I'd choose him as well! He's such an icon, eh? Maybe my favorite actor ever, his effortless charisma and subdued performances really made his characters memorable.

It all depends how you look at it, but in one way, Sidney Poitier certainly had a great influence.

I thought John Huston was a surprising inclusion.

Pete,

In one way, Sidney Poitier certainly had a great influence. 

Great point - imagine if it was titled "Most influential... for 1967", Poitier would win that won by a landslide!

I know, I'm very hesitant to keep him on as I really think of him more for his directing than acting chops.

Kyle,

The images for Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood are borderline for cropping.

Most of the remaining images crop fine. You may wish to re-order the choices in your poll.

Dan,

Unfortunately this went live prior to me seeing your advice on option re-arrangement. If you think this has a realistic shot on the homepage, I can certainly swap their images for better ones.

How does the Top 5 look now, cropping-wise?

Live poll suggestion:  Will you still use/visit IMDB if they don't bring back the TV listings?  Uh, duh, NO!
