Top 50 Stars of All Time

Premiere Magazine has assembled a list of the top 50 movie stars of all time. Of the 50, 20 are currently or recently working. Of the top 20, only 5 are still making films; of the top 15, only one is still making films. Since they were looking at stardom, versus talent, there are some upsets if you are expecting De Niro (#38) to trump Cruise (#3). It might be indicative of the declining importance of stars, or it could just be that stardom takes a lifetime to develop.

Despite your feeling about stardom versus talent it does provide some good information. For example, for each star they list the definitive works for the star, and a "must see." The list is definitely worth a read. --Terrence Ryan
