come on the professor on gilligans island made a microwave out of a couple of coconuts and a stick.
Despite the vastly differening number of movies, and the vastly differing abount of of dialogue they get, they both have roughly similar word counts.
If you disallow repetition.
Yup. You can do anything with the tool of plot expediency.
Kind of along these same lines, this just popped up on Reverb.com:
EDIT: oops, just saw the thread about it.
Yeah, I'd have to take the Duke.
There just ain't no way to hide that paint your wagon thing, is there?
Excellent! Thanks for the link.
PS. I'm not coming in this weekend AND I don't have my TPS Reports done yet.
Phred, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?
...like Clint played different characters? Lol.
An order of magnitude more than the Duke. Look at his IMDB entry and compare it to Wayne's.
Not sure what you're getting at with "IMDB entry" What we are talking about is the character played. You said JW played the same character over and over. Well if you look at CE's westerns from Fistful Of Dollars to Unforgiven his characters are pretty much the same over and over, but that's why we like those guys. It is their style of portrayal that endears them to us, and I like movies from both very much.
As for comments from others that John Wayne was a terrible actor while comparing him to another guy whose whole acting bit in the genre was a character totally devoid of any emotion except occasional brooding or anger seems awfully funny. I guess it's easy to be a far better actor if you don't have to act but one way.
I’d go with the one who was holding the gun!
Has to be Clint!
Maybe not relevant to the argument but he also directed some great westerns, High Plains Drifter, Josey Wales, Pale Rider, Unforgiven.
The man turns 88 in 10 days time and he's about to star and direct in another film. No one else comes close.
Some of the reasons lots of people have a hard time comparing Clint to John is just because John Wayne was an actor but Clint is culmination of genius and ability...and kind of like "but he's also good at acting". His vision is just way different than JW. And I do agree that both of them play the same guy over and over!
JW played a soldier in war, or he played in a Western, basically. CE played a bigger variety of characters over his career. He didn't strike me as having the same limitations, and is more interesting as an actor because of that. IMHO. YMMV. OMGWTFBBQ, etc.
Ok, so neither of them could play but one character, but we liked the characters.
Clint and the Duke looked kinda stupid when they tried to act, Bronco Billy, The Quite Man.
The worst of the worst was when Clint was in heat for Sandra Locke, putting the audience through trying to make her an actress should have been a crime, and the singing, Jesus!
John Wayne played a lot of characters other than military or westerns. The only thing I can say to that is that you haven't seen the entire catalog then.
But regardless, the whole point of the thread discussion is westerns. You like Clint better? Fine. I certainly won't fault you for that, 'cause I like him too. If I were to choose between the two for uninhabited desert island viewing I'm going for the Duke for sheer volume alone. I don't know if there is a Clint Eastwood western I haven't seen before several times over. Now I'm sure there's a decent number of John Wayne westerns I still have not seen.
I guess if his "genius" in acting is just being emotionless he was great. I liked his westerns but his range of emotion he had to display was almost nonexistent.
Clint hands down for me.
John Wayne. I like Clint but John Wayne is John Wayne.
