not a comment on your movie selection but rather on John Wayne (who i always loved) and his fellow actors. When those guys turned 50/60, they looked terrible, fat, and old. Look at Clark Cable; he died at 59 and honestly, while i am currently a year older, I look at least 10 years younger than he did when he made his last movies. I guess between the booze, smoking, unhealthy eating, and the women, they burned out quickly. Of course there were guys who didn't look like crap when they got that old, Cary Grant being one of them. Compare that to male actors today who have to hit 70 plus before they look start looking bad.
The wonders of plastic surgery?
And less hard living - Duke Wayne lost a lung to cancer & STILL couldn't put down the coffin nails.
