I learned that a lot of the actors I like aren't really that great of actors, but have a cultural/mythological legacy they're tied to. Which is why my favorite actors tend to be people like John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Chishu Ryu, etc. These actors are great because they represent and leave behind an image or myth that I respond to rather personally despite their cultural popularity.

One of my professors made a point in saying that this in itself crystallizes these actors into greatness that transcends acting itself into something much bigger. Clark Gable was lauded as potentially the greatest actor of his generation, but look what happened to him, he's remembered for two movies and never became the icon that people thought he'd be. John Wayne in contrast, as much shit he gets for doing the same thing all the time and criticisms of being too wooden, is forever. And in this similar tradition, one of the actors my professor said will be considered and we'll look back years from now as being a great actor in this sense: Harrison Ford.

And I can totally see that.

john wayne is fucking awesome. one of the worst actors of all time but you're spot on with the cultural/mythological thing. he will always be the reigning caricature of old school hegemonic masculinity :godbless:

Yeah, you could almost call him an auter as far as acting is concerned (same with Ryu and Bogart).
