashi Shimura - Seven Samurai Takashi Shimura - Seven Samurai
44 Gregory Peck - To Kill a Mockingbird Gregory Peck - To Kill a Mockingbird

This is the greatest performance ever. You can't find a flaw in his performance.

45 R. Lee Ermey - Full Metal Jacket R. Lee Ermey - Full Metal Jacket

The realism of this character is so intense, thanks to this great actor, who has only starred in a few movies but have made some memorable appearances and this is his best

He is so good in this movie, he maintains his realism, he made this movie what it is today... classic!

It has burned almost every performance on this list, it will definitely burn the overrated Pirates of the Caribbean performance of Orlando Bloom!

Great performance, A definite greatest War movie performance!

46 Bruno Ganz - Downfall Bruno Ganz - Downfall
47 Marilyn Monroe - The Misfits Marilyn Monroe - The Misfits Marilyn Monroe, born Norma Jeane Mortenson Baker (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress and model . Decades after her unexpected death, she has remained one of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols with her eye-catching style, champagne blond hair, and breathless manner of speaking . She ...read more.
48 Russell Crowe - Gladiator Russell Crowe - Gladiator

Why is this not in the top ten?

49 Charles Bronson - The Great Escape Charles Bronson - The Great Escape
50 Tim Robbins - The Shawshank Redemption Tim Robbins - The Shawshank Redemption
51 Christopher Walken - The Deer Hunter Christopher Walken - The Deer Hunter
52 Johnny Depp - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Johnny Depp - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

How dare you put Orlando Bloom's performance above Johnny Depp's! Depp was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his zany portrayal as Captain Jack Sparrow! Whereas, Orlando Bloom was nominated for the Worst Actor Razzie for his bland portrayal as Will Turner. Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow will always be the best performance of the series!

The fact that Orlando Bloom's performance is ahead of Depp's three times is absolutely ridiculous.

Who is drinking enough to think Pirates of the Carrabien has great acting? Those are good movies because of the plot not acting.

53 Sigourney Weaver - Aliens Sigourney Weaver - Aliens
54 Christian Bale - The Fighter Christian Bale - The Fighter
55 Kevin Spacey - The Usual Suspects Kevin Spacey - The Usual Suspects
56 Leonardo DiCaprio - The Wolf of Wall Street Leonardo DiCaprio - The Wolf of Wall Street
57 Jack Hawkins - The Bridge on the River Kwai Jack Hawkins - The Bridge on the River Kwai
58 Marlon Brando - On the Waterfront Marlon Brando - On the Waterfront

He's the greatest actor of all time. I was actually confused what to choice - the Godfather or On the Waterfront. But decided to pick up the Waterfront. Mr Brando's breathtaking acting makes me cry all the time I watch this film. Masterpiece acting...

The best of this lot, there is no accounting for taste concerning some ahead of Brando
