I suspect Donovan McNabb is in this group.  If not, it just means he is in 1-6

clint was only in what 3 or 4 westerns and to compare the 50's 60s westerns to spahetti 70s westerns is crazy

I like Clint fine but...Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson. Lee Van Clief, Eli Wallach  and Henry Fonda were in some good westerns. Most of them are better actors than Eastwood too.

I'm not old enough to have strong opinions one way or the other.

i was never much of a western fan but if i had to pick an actor it would be Michael J Fox in Back to the Future 3.

Bought the wort chiller... brewed a batch of IPA on Sunday, my frementer  has been going nuts bubbling non-stop for 3 days straight since I put it in there.

 I say I think because I was counting Eastwoods westerns in my head by title.

 And Wayne was in 84 westerns according to the interwebs. He was not a very good actor though. Often actors in his supporting cast in those movies were far better.

 Still more than twice as many as 3 or 4.
