1930s and 1950s Finales! 2016 Favorite Classic Movie Actor Tournament!

Well, what a strange and wonderful thing the tournament has been so far. The list of actors who have bitten the dust reads like the Mt. Rushmore of acting — Marlon Brando, Alec Guinness, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, Charles Laughton, and on and on. But plenty of good ones left!

Voting in this part of round two runs until lunchtime Friday. To vote in the 1940s and 1960s brackets, click here to head on over to All Good Things.

2016 Favorite Classic Movie Actor Tournament

As you may recall, we here at the Monkey annually participate in a favorite classic movie actress tournament hosted by our good pal Monty over at All Good Things. Back in 2013, he also ran a favorite actor tournament, with Cary Grant emerging as the winner from a field of 64.

Well, Monty is back at it and this time he's asked me to help out. Starting on Father's Day, I'm going to co-host the 2016 Favorite Classic Movie Actor Tournament. I'll be handling my two favorite decades, the 1930s and 1950s brackets, he'll take his favorites, the 1940s and 1960s.

Should be fun!

Here are the match-ups, with half starting on June 19, the other half on June 22.

I'll be serving up additional promotional posters in the coming days — collect em all!
