Favorite Performance? (Besides Quint)


For me, it's King Henry VIII from A Man for All Seasons.

A Man for All Seasons is one of my favorite movies.

Other favorites

Grant - From Russia With Love
Lord Randolph Churchill - Young Winston
Doyle Lonnegan - The Sting (him more than the movie)
Bernard Ryder aka Blue - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (him more than the movie)

If I had to name one besides Quint...tough but I'll say The Sting.

A Man For All Seasons is his best performance. But, DAMN!, he is sexy as f in Battle Of The Bulge and From Russia With Love. He should have always stuck with the blond look.
