That's certainly an impressive list. I've always thought the Ingrid Bergman is the actor to beat in terms of the range and quality of first-rank auteurs she worked with: Hitchcock, Rossellini, Renoir, Bergman, Cukor, Minnelli - plus the not-to-be-sniffed-at Molander, Curtiz, McCarey, Milestone, Wicki and Lumet. Ryan's resume doesn't have the international breadth of Bergman's, but there are arguably more great films (and great performances) in there.tryavna wrote:It's my considered opinion that Ryan is one of those few actors who never gave a bad performance, though he certainly appeared in a few bad movies. I remember reading somewhere -- can't remember where now -- that Ryan probably worked with more auteurs than any other American actor: Anthony Mann, Nick Ray, Jean Renoir, Joseph Losey, Fritz Lang, Sam Peckinpah, Sam Fuller, Robert Aldrich, Jacques Tourneur, etc.
