Three way tie between said two and The Eastwood for me. God, get them all in a film together! I don't care what the medical bills would be in order to pay for Cushings resurection!

I might have said that once upon a time, as a young lad. But over time, as I've seen more of their respective work, Cushing always beats out Lee for me. Especially the way in recent years that Lee has gone on record trashing Hammer films - the company that effectively made him a star. He lacks Cushings' humility in that regard. Cushing never disowned his films and he really did enjoy being a horror star.

I think i have to say, Vincent Price but Peter Cushing is a very close second. Cushing just has this conviction about him that makes him so cool in anything he does.

Always prefered Cushing to Lee, Cushing always gives a fine performance whatever the material whereas Lee wouldn't even say the lines if they didn't agree with him, take the later Dracula films for example.
I like Lee and he's made some great films but he is a bit up himself.

My other absolute favourite is Boris Karloff, another actor who would always give a great performance.
Vincent Price is great but is sometimes a little too over the top.
Peter Lorre was great in M and Mad Love.

I love Donald Pleasance as well, great actor in general and should have done even more horror.
Lugosi had his moments too but kind of shot himself in the foot by doing so many bad films. Same with Lon chaney Jr.(lived under the shadow of his old man).

On the female front it's Barbara Steele all the way for me.
