American Film Institute's 50 Greatest Screen Legends
Part of the AFI 100 Years... series, AFI's 100 Years...100 Stars is a list of the top 50 greatest screen legends in American film history, which included 25 male and 25 female stars. The list was unveiled by the American Film Institute on June 15, 1999 in a CBS special hosted by Shirley Temple, with 50 current actors making the presentations. The American Film Institute defined an "American screen legend" as an actor or a team of actors with a significant screen presence in American feature-length (40 min) films whose screen debut occurred in or before 1950, or whose screen debut occurred after 1950 but whose death has marked a completed body of work.
As of 2014, of the fifty stars listed, only four are still alive: two men (Sidney Poitier and Kirk Douglas) and two women (Lauren Bacall and Sophia Loren). At the time the list was unveiled, Shirley Temple, Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando and Gregory Peck were also still alive.
