I skipped people that this site neglects to have a photo of, like, the great Theme Ritter. I would have added her to this list and some other important actors as well. Canada Lee I could not Skip, pic or not!

    She is one of my all time favorite actresses and is in two of my favorite movies, one of which has been my all time favorite movie since I was 8yrs old (Detective Story), so I could be biased, but I do not think so, she is very special.

    One of the few that made it from silents to talkies. She is, of course, wonderful in talkies, but if you get a chance to see her in a silent, do because she was especially good in that format. Never hammy or over acting like many silent actors.

    Well, racism being what it is, and never mind 60 years ago. If you do not know him, he was the black guy in, "Lifeboat," for one.

    He did get nominated. in his painfully short life/career, maybe he would have been, recognized, but his politics were like Meredith, Lee, Douglas and Loy. Liberal - unpopular with Oscar. Reagan was pro union back then and was also overlooked in the day.

    Yes, it's absurd that Mason was not so honored. Probably the finest actor who ever lived. Who can forget Johnny McQueen in Odd Man Out? My personal favorite movie. Report abuse
