  After the last few posts, this may seem sexest (sorry ladies).Of the first top four, there isn't a problem in my mind.
1.  Boris Karloff
2.  Bela Lugosi
3.  Lon Chaney Jr.
4.  Lon Chaney
Number 5 is harder to decided on but in an homage to my wife who still thinks that Morlocs are the ugliest things around.
5.  Rob Taylor in the original "Time Machine" - not to be confussed with Bob Taylor from Ohio - lol.

Uncula
The children of the night.  What music they make!

Actually Uncula, it's Rod (with a "D") Taylor in Time Machine.  Our friend in Ohio is Robert (don't think he ever uses Bob) Taylor.  Youy may remember him from the film CAMILLE.  Oh wait, that's a different Robert Taylor.  Our Robert Taylor is the star of MARK OF THE ASTRO  ZOMBIES.  It's not to be missed...or enjoyed.  lol
