So my vote goes to Clint Eastwood due to Josey Wales, Dirty Harry and Heartbreak Ridge. Anybody else?

I met Clint Eastwood when he was filming Space Cowboys. He was an A**Hole from the get go. He hardly spoke to anyone and took one group pic the whole time he was in our facility. The Duke gets my vote!

Clint Eastwood was anti-gun as mayor of carmel Kali. John Wayne was always pro-gun!!! nuf said

The Duke, no doubt. He's from the old school.

Had you guys going. My dad would hunt me down and put a knife through my heart if I ever really put anybody above the Duke. I grew up watching his movies. He was the original Die Hard. [marines]

Clint made some great movies, but I think the real Clint is an elitist liberal. The Duke wins hands down.

The Duke wins no contest.

Debate all you want, but it's the Duke by a wide margine. Only Lee Marvin comes close and he way out tuffs "Clit" Eastwood.

[size=4][b]John Wayne![/b][/size=4] Must have something to do with your age. Older folks, such as myself, will probably choose John Wayne, younger folks, Clint Eastwood.

Eastwood was very good in "Unforgiven", one of the best, if not the best western ever made. Wayne was larger than life however.
Link Posted: 10/6/2001 12:45:48 PM EDT
I think it's like comparing apples to oranges. Now I'm only 22 years old have seen all of Eastwood movies and most of John Wayne movies. I'd have to say John Wayne is the best of the two just look at him in Big Jake, Hell fighters and Red River. Now this maybe off the subject but the Duke was a better actor he could do any role you placed him in unlike Clint witch sucked in love roles. SO I SAY THE DUKE ALL THE WAY. but I still like Clint Eastwood also he is in my top three favorite actors.

I heard that Clint was packing at the fund raiser that was on TV after the WTC went down. Did anyone else notice Clint's jacket didn't fit just right?

Yeah, does anyone have any proof or something solid. He is one of my favorite actors and I would like to continue liking him(unless he is an anti)

I would put Clint up there with the "Duke" .... but then I remember "Bronco Billy" and "Every Which Way but Loose"! Bronson and Lee Marvin are up there too! Both in "Death Hunt"! The Duke....The Searchers, The Shootist, Big Jake, True Grit.....and all the others! The Duke gets my vote! DaMan

My buddy keeps saying the Duke was gay. I said no way, but he insists that he was in the closet like Rock Hudson. For this discussion, I am gonna choose Clint. He did westerns: (Good/Bad/Ugly, Fistful of Dollars, Hang Em High, etc. Also Outlaw Josey Wales, 2 Mules, Paint your wagon) He did cops (Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, Sudden Impact, City Heat, Etc.) He did soldiers ( Where Eagles dare, Heartbreak Ridge, Kellys Heroes, Eiger) He did romances (Pink Cadillac, Play Misty 4 me, Bronco Billy, The Gauntlet, etc.) He did comadies ( Any which way you can, every way but loose, Etc.) He made duds (Space cowboys, Thunderbolt/Lightfoot) He even did a TV series and he sings and directs too. I just think he is the more versatile of the two. I'll admit, the Duke did make many more movies, but he wasn't in anything good until WWII. Those pre-1940 movies were like TV shows. As far as who would whip who in a fist fight or gunfight, it depends.

I've recently seen two bios on the Duke. He filed for an exemption from WWII in order to protect his growing stardom in Hollywood. Officially, it was for 'family responsibilities', but it was because he could make more money as a star as opposed to a GI. He was NOT exempted for a football injury, as many Duke fans like to claim. I've seen websites that make that claim, but those sites were hosted by Wayne fans. Don't get me wrong, I like his movies and I like him, he is just not the hero that everyone makes him out to be. He placed his personal needs ahead of loyalty to country in a situation like WWII. There are many stars who actually served in WWII, like Jimmy Stewart, Lee Marvin, Robert Stack, and many more. They were heroes, not the Duke.

The Duke, just finished watching flying leather necks, seen it 100 times now and did not leave my chair till it was over, credits and all!
Link Posted: 10/14/2001 1:41:18 PM EDT
I dunno..I think James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, and George Raft are pretty hard to beat as tough guys. For Westerners...The Duke and Eastwood are OK as tough guys..but I think Yule Brenner is one bad a** dude (Magnificent Seven) Also Charles Bronson.

Clint!
Link Posted: 10/14/2001 1:57:02 PM EDT
OK Guys, The Duke actually walked out of the hospital after having his lung removed( two packs a day will do that). He didn't want the reporters to show him in a wheel chair - he thought his fans might think he was a wussie! That's pretty damn tough for a guy from California named Marion!!

Between the two, I'll go with the Duke. But for my money, the baddest bad guy has got to be Richard Boone.

Remember the Duke had no say so in his real name, but he still turned out to be one great American ass kicker.
Link Posted: 10/14/2001 9:23:19 PM EDT
This sounds a lot like the Elvis/Beatles arguement. Seems like you are either for one or the other. Personally I'd go with John Wayne. He had an undeniable screen presence and was truly larger than life.

Clint may have some of the cooler one liners. But the Duke is a greatest icon on the screen. He presents the image of being a proud American.
Link Posted: 10/15/2001 4:04:37 AM EDT
Jimmy Stewart & John Wayne Shenendoah, plus the others. Doesn't have the screen presence as John Wayne, but he didn't act. What we saw is what you got. Jimmy Stewart is a humble man. Benjamin

And John Wayne would be the first to admit to that! But sometimes, a nation needs its heroes on the big screen, acting out its collective fanatsies about beating the Krauts and Japs, and so we need to give credit to those who serve in other ways as well. Eric The(GivingTheDukeHisDue)Hun[>]:)]
