Dude, I don't blame you at all. But the OT young uns crowd took over and that really isn't debatable. I mean, c'mon...Marilyn Monroe lost to Emmanuelle Chiquita or whatever her name is. Plus there was quite a bit of...voter intimidation going on.

I really expected it to be that way though, which is why I participated very little.

Don't blame you though.




Now calm down before your brain falls out.

Let's truce on the Eastwood/Wayne war for now. I'm pretty sure they will be the top 2 anyway, and more than likely Wayne will win.


John Wayne 24
Clint Eastwood 24
James Stewart 10
Gary Cooper 16
Randolph Scott 6
Audie Murphy 4
Gregory Peck 16

No way I could vote out AM just for his war hero status.

Turn my back on this thread for a second and this happens. Not cool. This game is no fun. Taking my ball and going home.

This isn't any fun if it is just the 2 of us.

I imagine most people would agree as far as western actors go. But I think Clint has a little quality over quantity. I think Clint's top 5 beats the Duke's Top 5. Having said that, I've only seen 3 John Wayne westerns all the way through.

Okay, I'll take the bait, because this is the real argument...1st generation film Cowboy vs. 2nd generation...Americana vs. Spaghetti...romanticism vs. realism.

The Duke:

The Shootist
Rio Bravo
Red River
True Grit
The Searchers

Clint:

Good, Bad, Ugly
The Unforgiven
Outlaw Josey Wales
A Fistful of Dollars
High Plains Drifter

Every time I look at these lists, it goes back and forth 3-2 for each.

I lean toward Wayne because of The Searchers, Red River and Rio Bravo slightly eclipsing Good, Bad, Ugly, Outlaw and Unforgiven in terms of icon status and universal critical praise.

Out of that list I've only seen The Searchers and True Grit. Rio Bravo is on my to do list though.

I've never been a big High Plains Drifter fan. I get the point and all. I'd put Pale Rider on my top 5 list.

Now if we were going Top 3, you could make the argument for Jimmy Stewart also. I'm not making that argument, but I wouldn't laugh at someone who did.

For me, True Grit is really the only JW movie that would match Unforgiven, Outlaw JW and Good, Bad & Ugly.

The John Wayne True Grit was terrible. Matty was one of the most annoying characters in western film history. I love some John Wayne movies but he also has a ton of average movies. He just plays the same character in every role, he never stretches his acting abilities.
