Alternate Best Actor 1937: Results

5. Claude Rains in They Won't Forget- Rains does his best and puts a great deal of effort in his performance, but his character unfortunately is paper thin.

 Best Scene: Griffin rabble rouses the courtroom.
4. Victor Moore in Make Way For Tomorrow- Moore gives a moving quiet performance of a man who witnesses society pass him by.

Best Scene: "Husband and Wife say goodbye for the last time".
2 . Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in Way Out West- There is no reason to separate them as together they create the greatest comedy duo ever, and show well there unique talent together in this film. ( In the overall rank I merely put them in alphabetical order.)

Best Scene: "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine".
1. Cary Grant in The Awful Truth- Grant gives an entertaining and enjoyable performance that is a terrific example of his abilities as the lead of a romantic comedy.

RatedRStar: Yes I will be mixing them up, in fact I was thinking of doing one right now, but I could not settle on a particular year to do.

Yay for Grant!

Can't wait for 1974. Hackman gives one of my favorite performances ever.

In the truth of a single platter this isn't too much of an inconvenience however in the situation of multi-platter disks
this can become a major issue due to the increased probability of incorrect alignment between the
platters. If the file size exceeds the free space, it appears for the next free space chunk and stores the remainder part there.
Data can restore from XP hard disk when FAT & NTFS partitions are formatted.

Where is Humphrey Bogart in Black Legion. That was the best performance of the Year.
