The Trouble With Democracy ...., 14 August 2004
Author: Theo Robertson from Isle Of Bute, Scotland

.... Is that any idiot can cast a vote . Take THE 100 GREATEST MOVIE STARS OF ALL TIME yet another list show from Channel 4 . If we`re talking about movie stars we`re talking about movie stars from all eras of cinema , people like Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy , Spencer Tracy and Kirk Douglas none of whom actually appeared in the top 100 list

That`s bad enough but Ewan McGregor landed at number 9 ! What an actor who is only convincing playing an Edinburgh junkie is the 9th greatest movie star ever ! I`d thought maybe STAR WAR fans had stuffed the poll but that theory collapsed when I realised Alec Guiness didn`t make the list . If McGregor deserves to be number 9 then the entire cast of EASTENDERS deserve to be in the top 50 somewhere . Kevin Spacey landed at the lofty heights of number 4 , another travesty .

I will give some of the voters credit for NOT voting DeNiro ( Number 2 ) as the greatest ever movie star . Bob has shamefully let himself down by continually appearing in B movies for many years whilst the winner of the poll Al Pacino does give the impression he has some standards when it comes to appearing in films

A very flawed list and I`m getting really fed up with these type of shows from Channel 4 . That`s why I didn`t vote in their meaningless poll
