I known some similar threads have been posted, but after recently going through my movie collection after a long hiatus, I would often pick up a movie and wondered why I bought it! Because my favorite actors/actresses were in it! I guess I would scour IMDB and look up everything they were in and make some attempt to get everything they did. I think I liked the actors who had a short shelf life which made it quite easy. Here is a list of who I attempted to collect. The late list is ones who had shot careers.

#1

Michael J Fox
Molly Ringwald,
James Spader
Jon Cryer
Christina Applegate
Drew Barrymore
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Emilio Estevez
Winona Ryder
Thomas C Howell
Corey Haim (RIP)

#2

Joanna Lee
Amanda Peterson (RIP)
Amy Linker
Michael Schoeffling
Catherine Mary Stewart

Going to post more as soon as I go through more boxes. Out of all of them, I think it was Molly Ringwald who I had the most of.

Thanks Rip for placing this dangerous idea in the brain of a collector!! I kinda do this already, but not as intentional as looking up the lists on IMDB. I like the idea, but would continue to keep it specific to the 80's only. I looked up Molly Ringwald, for example...I have 8 of her movies from the 80's. *I'm a "list person", so this could get crazy.

Off hand, the handful I can think of are primarily from the action genre, so...I have most of the movies from the 80's for Chuck Norris (have to add the 70's for Chuck), Sly Stallone, and Arnold S...just checked IMDB and have approx. 15 movies for each of these guys.

Now...with the silly idea you planted in my head....GUESS I'LL HAVE TO TRACK DOWN THE REST!!!! [Wink] [Eek!] [Big Grin]

Im doing this all the time, try to collect every movie lets say up to 1993 at least.
I think Sly Stallone leads with 35 films but Linda Blair is not far behind. I have 27 films featuring my favorite Linda at the moment.
So many actors and actresses to collect but its so much fun because its in the blood [Smile]

Never have done this but if I was going to I would probably go with Chevy Chase. Currently he is probably the one who I have the most movies of.
Fletch, Fletch Lives, Funny Farm, the Vacation series, Spies Like Us, Caddyshack, Oh Heavenly Dog

A movie collection I would like to start is what I would call "the outsiders collection" from you guessed it, the Outsiders cast members in other flix. It would be a great section. Not all movies from that cast were worth owning but it would be a combination of fun movie after fun movie.

Great list, Riptide! I completely agree with Ralph Macchio and Matthew Broderick. Two great actors! Also, Laura Dern is a fantastic actress. Have you seen Mask (1985)? Her performance is great.

Chloe, I saw her in Mask. She was great, as was Stoltz and Cher. I loved Laura in Smooth Talk and Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains. Looking at my lists, yes there were some great actors and actresses there, but others I was more intrigued by their style, quirky roles and even wondering how they fared with the industry, why they had fewer roles than they should of like Ilan Mitchell Smith. There was a period there where Drew Barrymore and Winona Ryder were kind of my Betty and Veronica! Surprised they weren't cast together in a Thelma and Louise type road movie!

A mix of older and newer actors/actresses that have caught my interest over the years. A lot I'm still working on adding to my movie collection:

Veterans (pre 2000's):

Nicholas Cage
Bill Murray
Bob Hoskins
Bobcat Goldthwait
Dan Aykroyd
Bruce Campbell
Drew Barrymore
Jessica Tandy
Reese Witherspoon
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Natalie Wood
Jodie Foster
John Candy
Kathleen Turner
Keanu Reeves
Kiefer Sutherland
Kim Basinger
Robert Downey Jr
Bruce Willis
Michael Douglas
Wesley Snipes
Famke Janssen
Michael Keaton
Rebecca De Mornay
Robin Williams
Roddy Mcdowall
Gary Oldman
Natalie Portman
Brad Douriff
Christina Ricci
Sigourney Weaver
Susan Surandon
Val Kilmer

Sophie Turner
Ellen Page
Emma Stone
Chlo Moretz
Joey King


Obviously my list of younger actors/actresses is not nearly as huge as the older ones since there just aren't that many young actors I'm a huge fan of. But there are a few and this list is still growing as time goes on.

As you might expect, John Candy. I don't have the complete collection, but at least close to 3/4ths of his total output, including a few of his rarer early Canadian productions.

Mask is a great movie! I think Laura Dern is brilliant in it. And so was Eric Stoltz and Cher.

I always wondered why Ilan Mitchell-Smith didn't get more roles. He was great in The Wild Life and Weird Science.

A friend of mine met Ilan Mitchell-Smith at a convention. He said that he gave up acting to be a professor of medieval literature because the parts just weren't coming his way. The stuff he got offered was like "rapist on Silk Stockings." (I looked it up. Silk Stockings was indeed his last acting credit.) Too bad. It's sometimes a coin flip as to who gets the breaks and who doesn't.

I have several actors that I collect "most" of their films (I have half of Tom Cruise and Sylvester Stallone). But only two have I managed to add every single title of theirs to my collection. And they are Nicolas Cage and Steven Seagal.

The only thing of Nicolas Cage I do not have is his first IMDB credit. The made-for-TV movie Best of Times. It's only available on YouTube. I'm currently working on upgrading the DVD stuff to blu-ray. A few of his movies have never been released to DVD so I own those either on VHS or Laserdisc. The ones that come to mind are Never on Tuesday, which I have on VHS, and Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Brokenhearted which I have on Laserdisc, sealed no less. I think the most I paid for any one movie of his was Zandalee on DVD. That one set me back $30. Everything else was relatively easy to find with the exception of Time to Kill. Hard to find but not necessarily expensive.

On top of owning all of the Nic Cage movies, I have most of the soundtracks as well (if there's one available). What can I say, I'm Nic obsessed, haha!

Thanks for that bit of information, Crash! I wondered whether he gave up acting or not. He was a great actor, though! [Smile]

Probably Ilan's best role was in 'The Chocolate War':

You do realise that you lose several hundred cool points for putting Nicholas Cage at the top of your list, don't you? [Smile]
