American Film Institute on June 15, 1999, published a list of 50 screening stars: 25 male and 25 female. The American Film Institute defined an "American screen legend" as an actor or a team of actors during the classic film era with a significant screen presence in American feature-length (40 min) films whose screen debut occurred in or before 1950, or whose screen debut occurred after 1950, but whose death has marked a completed body of work.

Which of the following starts, would you choose to make a biography film for?

You mean “stars”, not “starts”, and perhaps “screen stars” or “film stars” rather than “screening stars”.

I'd be interested in seeing one about James Stewart or Bogie.

FYI: There have been biopics made about Dean and Chaplin - James Dean (TV Movie 2001) and Chaplin (1992)... not sure if you plan to exclude stars who've already had films made about them.

Doesn't matter. Still there can be another film about them.

'Probably Brando, Dean, or Poitier.

May I suggest three small edits?
