David Strathairn-- He was the evil father in Dolores Claiborne. He has been in most of John Sayles films, also. He is an excellent character actor, and was extremely sympathetic as the pitcher in 8 Men Out, but when he gets a Hollywood part, he always plays a sleazebag.
Irene Dunne-- She’s one of my very favorites. She was funnier than Katharine Hepburn, and a better dramatic actress than Vivian Leigh or Janet Gaynor. The problem is that more than 2/3 of her films were remade, and the remaking studios always bought the rights to the originals, and withdrew them from circulation, so there was something like a 50 year gap when most of her films couldn’t be seen at all.
Lynn Redgrave-- Yes, she really is as good as her sister, I don’t care what anyone says.
Tracy Camilla Johns
Lucy Lawless-- Yes, I’m serious. I truly believe she has real talent.
