CliffJ,

My vote: John Wayne

Naval aviators, especially Top Gun pilots, are team players. They would never pull the stupid and dangerous stunts that Tom Cruise's character

Maverick did. Maverick would be court-martialed.

FYI, Bad back link 404 error

FYC
The High and the Mighty (1954), Island in the Sky (1953) and Flying Leathernecks (1951), The Wings of Eagles (1957) and Flying Tigers (1942) are more iconic to me.

I think The Wings of Eagles (1957) and Top Gun (1986) might be a better comparison as both feature famous naval aviators in a face-off. Which of these two legendary naval aviation aces is number one in your book?

Unlike the writers and producers of Top Gun (1986), Donald P. Bellisario has an affinity and understanding of the US Navy.

My vote: Tom Cruise.  Top Gun is kinda cheesy, but likable.  :)

Try again. I forgot that the private setting was on.
Check out all the lists.
Some are crappy
I'd say about 25% are O.K.
Give Me your Siskel and Ebert on them.
If you would like to borrow one or two and make em different, I'll let you have em.

What Did I Do Wrong Now? - Awesome!  You could add Jan Brady.

Crime Fighting Couples T.V. - You could add Hannah Swensen and Mike Kingston from Hallmark's Murder She Baked.

I will get back to you on the others later!  :)

Weird X Files Photos - Hilarious!  Add a pic from that Brady Bunch episode, if you can.  (What the heck is #3???)

Sarah vs. Sarah Face Off - I'd vote!

I Want To Play That Role - Neat!

BTW, here's my List list (some of them aren't done, aren't polls, and won't be polls.)

LOL!  Yeah, most people aren't fans of my Not a Fan.  :()  Actually, the Not A Fan was a poll suggestion - some of those movies I do like, I just was trying to be inclusive of a bunch of popular movies.

Hi Ed, 

'Good poll and good intro! I'd suggest using their last names in the title to attract more voters. 

And may I suggest one very small edit to the intro? ('below in bold: 'just added a dash)

John Wayne or Tom Cruise. Propellers or Jets. Flying Tiger or Top Gun. Fly through this Face-Off Poll. Which of these two has more need for speed?


Oh, I love "After flying lessons and voting"

And like some others, I get a 404 error when I click the back-link.

I sure hope this does better than Bogey and Bacall vs Tracey and Hepburn.
It seems like the older the people in the poll the less likely it will garner votes!!!
