Description by OLDIES.com:
In 100 Great Film Performances You Should Remember - But Probably Don't, author John DiLeo ventures beyond the obvious, paying tribute to a collection of acting feats that made priceless but often underappreciated contributions to the art of screen acting. So, no Scarlett O'Hara, Michael Corleone, or Margo Channing here. But you will find Vivien Leigh, Al Pacino, and Bette Davis in outstanding performances that have been overshadowed by their signature roles. From Lillian Gish in Way Down East (1920) to Renee Zellweger in Nurse Betty (2000), DiLeo takes movie fans on an unpredictable ride through film history, covering eight decades, showcasing a variety of genres and performing styles, and whetting your appetite to see all one hundred of these superb, eye-opening performances, even if you saw them before--because you really didn't.
