#1 Atticus Finch. Best Movie Father Ever. A shining example of decency, dignity, and compassion. I watch this movie about once a year and cry every time.
#2 Peter (Ken Foree) Dawn of the Dead. I love him because he is a bad-ass, he cooked a nice dinner for the couple and then got the hell out, and at the last minute decided that he would rather fight than die. I would have been heartbroken had he died.
#3 Quint (Robert Shaw) Jaws. I was heartbroken when he died. Plus, his speech about the Indianapolis still gives me chills.
#4 Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr) The Wolf Man. Poor bastard. Essentially a good man, you really feel his pain as he becomes a monster.
#6 Elizabeth (Madeline Kahn) Young Frankenstein. She is the bitch that you know Elizabeth really is. I love Madeline Kahn.
#7 Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) This is Spinal Tap. Not only does he go to Eleven, you actually feel sorry for the poor guy when his best friend dumps him for a girl.
#8 Captain Renault (Claude Rains) Casablanca. Every character in this film is fantastic, but there is something about his rouge with a heart of gold...
#9 Ana (Ana Torrent) Spirit of the Beehive. My favorite film about childhood, this actress was amazing, even at 5 years old.
#10 Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) No Country for Old Men. If only for the dream he tells his wife about at the end.
I spent a whole hour thinking about this list. I am sure I will wake up a 3am tonight thinking "How could I forget....?" It beats waking up and thinking about Robinson Crusoe. I have about 150 pages left. I am going to try to power it out this week.
