  1. Wow, this is tough. I'm going to give a slight edge to Sean Connery due to personal preference. I'm also a major Bond fan and think he'd delivered a lot of solid performances in a lot of other films beyond your list. Eastwood is excellent too, so it's just a very small difference in my opinion.

  2. Dayum. Love 'em both, but Clint Eastwood has been far more important to me as a film fan. It's painful, but I'm giving it to Clint.

  3. Sean Connery for the win. How else can you explain him playing a role of a Spanish, Russian, Irishman, Or American with that thick Scottish accent, but people seem to ignore that fact? :D Bonus points: charming all the BOND GIRLS.

  4. Eastwood. Just looking at him you know he's a badass.

  5. Dr. No (1962, Terence Young)
    At the baccarat table of a lush casino...

    Bond: I admire your courage Mrs...

    Sylvia Trench: Trench, Sylvia Trench. I admire your luck Mr.?...

    Bond (who flames up a cigarette): Bond. James Bond.


  6. I vote for Eastwood. Still haven't forgiven Connery for saying it's ok to hit women.

  7. Eastwood. He's had the better career.

  8. It's hard to choose considering how iconic both men are. I'm likely to say Clint Eastwood because he's been in better movies and he's more of a badass than Connery.

  9. As much as I love Sean, this one is no contest. Not only has Clint appeared in more great movies, he's also a helluva director.
