First round comes from the horror movie genre. Here are your two performers:

11. A horror classic.

Also had Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) in a supporting role.

This is my favorite ghost film, although it really is more of a psychological drama than anything else, as is the way Shirley Jackson wrote her original novel.

The remake sucked!

And Claire Bloom rocks in this film.

I was in Jr. High when this came out. Some friends and I went to see it one night. It was one scary ride home after dark on my bicycle and didn't sleep well that night.

8. A Golden Age of Horror.

The classic horror films made by Universal in the 1930s and early 40s whetted the public's appetite for more of the genre. The other studios provided a steady stream of vampires, zombies and haunted houses.

Some of the finest actors joined in the fun appearing in these very popular films. Actors like Lionel Barrymore, Fredric March, Basil Rathbone and, here, Charles Laughton.

Top - Charles Laughton plays the mad doctor in this telling of the Dr Moreau tale.

Bottom - Bela Lugosi is dependably spooky as the "Sayer of the Law".

Movie - Island of Lost Souls (1932)

That same year Laughton appeared with Boris Karloff in The Old, Dark House (1932).
