10 comments on “Leading Man Tournament: Week 2 – The 1940s

  1. I’m sad that my beloved Gregory is not on the list :( He’s nominated for FOUR Oscars in the 40s and had about a dozen films that decade, some of them nominated and won Best Picture. So he gets my vote of course, but since he’s not here, I guess a distant second would be Cary Grant though I’m only impressed w/ him in North by North West.

  2. I’m hoping that Henry Fonda is represented in a subsequent decade. Anyway, I’m pretty sure Bogey blew it with The African Queen so its between Tracy and Grant.

  3. Bogey’s really great, and I think his films and his performances may be the most powerful of these men, but as Cary Grant is my favorite actor, I gotta go with him. He’s just…irresistible :D

    • Jamena, it’s definitely hard for me to choose between them too. I love so many of their movies but they are two total opposites. Bogey was so tough in contrast to Grant as the ladies man. Thanks for reading!

  4. I’m not familiar with the top three actors, so it’s a tossup between Bogart and Grant for me. Really enjoy the work from both, but for the 40s I have to go with Bogart. Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep… it doesn’t get much better than that.

    • That seems to be the leading duo…I’ll be lucky to see how long the tie between them lasts. Bogart DEFINITELY made an amazing body of work (as evidenced by all the films I listed that secured his nod). I REALLY need to review The Big Sleep soon!
