Jessica Lange's Triple Crown 

"This article sums up why Jessica Lange is one of the best actresses ever to grace the screen. " - heikoS

 "Still think her two best performances are Men Don't Leave and Music Box. So disappointed in her Ryan Murphy collaborations." -Charlie G

 "Lange and Streep were born in the same year, won Oscars in the same year, and their immense talent has carried them through" -Jono

1967 Persona (Ingmar Bergman)
give or take: Bonnie & Clyde (Arthur Penn). They're only two of the greatest movies of all time.

in no particular order: Rachel Rachel (Paul Newman), Funny Girl (William Wyler), Oliver! (Carol Reed), 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick) 

 

1969 The Shoot Horses, Don't They (Sydney Pollack)
give or take Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice
(Paul Mazursky) which is far too underappreciated.
