Default Favorite Classic Horror Actor

I've recently begun watching a buncha classic horror flicks that I got on a 4 DVD set. Its 20 films. It got me thinking about which of the classic actors or actresses was my favorite. I love Vincent Price, he is so freakin creepy. What about you guys? Who are your favorite classic horror actors/actresses?

Bela Lugosi

That man can sell any role he's in no matter how lame the script is and no matter how screwed up he was.

True artist when it comes to acting

Conrad Veidt - mainly for his performances in The Man Who Laughs (which inspired The Joker) and The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.

Bela Lugosi - fantastic actor, loved him in Dracula, Son of Frankenstein, Bride of the Monster, Glen or Glenda... just so memorable in every role.

Edward Van Sloan - again, a style of acting you don't see anymore... he mostly played doctor-types.

Dwight Frye - the greatest Renfield ever.

Max Schreck is awesome too but I only know him from Nosferatu.

Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing as well.

I like Vincent Price too but never been a huge fan.

Peter Cushing for mainly shallow reasons. I've always found him incredibly attractive even at an old age.

I also love Ingrid Pitt. She's a right legend.
