Actor/Actress of 1960s?

I have to draw the portrait of an actor or actress that could represent (or lets say was the most famous or the best actor of) the 1960s.

in topten reviews the first was Julie Andrews (personally I prefer her too)

so do you think she would be a good choice? also if you recommend someone else (no personal preferences....I want someone who had top ratings and stuff like that) I'll be happy.

    I'm not sure if she would be the most famous or best actor of the entire decade, but she was (and is) definitely a star. She is also very pretty, so why not draw her?

    For fun I looked up who won Best Actor and Best Actress Oscars for that time (left off the nominees for space)

    Actresses

    1960--Elizabeth Taylor

    1961-Sophia Loren

    1962-Anne Bancroft

    1963--Patricia Neal

    1964--Julie Andrews

    1965--Julie Christie

    1966--Elizabeth Taylor (again)

    1967--Katharine Hepburn

    1968--Tie between Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand

    1969--Maggie Smith

    Best Actor

    1960-Burt Lancaster

    1961-Maxmillan Schell

    1962-Gregory Peck

    1963--Sidney Poitier

    1964--Rex Harrison

    1965--Lee Marvin

    1966-Paul Scofield

    1967--Rod Steiger

    1968--Cliff Robertson

    1969--John Wayne

    Of course the Academy people and the public might have differed on which actors and actresses they liked the best.

    In the 1960's there were women like Jane Fonda, Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, Gina Lollabrigida, Diana Dors, Natalie Wood, Audrey Hepburn, Patty Duke, Paula Prentisss

    Among the men there were Tony Curtis, Sean Connery, Steve McQueen, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Michael Caine, Albert Finney, Kirk Douglas (Michael Douglas' father)

    Even a pre-Jello pudding Bill Cosby can be found in the 1960's

    Just too many to name.

    Yes, Julie Andrews is a good choice. Another choice would be Audrey Hepburn.
