Top 25 Greatest Film Heroes

Guess the 25 most heroic heroes and heroines seen on the silver screen. Source: American Film Institute (AFI) 100 Years...100 Heroes and Villains
I give you the film, you give me the hero.
Only enter the name of the character, not the real name of the actor playing them.
Apologies that some are a bit obvious - that's just how film naming goes. But others are less obvious.

I think this quiz would work better if you had to guess the films from the character names?

I knew Rick, George, Clarice, Thelma & Louise (obvs), Harry, but couldn't get any of their surnames. Feels like knowing the first names is enough.
