3. Marlon Brando
Born April 3, 1924, and boasting a career spanning 60 years, to use the word ‘iconic’ and ‘legendary’ would be a massive understatement when describing Marlon Brando. Studying with the actress and acting coach Stellar Adler in the 1940s, Brando would be one of the first actors to bring the Stanislavski system of acting and method acting to mainstream audiences.
Although his career would take a slight dip in the 1960s, the role of Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather in 1972 would remind audiences of his incredible talent and garner him his second Academy Award and Golden Globe Award. Despite Time magazine naming him as the “Actor of the Century” his career would again take a downturn as he was notoriously difficult to work with.

Whats about Gregory Peck? What about Sir Lawrence Olivia?What about Steve McQueen?You missed the mark,,
Oh, these are GOOD! But they did forget a few of well renowned and classically handsome actors of the time, such as James Dean, Rock Hudson, Sidney Portiere and let’s not forget some rugged looking characters nowadays looked real good back then such as Clint Eastwood and even Charles Bronson and lest we forget, former Pres, Ronald Reagan. My taste is more in the Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and Mel Gibson category tho lol
Charlton Heston and Patrick Swayze
James Garner-handsome versitile in many roles-also a good human being
Out of the # 1 Paul and # 2 Robert
Steve McQueen was one of the best!!!!!!
