    Who do you think is the better COWBOY between these two ACTORS. I know there are other good COWBOYS, BUT this is between JOHN and CLINT.

    You are so RIGHT RICHARD, I could not pick between the two. CLINT is becoming a great DIRECTOR, and I hope he will continue to PRODUCED COWBOY PICTURES. cause I don't anyone else out there can do as good a job directing than him, and the DUKE well he was THE DUKE.

    Now Personally I like Clint better in the westerns and the Dirty Harry Movies, BUT the Duke was the best in War Movies.So I guess it's hard to really say. For me I think Clint has a slight edge.JMHO!

    I hope we get a lot of WESTERN fans to come out and post on these two threads Richard.

    That is a pretty good question but they were both great cowboys in their own right. If I had to pick it would be Clint since I have probably seen more of his "Spagehetti Westerns"

    So far I would say Clint has an early edge. I will go with the Idea that I think they both made some VERY GOOD WESTERNS that I can't pick between the two. John Wayne did many different things besides COWBOY Pictures, of all the other movies he made that was not a WESTERNS, I liked QUIET MAN best. Clint made more WESTERN MOVIES, and WESTERN SERIES, such ar RAWHIDE as well as GUEST apperances as cowboy. Therefore he appears to be more of a COWBOY. IMOP.

    I completely agree with Richard on this. My favorite would have to be the one that I'm currently watching.

    John Wayne by far better than Clint, but the best cowboy has to be Festus :wink: :smile2:

    Thats a tough question. I can't decide. They both made some really good movies with great lines and scenes. This is too hard for me.

    I really like them both but it's not hard for me to pick John Wayne as the best.

    out of all the guys that played Festus I think the 1st one Dennis Weaver did the best. I always thought he walked with a limp in real life until I seen him play ( McCloud ) I think it was. The COP in New York.
