The idea here is that you list the top vote getters from the Channel 4 100 Greatest Movie Stars poll and list your favorite movie in which they appear.

I thought about choosing movies for all 100 people on the list, but as it was close to 1 AM, I decided to just stick with the top 20. Good choices for Michael Caine and Gene Hackman.
