Best Lee Marvin movie IMHO was "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence." But that was from the 60s, so I guess it doesn't count.

How can you forget action star Pam Grier?????? C'mon...some greats like "Coffy", "Hit Man", "Foxy Brown", "Fort Apache, the Bronx", a part on "Miami Vice", "Above the Law"... more recently, she's been in "Mars Attacks!", "Escape from LA", and "Jackie Brown".

None of your films listed are from the '70s or '80s. They're all '50s, '60s, and '90s. Maybe you ought to include Lee Van Cleef in your poll. His best film "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly?" Guess you've never seen "High Noon" or "Escape From New York."

Are you kidding?Clint Eastwood was the man.Some of the best one liners ever came outta dirty Harry. You forgot Arnold for the 80's.Played alot of good roles. Bronson was cool too.Sheesh,how many of those deathwish films did he make? You ever see Lee Marvin in Emperor of the North? Ernest Borgnine played a real SOB for all time in that one.[stick]

James Coburn, Sgt. Steiner, Pat Garret, if he is good enough for Peckinpah, he is good enough for me.

Actually, you should watch "Le Mans", "Thomas Crown Affair", "The Getaway" (with Ali McGraw..yum), "Great Escape", "Magnificent Seven" (with Bronson, Brenner, Coburn, etc), "Bullitt" and several others if you think that. He hardly ever dies......

I picked Eastwood. He was the only one to consistantly produce good action movies in that period. 70 to 85 covers Outlaw Josey Wales and Pale Rider as well as all but one of the Dirty Harry movies. Steve McQueen was good, but he died in 81. And most of his best action pics were in the 60's Tom Horn would be a exception. Lee Marvin and Charles Bronson made as many pictures, but Eastwoods were better, even allowing for some of the crap Eastwood made like Joe Kidd and Bronco Billy... John Wayne was THE American action star prior to 70 but I find most of his 70's films difficult to watch- he was only working because he was broke due to bad off screen financial choices and he had nothing to sell but his name. His health was failing and it showed in his work, but he was financially unable to retire. It was sad. The Shootist is a ok film- a excellent supporting cast outshone the low TV movie level production values- but is it really a action pic? They spent a lot of time talking.
