Who are your favorite stars?
Cagney, Robinson, Brando, Stanwyck, Loy, Wm Powell, Peter O'Toole. I also love the bottom tier stars like John Payne, Robert Young, Bob Cummings, Jack Carson, Robert Montgomery and my personal fave, Don Ameche! Not as big as say, Cary, Tracey, etc but actors who could carry a film and make you enjoy it even if the film isn't so hot. Charles Boyer fascinates me.
Who are your favorite directors?
Curtiz, Ford, Capra
