Top Ten 1969

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

There’s plenty of reason in thinking that Helmut Berger didn’t make it on talent. The man was supremely gorgeous, and his relationship status with Luchino Visconti guaranteed him employment in the Italian maestro’s films regardless of his abilities. You gotta hand it to the guy, though, because he really had some acting mojo going on, the best of it on display as the corrupt, Nazi-loving cross-dressing sadistic son of a wealthy industrialist family in Visconti’s fascinating, near-fantasy interpretation of World War II, The Damned.

Honour Roll:  Marlon Brando, Burn!; Richard Burton, Anne Of The Thousand Days; Jon Voight, Midnight Cowboy; John Wayne, True Grit
