Who is the most famous actor/actress you have not seen in a performance?

After seeing the Best Denzel movie thread, it hit me that I've never seen anything Denzel Washington has been in.

Edit (After reading Tommy's post): For my post I was thinking of actors in my lifetime, but of course this is a DVD site so go as far back as you want.

Those two are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. Oh, and W.C. Fields and Mae West.

Clark Gable -- yeah I've never seen Gone With the Wind all the way through

As for modern movies, probably anything with the three leads in 3 Men and a Baby -- I saw Ted Danson on Becker but that's about it.

Valentino is the first one that came to mind. Of course I've seen clips in various documentaries, but never an entire movie. Mary Pickford is another silent era star I've missed. I have seen Thief of Baghdad so Douglas Fairbanks is off the list.

I was going to say Mae West, but then I remembered I've seen Myra Breckinridge (she actually has the biggest role IIRC).

It will be intersting to see who else others will name ... I've tried to see a little bit from all eras, so I've probably caught something from most of the well known stars of the past 100+ years. I can't think of anybody else really notable at the moment.
