The Leading Ladies of the 1970's (redux)

The Leading Ladies of the 1970's! - That is right, I am revisiting hence the redux the list's thus far made for the leading ladies and men of each decade. A total of only 4 does not allow us to fairly capture the actors from around the globe that truly left a mark in that particular decade. With a lot of thought a pain staking hours I have finally came up with the leading lists for each decade and now bringing you the COMPLETE LIST of the ladies of the 1970's who simply were in my book the definition of that decade. Enjoy and left me know via comments your thoughts...perhaps you agree or disagree and have leading ladies that potentially belong to the "Runner's Up List."

Note: The actors that were originally part of each list are not being edited and removed (they are there for a reason!).

 The eight top leading ladies deemed as the defining women of the 1970's are:

Faye Dunaway, Liv Ullman, Diane Keaton, Glenda Jackson, Gena Rowlands, Ellen Burstyn, Hanna Schygulla, & Jane Fonda. 

These leading ladies truly hit the silver screen in big ways with major roles in motion pictucres during the 1970's.

"Love Those Classic Movies!" will highlight in articles each leading lady as being the definition of what made the 1970's a great decade for films.
