He's arguably been the most successful big-time actor who's managed to become an equally (if not more) successful director. But overall which of the two leaves the more lasting impression with you? Clint the iconic, superstar actor or Clint the hugely talented director? I know they're completely different crafts, very difficult to counter against one another, but it would still be interesting to see which of the two people prefer (if any, that is).
I'm going with Clint the director. As great a screen presence as he's been throughout his long, distinguished career (both his own directed movies and others) his talents as a pure filmmaker I think outweighs it. He's a world class director, I think, amongst the top 10 currently working in US cinema. So it's the director's hat for me.
