You know the old saying. "Where's a Mail Man when you need one"
Oops wrong uniform! Movies and TV Shows have lots of Mail Men roles. Rain, snow, or sleet, they shine. Who is your favorite Mail Man? Or Fowl!

Good poll idea!  I know that there was a lady or two who worked at the post office on "Little House on the Prairie," but they might not be worth mentioning.  :)  In case you want to add them, one was called Kezia.

You take one Movie Star but their name in character is a combination of two or three names. Also the title of the made up movie title is the same combination
Example
John Wayne
And
John Wayne
In
The War Wagon
and
In Harms Way
character names
Rock
and
Taw Jackson

Combine them
Rock Taw Jackson in The War Wagon In Harms Way

Jason Mamoa
In
Tempted Game as Kali
Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo
Combined
Tempted Game of Thrones
as
Kali Khal Drogo

I have one in there that is a combination of three movie with 3 character names combined.
Gemma Chan

Pimp
Exam
Submarine
as
Bo
Chinese Girl
Kim-Lin
Pimp Submarine Exam

I had an old poll on this subject, which was removed in the great purge of character pages.

Apart from those you already have, some of the leading vote getters were

Stan Lee as Willie Lumpkin in Fantastic Four
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0498278/m...

and

Newman from Seinfeld:

Nikolay:
I'm from Germany. We have a very restrictive controlling system, that is based on FSK (FSK 0, 6, 12, 16 and 18). That movies can openly be advertised and sold in public. But when the BPjM examines a movie, it can be placed on two special indexes.

List A: Not allowed to advertise, but can be sold "under the table, silent, legal".
List B: Confiscated. No advertising, no property of it.

So sometimes movie companies cut the movie to get them allowed FSK18.
In 'I Spit on Your Grave' (FSK18, 2010) is 94 minutes in G, on IMDb it's running time is about 98 minutes.

When a movie gets the FSK18-seal, it can't be set on the index later. It stays FSK18, but later the same version can be FSK16.

'Evil Dead' (1981) was on the index for over two decades. It was available in a FSK18 version that was cut more then ten minutes. Now the uncut movie is FSK16. ... as time goes by ...

If you want to know wich movies in Germany are on the index, just go to this site:
https://www.schnittberichte.com

(Schnittberichte = translated: Cut-reports, German language)

P.S.:
'Blade' is on list A. They tried to put it from the index by a new hearing in 2011 and 2012, but the BPjM didn't move from their p.o.v. The named reason is, that the movie brutalizes the audience. (because of the shown violence)

BPjM = Bundeprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien
FSK = Freiwillige Selbst-Kontrolle (der Filmwirtschaft)

Related is a relative thing that happens at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Relativity is related in rhyme to Nativity, which is seasonal issue which is related to this time of the year which is wonderful. That begs the question, why is there no wonderempty?

By the way ... 'Blade' is wiped from the index now. (End of January 2019)
In Germany the uncut version of 'Blade' is now available as FSK18. A lesser
brutalizing version is available as FSK16 Version.

4 More really well known ones would be OK. I really wanted to start keeping my polls to 20 choices. But everyone has given really good suggestions. I have been actually going over some of my old polls that had 35 and cutting them back to 15-20. This one has such a diverse selection, I wont mind it getting to 25.

I looked at it. It is fuzzy and may stand a chance of being reported of low quality and removed at a later date, which would render the image as gone from the poll if it were to go live. That would require a re-push which I would rather avoid.
Thanks
Cheers.
See if you can find a better one!

I encourage you to reconsider the guy from Il Postino. I remember he died right after finishing the movie and it was kind of a big deal. He needed a heart transplant but he put it off until after the film because he said he loved it so much he had to do it with his old heart. He thought it wouldn't feel the same with a new heart. He was nominated as best actor and the movie was nominated for best film.

Okay, you're not gonna believe this: all other images of Ben are even fuzzier!  Maybe the one I posted will work after all - I'd really hate for the poll to go on without him.  For those who have seen "Christy," he is an iconic mail carrier.  :)  P.S. Love that you added Sinbad!

If you can find media a snap the shots your self you can get bad and good results.
I'm good at it
This is from Mr Ed's neighborhood (Me)
Hollywood uses areas like this for filming in California.

Visualize a lone man with a rifle, leaning to the right braced against the rock to steady his arm. Waiting to squeeze the trigger. A fixed crane camera slowly moves closer just to his left as the camera turns right all while zooming in on his face and rifle. Ya gotta get the shot before the sun is in the wrong place and your perfect shade goes away. The pressure of a Director! I want to do this so BAD!

May I suggest one itty bitty edit? ('just a period after "one.")

You know the old saying. "Where's a Mail Man when you need one."

I really like "Rain, snow, or sleet, they shine," and I love "Who is your favorite Mail Man, Woman, or Fowl? We are inclusive." "Fowl" is so great, lol.
