An Affair to Remember ...Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, the most elegant and sophisticated couple ever to grace the screen.

On the other side of the ledger.
Jaws....Robert Shaw.

Harrison Ford -- Indiana Jones

Bryan Cranston -- Walter White

The leads in Caddyshack -- Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Ted Knight...who was just incredible.

And my all time favorite...Peter Falk -- Lt. Columbo

And like DrawTheLine said, Robert Shaw in Jaws. No one else could have done that and make it so natural, so lived in.
One of my favorite movies of all time, and such a great scene. I agree that no one could really deliver that scene Shaw did. He was actually drunk on the set when they filmed the scene, for the sake of realism.

My serious contribution is Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid movies.
