Why a poll about these two? Do they correlate somehow?

I personally think Brando was over estimated as an actor. I cannot think of one movie of his I would watch twice, except Mutiny On The Bounty maybe, saw it once, recently because of the ship sinking in storm sandy.

It came up in a conversation with a friend of mine yesterday. There were a couple of pictures, one of each of them, both on motorcycles. We were speculating as to which one was more popular and why. I wonder if the women have a different opinion. Actually I know they do, but I wonder if they like Brand over McQueen or vice verse and why.

Just curiosity.

Alright. I've been specifically asked to give a woman's perspective on this poll. I don't usually post on polls that show who voted for what. But, I'll be a sport..........

There was a "neither" option but no "both" option. Why isn't there a "C3shooter", "CA357" or "Canebrake" option? There is someone I would vote for hands down but he wasn't an option, either.

So, okay. I voted. He brings out the Mama in me.

But if we could vote twice my next vote would be McQueen. He brings out the woman in me.

On the contrary. Marlon Brando is considered by many esteemed actors to be the consummate actor of all times. As for watching his movies more than once. I have to admit to the following:

The Godfather
One-Eyed Jack
Last Tango In Paris
Streetcar Named Desire
On The Waterfront
Mutiny On The Bounty
The Young Lions
Viva Zapata
Julius Caesar
The Missouri Breaks
The Fugitive Kind
... and a few others.

Steve McQueen was also a big favorite of mine.

Speaking for myself only... I voted "neither" and with that in mind I nominate Fess Parker. Texan, veteran, movie AND television icon, loyal husband and family man, sucessful businessman... like Roy Rodgers, what you saw what what you got. No scandles, drugs, wife beating, getting involved in fringe militant movements.... and I'm proud to have his stuff on DVD and show it to my son. Now THERE was a star!!
... For the youngsters here, Google it!

PS- He played T/Sgt. Bill Pike in "Hell is for Heroes" with Steve McQueen.... so there's your connection.

I kinda liked Sir Alec Guiness.

Can you say:

"The force will be with you!"

And, of course, the all time greatest: JOHN WAYNE.
