ABC-TV and People magazine surveyed over a half million people to find out the most popular movie characters of all time. Counting down from #5 the winners were Indiana Jones, Hannibal Lecter, Scarlett O’Hara, James Bond and at #1, Forrest Gump.
- What? No Jimmy Carrey and Jeff Daniels from “Dumb and Dumber?”
- I can’t believe my two favorites weren’t in the top 5: Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd!
The same survey asked people to name their all-time favorite film: The winner? “Gone With the Wind”.
- Kwame Kilpatrick voted for “Escape From Alcatraz”.
