John Wayne - The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965)
Who can forget one of Hollywood's greatest moments? John Wayne as a centurion looks up at the Cross and drawls in broadest Texan: 'Truly this man was the son of God'.
Natalie Wood - Gypsy (1962)

Van Dyke's pitiful attempt at a Cockney accent still reduces
audiences to hysterical laughter more than 30 years after the release of this children's classic.
