Movie legend Clint Eastwood has topped a poll to find the favourite screen cowboy of all time.

The UNFORGIVEN OSCAR-winner beat off competition from John Wayne and STEVE McQUEEN with performances in classics including The Good, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES and HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER.

Clint, 73, was voted by viewers of television channel TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES.

A spokesman for the channel says, "Clint was the runaway winner. He clearly has a great affection for the Wild West and you can see that in the way he acts."

Others to make the TOP TEN COWBOYS list are: James Stewart, Kevin Costner, Paul Newman, Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck, Lee Marvin and Henry Fonda.
