But for us, the real draw of this movie might be its leading man, Tom Hanks. The Spencer Tracy of his era, Hanks places amongst the top Hollywood stars of any era. Eminently likeable, tremendously charismatic and one of the most genuinely gifted performers in show business, Hanks has left a trail of Oscar-winning and Oscar-worthy performances in his wake.
