I have always liked Robert Mitchum. Aloof, cool and detached. Robert Ryan is a second with his brooding nature.

Hmmm...
Robert Mitchum. No Way Out.
Fred Macmurray. Double Indemnity
Burt Lancaster. The Killers.
Humphrey Bogart. The Big Sleep / High Sierra

Hard to pick one favorite.

Mitchum and Bogart. It is a cliche, but they stand the test of time.

always been a Bogart fan. I've collected a copy of almost every film he ever made.




I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.

Got "In a Lonely Place". 1950? IMO, Bogart's best. Super direction - Nicholas Ray.

Without cheating, I’ll add Sidney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre & Edward G.

Cheating adds these folks.

Well, if you have to 'cheat' to answer a question about a favorite of yours, they're not really a favorite, are they?

Bogart, hands down.

Although I'd give Fred MacMurray an honorable mention for Double Indemnity since he played against type so well.

Lawrence Tierney. One of the great bad guys. He was that way in real life as well.

I totally agree - when someone thinks of film noir actors, Robert Mitchum has to be at the top of the list.

My now departed Mother in law once quietly told me in confidence that she always had the hots for Robert Mitchum......

Not a film noir but the final scene of the longest day is one of his best moments on film.

John Garfield. Always adept at playing a blue collar guy caught up in bigger world he did not fully understand. Underappreciated.

You almost forgot Robert Montgomery. Here he is, opposite actress Audrey Totter.
