Robinson I think will finish last, De Niro was good, but I dont think he was amazing, Ryan was great in his final performance, Max was great, I think Ryan will upset Shaw by an inch.

1.Robert Ryan
2.Robert Shaw
3.Robert De Niro
4.Max Von Sydow
5.Edward G Robinson

Everybody is shocked lol

I pick Robert Ryan because its the best performance of his entire career I think, and he has given so many good ones, Billy Budd, Crossfire, Bad Day At Black Rock, The Naked Spur, The Wild Bunch.

1. Shaw
2. De Niro
3. Ryan
4. von Sydow
5. Robinson

RatedRStar said...

James Mason was going to play John Housemans character in The Paper Chase, imagine that Louis, Mason could have been perfect in that role and got his deserved oscar 2.

Louis Morgan said...

I think Mason could have infused a lot more wit into the role while still being just as if not more imposing than Houseman.
