These are the actors who had the best performances in the 1930s. I'm not counting Charlie Chaplin, on account of his being a genre and practically an art form unto himself.
The term "screwball comedy" gets applied rather loosely, a lot of movies have screwball elements, but here's my list of the true pillars of the genre, in order of proto-typicality.
Mellowest, most pleasant, attractive voices in movies. Admittedly slanted towards old movies, just because I'm not a practiced brainstormer when it comes to modern actors.
