Hollywood’s Greatest: Then and Now – Christopher Plummer

After paying tribute to some of the greatest award-winning films to ever hit the big screen, it’s only fair to pay tribute to some of the greatest Classic Movie actors and actresses who are still living and working today. These living legends will forever be idolized by today’s upcoming actors and actresses, as they paved the way for everyone else to follow. And what better way to begin this list then with an actor who just won his first Academy Award this year? That’s right. Some of you know him as Captain Von Trapp. Me? I know him as Charles Muntz. I know him as Leo Tolstoy. I know him as Hal Fields. But we all know him as the legendary — Christopher Plummer
