“Cinema is truth at 24 frames per second,” so says Jean-Luc Godard. Movies are the only form of art that appeal to everyone. So it is no wonder that people starring in movies have a greater fan following than people connected with other forms of art. Some movie stars have become legends through their acting skills, while some are regarded for their stunningly beautiful looks. Since the development of silent films some actors have given such stunning performances throughout their career that they have elevated to the position of film icons. Having film stars on canvas is becoming a very popular form of modern art and here we round up some of the most sought after at CanvasDesign.co.uk
Humphrey Bogart is generally considered to the most iconic and diverse actor in English language films. Iconic films such as The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca are the reason why he is considered by the American Film Institute as greatest male actor in the history of male cinema.
Katharine Hepburn is generally considered to the most iconic actress in films. In addition to her diverse film roles, her fierce and independent persona led her to be considered one of the greatest female film stars. Many of their contemporaries are also considered to be great actors and film icons.
Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman are such examples. Bergman acted in Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart and in Notorious, another iconic film, with Cary Grant. In addition to being a film icon, Audrey Hepburn is also considered as a fashion icon. She is also regarded by some to be one of the most naturally beautiful women of all time.
In recent years, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Leonardo Di Caprio and Tom Cruise are considered among the top rated film stars and their acting abilities are far superior to most others. Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino are also considered to be important figures in the film industry. The Godfather and its sequels are one of the most famous and iconic films of the recent era. Sean Connery is also a major English actor who has influenced the film industry and acting as a whole. The first on-screen James Bond, Connery is considered the greatest Scotsman alive.
Any article on iconic film stars without the mention of Charlie Chaplin is incomplete. Charles Chaplin is one the most famous and iconic film stars on canvas of the silent film era. He became a worldwide icon through his film ‘The Tramp’ and is considered one of the greatest comedians of all time.
