    • Harris Poll 2010 - Favorite Actor - Duke STILL in Top Ten!

      John Wayne does it again!! He's STILL in the Harris Poll Top Ten Favorite Actors, in the #7 spot!

      As y'all know, he's done what NO one has done before - been the ONLY dead actor to have made the Harris Poll Top Ten EVERY year since the poll started, in 1993 (in fact, the only dead star to have ever appeared on the list).

      Just thought you'd want to know!

      And if you notice, he is the only actor to be on it every year since it started. Not bad for a man who's last movie was 1977.

      Just think where he would be if we had a vote.He would never leave number one.

      Thanks, Mark, for that clarification!

      Yes, Duke is the ONLY actor, dead or alive, to be on the list every year since it's inception in 1993.

      He is the only DEAD actor to ever be on it at all.

      Jim!
      A little clarification. As long as good folks like you and the members of this board are around, Duke will always be alive. He just taking a brake between fims for a while.:cowboy:
      Or so I tell myself.

      Duke was, and is, a magnificent American actor. When you think about, who else could ever replace him in people's hearts?

      As we've mentioned in other posts, the trick is to pass on his heritage to younger generations. Once they find him, Duke does the rest.

      Not surprising, when you consider the competition. :))):

      I was impressed with this years list. Just curious as to how Johnny Depp got #2. I did like seeing Sandra Bullock in there considering her busy schedule, but it is always great to see Duke in there.

      I was a little disappointed that fewer of Duke's movies were shown on TV or it seemed to me that, and no release of any of his remaining DVD's. I think that some of his movies were released on Blue Ray in 2009.

      If not Duke, then Clint is just fine.

      Cheers :cool:

      IMO, the results shown for this Harris "Poll" are skewed to show favorite actors/actresses of the younger generations because except for the Duke and maybe Eastwood, all the performers on the list are those who have come along in the past 15-20 years and as we all know, there were Hollywood figures of the past who put people like Johnny Depp, George Clooney and Denzil Washington to shame. Such as Paul Newman, Jimmy Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and many others I could name.

      I've said it before but it bears repeating - what we have in cultural preferences today shows clear evidence of a strong "generation gap". All you have to do is scan the results of favorite movie polls, or favorite music polls, or favorite whatever polls.

      I was just wondering how the poll is tabulated. Does anyone know?

      Tbone, I think if you click on the link, there's some good information on the page as to how the results are determined. It would appear the question is asked "Who is your favorite actor?" with no further prompting (i.e., it seems they don't offer any names). It was an online poll of 2,276 adults 18 and over, between December 7 and 14, 2009. There's other information there as well, that might better answer your question.
