Top Ten 1935

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

It’s tempting to go with Groucho once again, as A Night At The Opera is my favourite film by the Marx Brothers after Duck Soup, but instead I shall go withCharles Laughton‘s most endearing performance. As Ruggles Of Red Gap, he plays the part of the British butler who is abandoned in an American frontier only to become a successful entrepreneur with a level of heartbreaking sympathy and control that was rarely seen in his performances.

Honour Roll: Errol Flynn, Captain Blood; Fredric March, Les Miserables; Groucho Marx, A Night At The Opera; Paul Muni, The Story of Louis Pasteur
