Though I love Jodorowsky (the director) and the movie El Topo, I don't know how I feel about giving young Brontis the prize for favourite actor that year, considering his performance consists of little more than standing around naked and expressionless.

But the only other film I can think of from that year is Eyewitness, and as Zab hinted, Mark Lester is not exactly the most convincing actor. Nevertheless, I'd be inclined to go with him over Brontis, just because he had a more substantial role and I think he deserves extra points for the effort.

Two movies I haven't seen which might change my pick: The Go-Between and Abel, My Brother.

1969: Miguel Alejandro in Popi. But I have not yet seen L'Enfant sauvage or Kes.

I haven't seen El Topo yet so I can't break the tie, instead I'll complicate things more by offering up Dominic Guard in The Go-Between. Abel twoj brat is one of the films I'd most like to see that I haven't. I suspect Filip Lobodzinski might take over my vote should I ever find a subbed copy of this movie to watch.

For 1969 I would have selected David Bradley in Kes over Teddy Eccles in My Side of the Mountain.

1968 gotta go with Jack Wild in Oliver!

Grin That's funny but true. He didn't have much to do.

I also would go with Miguel Alejandro in Popi. Of course there are always movies I haven't seen in any given year, but of those I have seen for 1969, Miguel wins easily. He was a good, convincing actor. Has anyone ever seen the other movie he made, The Last Valley?

I'm not going to have anything more to contribute until we get to 1963 or so. Sorry. Lots of movies I want to see, though.

One of these days I'm going to get to The Hostage, since it's available at Netflix. I take it you recommend the movie Hosenhaus?

1964
Very easy choice, one of my all time favourites:
Didier Haudepin in "This special friendship"

------------------------------------------------------------------------


Backtracking:

1975
Jackie Earl Haley in "Day of the locust" gave the most memorable performance.

My favourite however was the adorable Sven Grothe in  "Flowers for the Man in the Moon" an  East-German movie,
followed by Jeffrey Lynas in  "Lies my father told me",
Richard Constantini  and Paul-Eric Shulmann in "Un sac de billes",
Christian Juttner in "The Boy who talked to badgers",
Ike Eisenmann in "Escape to Witch Mountain"
Chris Rebello in "Jaws"
Other favourites that year included Leif Garrett in anything and Lee Montgomery.

1974
Best performance: Alfred Lutter  in "Alice doesn't live here anymore".
John Sutherland in Montreal Main was also very cool
Michael J Wixted was probably my favourite in 1974, as he was a busy actor that year. One of the things he was in was QBVII, which I'd love to see again.
Another favourite peddling his wares around that time was the very cute Leif Garrett.

1973
Best performances in 1973 by far were as Zab says, by girls, Tatum O'Neal and Linda Blair   Smiley
However, disregarding them, I'd choose
Brandon Cruz in The going up of David Lev" as my favourite,
unfortunately I haven't seen that movie since then.

Runner up is  Clay O’Brien who was appealing in "One little Indian"
followed by more recent inclusions:
Ulf Hasseltorp in Den Vita Stenen
Jan Ohlsson in "Emil and the piglet"
César Chauveau in "Le Pélican"
I also remember Richard Beaumont  in "Digby the Biggest Dog in the World", Richard was very cute,
and there was Johhny Doran in an earlier version of From the mixed up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.


1972
Best performance and favourite as well is Andrea Balestri in  "Avventure di Pinocchio"
followed by:
Chris and Martin Udvarnoky in "The Other"
Kevin Hooks in "Sounder"
Gabi Otterman  in "I love you Rosa"
Lee Montgomery in "Ben" and  "Pete 'n' Tillie"

1971
Best movie performance, Benoît Ferreux in "Murmur of the heart"
Favourite was Roderic Noble in "Nicholas and Alexandra"
Best TV performance and TV favourite was Brandon Cruz  in "The courtship of Eddie's father"
Other semi-notables that year were:
Peter Ostrum in "Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory"
Mark Lester in "Who Slew Auntie Roo"
Lee Montgomery  in  "The Harness" and "Million dollar duck"
Ian Weighill, Roy Smart in "Bedknobs and broomsticks"
and for his striking looks, Bjorn Andressen in "Death in Venice"
Last but not least the adorable Trent Lehman  in 'Nanny and the professor", the only reason to watch that show.


1970
Very easy choice for best performance:  Dominic Guard in "The Go-between"
however my favourite was easily Brandon Cruz  in "The courtship of Eddie's father" on TV.

1969
Another easy choice for best performance:  David Bradley in "Kes"
followed by Jean-Pierre Cargol in "The Wild Child"
Favourites were:
Brook Fuller in "The Christmas tree"            
Teddy Eccles in  "My side of the mountain"
Mauro Gravina  in "Cuore di mamma"
Miguel Alejandro and Reuben Figueroa in "Popi"
Jean-Francois Maurin in "Secret World"

1968
Best performance" Jack Wild in "Oliver"
runner up: Mark Lester in "Oliver"
However I must take another look at Michel Terrazon in "L'enfance nue" for a possibly revised opinion.
Others of note:
Warren Raum and Ryp Siani had a certain appeal in "Robby"
and Barnaby Shaw was worth a look in "House of Cards"

1967
Best performance: Alain Cohen in "The old man and the boy"
however Gerald Michenaud was probably my favourite around that time.
others I liked Billy Mumy, Manuel Padilla, Butch Patrick & Darby Hinton

1966
Best performance: Stefano Colagrande in Incompreso
runner up:  Jorgen Lindstrom in "Nattlek"
other favourites:
Gerald Michenaud in "Big hand for the little lady"
Pat Cardi  in "And now Miguel"
William Dix  in "Doctor Doolittle"
Robert Duncan in "Eye of the Devil"
Fraser MacIntosh in The boy cried murder"


1965
Best performance and favourite: William Dix in "The Nanny"
runner up: Billy Mumy in "Dear Brigette"
also:
Diego Puente in "Crónica de un niño solo"
Edward Albert in "The fool killer"
Martin Amis  and  Jeffrey Chandler in "High Wind in Jamaica"

Agreed, although for some reason it was not on my list. Gotta fix that.

For 1963, I pick:

the entire cast of Lord of the Flies.

Well, if I can only pick one, I'd probably go with James Aubrey.
