The basic premise for the poll is as follows: I will post up a set of three Actors for each sub-Round. Folks will have roughly three days to vote in each sub-Round, picking their favourite Actor from the batch. (Going to Wikipedia or one of the other sites for information on the films the actor has been in may be helpful to folks as well.) The winner in each sub-Round will go on to the next Round, but it possible that actors with lots of votes from various sub-Rounds could also make it into the next Round, depending on how many are needed for a given Round.
I will also announce the winner of each Round here on the blog and over on the Shades of Noir mailing list as well. I'm also going to be doing this for favourite Noir Actress, Movie, and Director as well, so things should get interesting. :)
Let the first Round begin in the next message! :)
