The Leading Men of the 1970's! (redux)

The Leading Men 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 gentlemen 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 men 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 men deemed as the defining actors of the 1970's are:

Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, Charles Bronson, Dustin Hoffman,  Robert De Niro, & Maximilian Schell.
