Good math. Could maybe be added to the equation:
Conrad Veidt in Man who Laughs, James Cagney in White Heat, Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter, Christopher Lee in Wicker Man, Malcolm McDowell in Clockwork Orange, John Cassavetes, John Cazale, young Donald Sutherland and Jack Nicholson in The Shining.
