Favorite Actor Monday: Nearly Tuesday Edition

Let's hear it for Gene Hackman. That's all I got today, people. Sorry. It's been a lousy day.

Lilith (Robert Rossen, 1964)
Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1967)
Downhill Racer (Michael Ritchie, 1969)
The French Connection (William Friedkin, 1971)
Cisco Pike (Bill L. Norton, 1972)
Scarecrow (Jerry Schatzberg, 1973)
The Conversation (Francis Ford Coppola, 1974)
Young Frankenstein (Mel Brooks, 1974)
Night Moves (Arthur Penn, 1975)
Superman (Richard Donner, 1978)
Reds (Warren Beatty, 1981)
Unforgiven (Clint Eastwood, 1992)
Crimson Tide (Tony Scott, 1995)
Get Shorty (Barry Sonnenfeld, 1995)
The Royal Tenenbaums (Wes Anderson, 2001)

He, and Frances McDormand, are great in "Mississippi Burning," but it's not such a great movie. Same goes for "Hoosiers." Except replace Frances McDormand's name with Dennis Hopper's.
