Gregory Peck's character from 1962 OSCAR-winner To Kill a Mockingbird and Anthony Hopkins' gruesome SILENCE OF THE LAMBS serial killer topped an AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE poll of favourite Tinseltown good and bad guys.
Lawyer Finch pipped whip-slinging archeologist INDIANA JONES and sharp-suited superspy James Bond to the top of the list of heroes - while face chewing psychologist Lecter was perceived to be even more dastardly than Oedipal PSYCHO NORMAN BATES and Star Wars' dark lord DARTH VADER.
The top ten heroes and villains are as follows:
