All the movie stars that we attribute the term "legend" to stem from the early decades of cinema. Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn, Clark Gable, to name only a few.
Does an actor have to have passed away before he can be called a legend?
What does it take to be rememembered in decades to come? Oscar wins? Box office success? Media coverage?
And who, from our stars of today, may be a movie legend in, say, 50 years?
