In the movie business there are great actors and great directors; when two of these tremendously talented people come together to make a film, the result is often a classic. When a great actor/director team continues to pair up and make films, the result is a legend.

From Scorcese & De Niro to Burton & Depp, there’s no denying that certain actor/director teams have a unsaid spark between them (the director able to coax the best performance from the actor and he in turn being able to translate a director’s vision into that stellar performance). Point is: there are some truly great director/actor combos out there.

    Except number 11 is wrong… neither Sergio Leone or Clint Eastwood were directing or acting in either God Father or Apocalypse Now.. Maybe you meant to say Francis Coppola and Marlon Brando…
