Both were good at what they did. The fact all have voted Steve shows a little something about the members here. Marlon was more of a stage and screen actor, a different bird than someone that works between cuts.

Brando once demanded a half million dollars for a half hours work, and got it.

Like I said, both were good, but there will never be another Brando. Henery Fonda was pretty close, and both started out as stage actors at a little place called The Omaha Playhouse. Omaha also turned out Johney Carson about that same time.

No takers for Beiber?

I only know one actor more awesome than McQueen, I voted for McQueen.

Must have something to do with the fact that none of the women have chimed in yet. Maybe. Then again maybe they would vote for McQueen too.

Never cared for McQueen. Liked Brando until that stupidity with the indian at the academy awards.

Now Charlie Bronson was my kinda guy!

What else did they teach them in Omaha? All three were very anti gun activist.

McQueen carried after the Manson killings (he was supposed to be there and was a target that night.) and I thought he was pro gun (or at least not an anti).

Paleese, McQueen and it's not even close. That's like asking, "who's hotter, Ellie May or Miss Hathaway.

Showed how old and out dated I am.

Hard to tell as both actors are my favorite of all times. However, after reading both biographies I would have to say that although Marlon Brando revolutionized 'American' acting on stage & screen,
Steve McQueen, on the other hand, has indeed led a hair-raising life coming 'round deadly curves both on and off screen.

McQueen (trying hard to understand) says to director Norman Jewison when explained why he thought rugged Steve was not right for the sophisticated lead in the Thomas Crown Affair:
"You're squeezing my melon, man,"

McQueen was the man! Always played it like a normal guy and brought reality to his rolls. Not to mention you know any other actor that could have driven that bike in The Great Escape better?

Well,
I did enjoy that comedy brando made,
"the wild one"
But McQueen was an Actor.
Could and did play many roles.
"The Great Escape" being one.
The late, great, Bud Ekins did the stunt riding in "The Great Escape"
