American Film Institute's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends

Guess the 25 male and 25 female actors the American Film Institute deemed the greatest.
This is only for the "Golden Age" of Hollywood, so the actor's film debut must have been in or before 1950, or their death (by 1999) has marked a completed body of work.
One of each actor's most famous movies is given as a hint.
Some actors were not born American, but appeared in many American movies and lived in the US.
You can use just last names for all except the two pairs of actors who share the same surname.
