20. John Ford/John Wayne
Notable Collaborations: "Donovan's Reef," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," "The Wings Of Eagles," "The Searchers," "The Quiet Man," "3 Godfathers," "Fort Apache," "Rio Grande," "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon," "They Were Expendable"
What makes them special: No filmmaker has ever had this big a movie star available to them over so many years, and Ford seemed well aware the entire time of just how malleable Wayne was, even within his fairly limited range as an actor. Any director who can get both "The Quiet Man" and "The Searchers" out of the same guy is a bona fide genius.
