89. Elizabeth Russell





Exotic-looking and eternally mysterious Russell is best known for her roles in Val Lewton's 1940's series of classic b-film horrors. Russell had small to starring roles in most of them, including CAT PEOPLE, CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE, BEDLAM, and THE 7TH VICTIM. Russell's image appeared in THE UNIVITED (1944) as the portrait and the ghost(?) Mary Meredith and she had a major supporting role in Universal's 'Inner Sanctum' mystery WEIRD WOMAN.

Most appropriate for this site, though, Russell played Bela Lugosi's ancient wife Countess Lorenz who needed the 'gland fluids' of blushing brides to stay young in THE CORPSE VANISHES.

The scenes where Russell (in old age makeup) screeches and whines at Lugosi to hurry up and extract the fluid from the brides are some of the finest in poverty row horror history!

Elizabeth Russell certainly has a place on any 'Top 10 Favorite Actresses' list I'd ever make.




This is an interesting addition.....and a revelation to me! I remeber her from the CORPSE VANISHES....and I have seen the Lewton films...but never equated the actresses! Karma for a revelation (for me at least!)  Smile

91. Roddy McDowall






Child star at MGM, 60's & 70's Disney movies, APES series, ARNOLD, FRIGHT NIGHT 1 & 2, voice of V.I.N.CENT in THE BLACK HOLE,  LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, IT!, The Bookworm on TV's Batman, etc. etc.

He was the only actor in the world who could emote with his hairline.
I felt very sad the day I learned he died.

92. Jack Elam




Jack's, er, unusual looks earned him small roles playing the "heavy" in numerous films, especially oaters.  He got small roles in some huge productions like GUNFIGHT AT THE OK CORRALL and ONCE UPON THE TIME IN THE WEST, as well as a lot of TV work, but he has an impressive B-film resume as well.  Instantly recognizable, Elam showed up in WILD WEED, KISS ME DEADLY, THE GIRL IN LOVERS LANE, CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE, CANNONBALL RUN I & II, and about 1000 B-Westerns.

I remember Elam as the Frankenstein Monster in the (very) short-lived CBS sit-com Struck by Lightening.

94. Ray Milland

Another Oscar Winner (THE LOST WEEKEND) who did more than his fair share of memorable B-pics in his declining years, often working for Roger Corman.  Notable roles: PREMATURE BURIAL, PANIC IN THE YEAR ZERO, X: THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES, FROGS, and TERROR IN THE WAX MUSEUM.

Here he is acting "alongside" Rosey Grier in THE THING WITH TWO HEADS:

C'mon guys, don't give up now, there are so many more! 

95. GEOFFREY LEWIS who is in one of my favorites, BAD COMPANY (1972) but was reminded of because 33 years later is in THE DEVIL'S REJECTS.  Aside from a ton of TV work like MOON OF THE WOLF and SALEM'S LOT, he's also in THE CULPEPPER CATTLE CO., HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT, MACON COUNTY LINE, SMILE, THE RETURN OF A MAN CALLED HORSE, NIGHT OF THE COMET, LUST IN THE DUST...

Hard to find pix online, here's a link to his IMDB page with their ungrab-able pix:

Hmm I have a quick list I jotted down with close to 20 more names on it and that's just off the top of my head (sure there's even more than that though, obviously they all can't make the 100 list although personally I'd like to see us expand this thread beyond that limit).

96. DONALD PLEASANCE: Actually I'm amazed he isn't already listed. Aside from being most famous for his Dr. Sam Loomis role, Pleasance was the Man with the Power on The Outer Limits, was William Hare in THE FLESH AND THE FIENDS, was the President in ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, Blofeld in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, Father Loomis in PRINCE OF DARKNESS, SEN in THX-1138, Professor John McGregor in PHENOMENA and that's just the tip of the iceberg. He also appeared in the 1956 version of 1984, CIRCUS OF HORRORS, THE HANDS OF ORLAC (1960), EYE OF THE DEVIL, FANTASTIC VOYAGE, FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE, TALES THAT WITNESS MADNESS, HOUSE OF THE DAMNED, THE MUTATIONS, THE DEVIL WITHIN HER, THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (1975), ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN, JOURNEY INTO FEAR, LAND OF THE MINOTAUR, THE UNCANNY, TELEFON, NIGHT CREATURE, GOLD OF THE AMAZON WOMEN, DRACULA (1979), THE MONSTER CLUB, THE PUMA MAN, ALONE IN THE DARK, WARRIOR OF THE LOST WORLD, THE TREASURE OF THE AMAZON, WARRIOR QUEEN, THE HOUSE OF USHER (1980), VAMPIRE IN VENICE, TEN LITTLE INDIANS (1989), BURIED ALIVE (1990) not to mention appearances on "The Ray Bradbury Theater", "The Twilight Zone", "The Fugitive", "The Defenders", "Danger Man" and "One Step Beyond" and even more.

97. Marjoe Gortner.  Amazing back story: he was raised from a youth to be an evangelical scam artist.  His conscience got to him, and in his farewell tour to the tent-revival circuit he invited a camera crew along to document his performance, including honestly showing how he scammed his parishioners out of their paychecks.  He parlayed this film experience into a B-movie career, appering in THE FOOD OF THE GODS, VIVA KNIEVEL!, STARCRASH, MAUSOLEUM, JUNGLE WARRIORS and HELLHOLE, among others.
