Kim Darby was absolutely fabulous in True Grit, and even better in Dont be Afraid of the Dark . and Bill Owen was the soul of Last of the Summer Wine. My al time worst actor ever is David Bowie, especially in that abortion The Man who Fell To Earth.

Ms. Streep can't be all bad. She lives in the town just north or ours, shops at the local grocery store where we shop, and sends her kids to the public school just like ordinary folks (clearly a matter of choice, as we are surrounded by expensive private schools up here in northwest Connecticut). I like that, being a confirmed egalitarian.

Shatner is damned amusing! You should have seen him doing Loblaws commercials in Canada back in the 70's ("But, by gosh, the price is right!").

I think he earned himself a worthy place in entertainment history as Captain Kirk, as much because of his overdone acting as for any other reason. To give Bill credit, I've seen him make fun of himself for bad acting.

RangerSteve - I am entirely willing to read "Seven Years in Tibet", but I can't promise when I'll get around to it.

I want to thank everyone for their enthusiastic participation in this most auspicious thread! Much obliged.

I also agree that Charlton Heston has done some really notably bad acting.

Carry on acting...

I'd have to agree with that, Rick. Billy Jack was terrible. The Trial of Billy Jack was even worse.

I have sat in the Billy Jack truck, donated by Tom Laughlin to Rolling Thunder's camp in Nevada.

I know you must be green with envy to hear that. I have not met Delores Taylor nor Tom Laughlin face to face, however.

Or Winona Ryder either for that matter...

Ranger Steve, you win MY oscar for mentioning Delores Taylor. (Tom Laughlin's wife) Almost everyone named here seems to just be irritating to SOME in SOME roles, but Delores Taylor gave the truly worst performance I have ever seen. It was so embarrassing I have to believe that Laughlin needed her money or something to finance Billy Jack.

I have to admit though that I loved it when Billy Jack used his "pacifist boots and karate chops" to dismember the bad guy who was hassling the native kids! The Movie was awful, the theme song nauseating, but DELORES will live forever.

Yep, Murray, I think Sandy is thinking about Jeff Chandler, a truly wooden actor. I never could understand why Hollywood didn't use Indians to play Indians. John Ford used real Indians in his movies, of course but only as extras. "Scar" in one of his best movies (The Searchers) was certainly no Native American.

I agree with chantyranger and Peg, I think you folks are going a bit hard on Meryl Streep.

Kendall, you sure named a couple or three. How about Sonny Tufts?

Hey Murray......I too have that same problem with really lousy movies!!!! Something about them just draws me in........Really pathetic isn't it?

And worse.........Steven Segal......Completely without talent and a spectrum of emotion running from A to .........well, A-.......I don't think he has the range to make B. HOWEVER.........I can't resist the occasional Segal movie, for the 20th time. They're completely awful.....really hideous things. Didja' ever notice that with only the exception in one movie, he always manages to kick the shit out of 17 guys at a time, 49 times per movie and emerges with hardly a scratch? Wow......Whatta' guy!

Ernest Borgnine, there now it has been said.

I loved how bad he was in my favorite of favorite bad movies "Escape from New York"

"You want to see the Duke, Nobody sees the Duke!"

Arnold Shwartzenager as Conan the Barbarian, a movie that has one of my favorite stupid lines, "Two or three years ago they were just another snake cult, now their temples are everywhere!"

And the delightfull closing scene where after having killed all those who opposed him Conan sits and the marble stairs and assumes the "Thinker" pose.

How about Robert Newton? terrible actor, but, he IS Long John Silver!

Well, many of the people we have considered as bad actors, I consider actor to be genderless, are good actors who have had some bad roles.

Kevin Costner was good in Silverado,Tin Cup and The Untouchables. Other stuff, not so hot. He didn't ruin Waterworld all by himself, he had Dennis Hopper there to help him.

Chuck Heston was never all that hot to me but Will Penny was a great movie, the rest were not so great, even The Ten Suggestions were a little stiff and over acted.

Meryl Streep has never been a favorite of mine but she was perfect in Hollocaust and Sophie's Choice.

Marilyn Monroe was funny. Even when she wasn't spose to be.

Luckily for us for every 10 Chuck Hestons there is at least one Paul Muni. For every 10 Kevin Costner there is one Ed White. For all those Meryls and Marilyns there is at least one Jessica Lange and Judy Holliday.

I think John Wayne was a good actor, I think Ward Bond was much better. And Ben Johnson was the best of the three.

Of course thats my opinion and thats why we have horse races.

Little Hawk - As for Seven Yrs. in Tibet, read the book. Then you'll understand why no one liked the movie. (the book was great).

I liked KC's Robin Hood. There, I've said it, and I don't care who knows.

Whoever that woman was who narrated "Billy Jack". I believe she was actually dead at the time. She made Tom Laughlin look like Olivier.
