Only ten actors have managed to win an Academy Award and a Tony Award for portraying the same character both in film and on stage respectively. Who deserved it the most?

Eagles90,

This is my favorite performance:
Won the Oscar for Best Actor (1965) and the Tony for Best Actor in a Musical (1957) for his performance as Professor Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady (1964).

I will have to think for a while as to who deserved it the most.

Hey! Dan Dassow, Champion

Should this be a 'People' not an 'Image' list ? ?

(Have to go Click Click Click to see actors' names )

ACT_1,

The focus of this poll is on the role as much as the actor. An image list can provide the image of the actor in the role. A poll based on a people list would not show the actor in the role.

If/when this poll suggestion goes live, the actor's name will be visible.

I believe that Eagles90 made the right choice in using an image list.

OK, Can IMDb fix Image List to add a line of text to Image  ? ?

Many here use the Image List

'Probably Viola Davis but perhaps Anne Bancroft. Of course, all of the stage performances, except Davis,' were before my time and I didn't see Davis on stage. Based on the film performances, though, such would be my vote.

I'd suggest add the actor's name in the field with the other information, especially for #7. 

'Good poll.
