5. Larry Parks in The Jolson Story- Larry Parks is okay and does what he needs to do, but that is very little.
4. Gregory Peck in The Yearling- Peck gives a nice performance, despite struggling with the old timey dialect he is given. Not much but okay.
3. Fredric March in The Best Years of Our Lives- March gives a very strong performance in many moments of this film, even when he is regulated to the background, although he also overacts when his character is drunk.
2. Laurence Olivier in Henry V- Olivier is great throughout the film as Henry V, He always carries himself as perfectly as possible, and reads the old words with as much power as possible.
1. James Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life- Stewart gives a great performance as George Bailey, incorporating almost everything great about his on screen persona into this single fantastic performance.
Dana Andrews in The Best Years of Our Lives
