I've watched his supposedly two best movies Sargent York and High Noon and his others which were truly bombs. He has no acting skills at all, he delivers lines as flat as a 2x4, no facial expressions.... What gives? How did he ever win Academy Awards? Was the competition back then that inconsequential?
Dean's two main films, Giant and Rebel without a Cause, he's a method actor but is the same person in each film. Nothing to really distinguish one role from another.
I've also been re-examing Brando's films, On the Waterfront (masterpeice with Rod Steiger), One Eyed Jacks, Last Tango in Paris, Godfather, Apocalypse Now. He is the epitomy of method acting and IMHO was miles ahead of anyone then or now.
