Best Actor 1946

And the Nominee Were:

James Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life

Fredric March in The Best Years of Our Lives

Larry Parks in The Jolson Story

Laurence Olivier in Henry V

Gregory Peck in The Yearling

Who do you Pick? Who Do you Predict? Will Olivier fare better than Kenneth Branagh as Henry V?

To answer your question, yes. Olivier was much better then Branagh.

Larry Parks was pretty forgettable, as was Peck.

My pick is Fredric March.

I think you'll go with Stewart. I saw March two or three years ago, and I remember he wasn't in the film so much.
