Every one of them is overrated and overpaid. None will stand up the the golden age actors.

Also, I suspect that the answer might be different if the dollar was adjusted for its value at the time. A dollar now is not worth much more than a penny back in earlier movie days.

So, what about actors like John Wayne, Danny Kaye, or Humphrey Bogart? Adjusted for changing conditions and especially for degradation of the currency.

Most of those actors have their best days behind them. When was the last time John Travolta or Harrison Ford were reasons to go see a movie. Robert Downey Jr should be on that list. At least of his movies have come close to a billion dollars each.

Ranking actors on the basis of their films’ gross is heavily weighted to these more modern days, when movies have become big, big business.

Most of the best actors in film history were featured in earlier days - in black and white films and the early days of color.

They may not have “grossed” as much, but their work was better and far more enduring, IMO.

Population growth and inflation biases such rankings to the more current crop of actors.

George C. Scott. One of the best ever. Not even a mention.
