Here are ten actors, obviously all from the old school, that I am always interested in looking at.  I know there are others, but I went for a right-outta-my-ass list of those that came to mind, all of whom I think are so great they rise above sometimes lousy material: 
CLAUDE RAINS 
ERROL FLYNN
CLARK GABLE 
BARBARA STANWYCK
WILLIAM POWELL 
EDWARD G. ROBINSON 
JAMES CAGNEY 
BETTE DAVIS 
VIVIEN LEIGH
JOAN CRAWFORD

Boris Karloff
Jackie Chan
Bruce Lee
Clint Eastwood
Linnea Quigley (because I know nudity is coming  Smile)
Barbara Steele
Mamie van Doren
Warren Oates
Orson Welles
John Cleese

Off the top of my head. I could probably come up with ten more who are equally charismatic but this is a decent start.

I could make a good list out of only actors who already appear on others' lists:

Vincent Price
Peter Lorre
Klaus Kinski
Steve Buscemi
Toshiro Mifune
Peter Sellers
John Cusak
Christoph Walz
Bette Davis
Edward G. Robinson

It's one thing to say, 'I wonder what it would look like if a puppet with a dentist's drill in his head ran straight at your brain and just drilled his way right through.' But it's another, entirely DIFFERENT thing when you say 'What would the same thing look like if you were eight inches high so all you could see was this enormous blood-spouting brain?'"-Joe Bob on PUPPET MASTER

Well, he is retired.....I'm defining old-school as people who started their careers before I was born (because it all begins & ends with me, don't you know  Twirling)

Interesting lists, which I almost entirely can relate to.  Some actors come across like old friends, or old acquaintances you admire but may not like, or... family. 

I'm going to try for 10 more, meaning I'm going to stop and watch if I can and hate it if I can't: 
FREDRIC MARCH 
KIM NOVAK
STEVE McQUEEN
WALTER MATTHAU
MARCELLO MASTROIANNI
JOHN WAYNE
VICTOR MATURE
FINLAY CURRIE
CLAIRE TREVOR
ALAN MOWBRAY
 

That was easy!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
