It says that they ranked at 19th & 22nd respectively.

What's the opposite ?

That they were wildly successful ?

Yes, a "teenage idol" who was too old to play a teenager.

There are many bizarre examples of actors / actresses playing the role of teenagers, while they were well into their twenties in real life.

James Dean was 24 when he appeared on "Rebel Without A Cause", Elvis was 23 in "King Creole", 26 in "Blue Hawaii", etc.

There is a 1956 film directed by Don Siegel, "Crime In The Streets", starring John Cassavetes. The film is about juvenile delinquency... but Cassavetes was already 26 years old !

He was young at heart though.


Yes he was.

It depends how you interpretate the results. Do you look to the first year after the premiere?
Do you look to the period as long as royaties or another fee were paid for showing the movies in a cinema. There are various ways to come to a net profit over the years. In those years the profit of video / DVD were even not included.
When I read the stories about sales / earnings I don’t take that too serious without “official” documents.
