Excellence in Film

It struck me the other day that I've never seen a poor performance by:
  • Claude Rains
  • Katherine Hepburn
  • Louis Calhern
  • Fred MacMurray
  • Audrey Hepburn
  • Edward G. Robinson
  • Alec Guinness
  • Robert Duvall
  • Spencer Tracy
  • Sidney Poitier
  • Grace Kelly
  • George C. Scott
Any other nominees?

I agree, but is that due to sample bias? AMC, TMC, Netflix, etc. are much less likely to show a poor movie than one of good quality (or at least I'd like to think so.)

Regardless - clearly they were all journeymen at their craft.
