These are considered to be the Greatest Actresses in film based on talent, versatility, influence, characterization, charisma, and success in the movie business. (The actors are followed by a movie that showcases their talent.) How many of these great movies have you seen?

I remember seeing only 21 of these films. :(
Some titles were truncated:
1 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
14 - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
16 - Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
77 - All The King's Men
Wow. Only 9 actresses and 8 films for me. And I’m counting the ones I’ve seen any part of. Of course, most of these movies are “all talk no action” films. You want to keep my interest there needs to be some gunplay or blow up a car once in a while.
Rochelle, Rochelle. The story of a young girl’s strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
Though I liked the stage version with Bette Midler better.
I saw 31. Lots of great actresses but most of them I didn’t see in whatever movie was listed for them.
Never watched any of the 5 you listed............
I did not so much disagree with the choice of actresses as what they considered their best movies.
When I say “American Beauty” I knew the list was garbage.
say should have been saw but most probably figured that out.
Hey Henkster, If you don’t want the females on here throwing you their house keys all of the time, you should probably not be letting on that you are one of the great romantics of all time...
No Irene Dunne?
No Lillian Gish?
Wow, I need a life. I’ve seen 72 of them.
I’ve seen at least 86 of the 100.
You mean the ladies don’t go for that? Huh...I never would have guessed.
I was really impressed with Greta Garbo. I saw her in a silent and what she could do with her eyes has never been forgotten by this viewer. She looked this man up and down and dismissed him all with her eyes.
I agree with a lot of the actresses being superb...
But more than half of the ones (that I have seen that particular movie), I disagree that the movies picked were their best roles.
Many of these movies are not the actress’s best. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is not even close to Hepburn’s best.
In GWCTD, Beah Richards gave a superb performance as Mrs. Prentice. Also really enjoyed the innocent Katharine Houghton as Joey Drayton. Those orange pants sure showed off her great 22 year old figure, too.

Was the understudy for the play adaptation of, Rochelle, Rochelle. The story of a young girls strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
