Live Poll: Favorite Gene Hackman Movie

There's no specific word to describe the talent of Gene Hackman, he could be intimidating and funny, authoritarian and easy-going, evil and goofy, suave and scary... he wasn't a man of contradictions or a man of thousand faces but he had quite a presence, he was a natural and he's still... one "hack" of a man!

In homage to the legendary actor who retired too soon, here's a list of his most memorable roles and performances (small bits or cameos not included).

Which of these Gene Hackman movies is your personal favorite?

Where's Scarecrow? I can't vote without Scarecrow!

If I had a personal Top 5 Favorite Hackman movies, Scarecrow would be there, too. 
If I had a Top 3 Favorite Hackman performance, it would be there, too.
I can't forgive myself, I was so busy snooping in his page in search of "fillers" that I didn't even realize I overlooked one of the most previous gems of the 70s, a Golden Palm winner at that.

I don't think I can replace a poster with another now that the poll went live, I'll probably add a text in the last option to say that it stands for "another not listed film" (fittingly, the last listed movie is "Another Woman")

Just waiting for a confirmation that I can't change an option and I'll fix this horrendous mistake.

'The Chamber' is missing, so I won't vote.

Okay this is not aimed at you directly because I had a similar comment (see above). But how about just saying:

"I wish there was movie so-and-so so I could vote for it, since it's not in the list, I can't vote"

Didn't want to hurt your feelings. I'm still a little distracted about the hot weather. Yesterday it was 10°C down, today it's 4°C up again and it will rise again next days. But I guess the peak of the heat has passed. Thank you for putting it on the list. :D  So I will vote tomorrow. By the way - great idea! I love Gene Hackman's permances, he had real great moments in cinema. Congratulations for the poll going online ! :D

I can understand how environmental factors can affect our judgment but same went with me... I mean, it's not like you called me an idiot or something, so I was being a bit over-sensitive :) Cheers, have a nice pink wine (rosé) it's perfect with the hot weather.
