Clint Eastwood by far. He was "The Man with no Name", I think the reason behind that was the directors knew that people were not going to remember his name in a movie, just the amount of ass that he kicked.

Not even close.
Clint's spaghetti westerns had every shot ricochet, even when he hit someone. Plus he got the crap beat out of him in every one.
Clint's "Dirty Harry" movies had him getting a partner killed every time. Hmmm, seems "Unforgiven" has the same.
Did he ever learn???
Clint made a couple movies with an ape (orangutan?).
Clint singing in "Paint Your Wagon" was truly painful.
Clint's female lead (Sandra Locke) was pitiful.
And don't EVEN think about "Bridges of Madison County".
(Oh man, I'm even ashamed I know that).

"The Duke" on the other hand had beauties like Maureen O'Hara, Katherine Hepburn, and even in his last movie (The Shootist) had Lauren Bacall.
His singing in his early films was painful also, but I think it wasn't really him.
His partners seemed not only to survive the movie, but show up in the next one as well. Ward Bond, Chill Wills, Scatman Crothers, etc.
I'll take the Duke on my side, anytime.

Mr. Eastwood seems to do more anti-hero roles. Furthermore, he portrays a deranged director turned poacher in "White Hunter, Black Heart." Yet when John Wayne starred in a feature, even if he was the antagonist, he took care to limit the extent of his crimes. I would further remind the readers that in "Hatari", one of the questions his character asks De las Andros is if she has gone big game hunting before.

You got me there. But these days pretty much everyone in modern spy thrillers needs a techno-dwarf on their side.

You just reminded me of a great actor, Strother Martin.
Whether in Liberty Valance, Butch Cassidy, or even Cool Hand Luke, he had to have been the precursor of the techno-dwarfs. "What we have here, is a failure to....communicate".
Lee Marvin in Liberty Valance starts out as a badass, but just turns out to be a schoolyard bully.

Mr. Eastwood seems to do more anti-hero roles. Furthermore, he portrays a deranged director turned poacher in "White Hunter, Black Heart." Yet when John Wayne starred in a feature, even if he was the antagonist, he took care to limit the extent of his crimes. I would further remind the readers that in "Hatari", one of the questions his character asks De las Andros is if she has gone big game hunting before.

IMA vote for Keifer Sutherland. Chisum and The Man w/ No Name have nothing on Jack Bauer. Runner up is Godzilla. 3rd place hon mention to Da Bears.

Seriously -- John Wayne rode his own horses in True Grit and Big Jake. I like the Clint movies and think Eastwood is a good guy too, but did he ride his own horses & do his own stunts? Anyone know?

You just reminded me of a great actor, Strother Martin.
Whether in Liberty Valance, Butch Cassidy, or even Cool Hand Luke, he had to have been the precursor of the techno-dwarfs. "What we have here, is a failure to....communicate".
Lee Marvin in Liberty Valance starts out as a badass, but just turns out to be a schoolyard bully.

Gran Tourino was an awesome way to end Clint's prestigious acting career.

sihunter,
You're right, Lee Marvin's hat was a classic, as was his horse in Cat Ballou, and even the silver nose!

Clint Eastwood is way more of a badass. He actually does some epic things whereas the Duke is more of a symbol of awesomeness.

"Don't recall either Wayne or Eastwood ever gripped by the angst of ol' Jack Bauer."

The Quiet Man. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence. Silverado. Unforgiven.

"Also don't recall either of them ever needing help from some little techno-dwarf female."

You got me there. But these days pretty much everyone in modern spy thrillers needs a techno-dwarf on their side.

Just noticed a couple of Lee Marvin comments above. My favorite Lee Marvin movie was The Big Red One. Watch him shoot the M1 without a blink-hoora! to an actual scout sniper. Also an actual hunter and fisherman.
