The Spaghetti genres most iconic actors, both of whom have gone on to other things outside Spaghetti Westerns (Van Cleef: "Escape from New York", Eastwood; "Dirty Harry"), but which one do you prefer. (Spoiler!) Clint may beat Lee at the end of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", but who do you think is the better actor? For me, no matter how good Eastwood is (and he is excellent in some films, and I've heard great things about the movies he has directed), Lee Van Cleef wins. I think it's his snake-like eyes and persona that wins me over.
