9 Most Acclaimed Animal Film Stars of All Time

In this age of products and fast food franchises being skillfully marketed as movies, starring 3-D computer-animated, wise-cracking, pop-culture-referencing animals (think mice, chipmunks, and dancing penguins), it's easy to forget that animals starring in classic movies were living, breathing, and occasionally carnivorous creatures. Some of these animal actors were huge stars in their time. Others made just one film before deciding Hollywood wasn't for them. Movies today are very different indeed than what they were back in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. But maybe today's popularity of CGI-created macaws and rats has something to do with the contributions these nine talented animals made to the industry.
