Eastwood can actually act. That is, he can "inhabit" a character, and, for the purpose of the movie, be someone he is not.
I enjoy watching Eastwood's skill in portraying different people, as required.
Furthermore, Eastwood is a pretty good director, too.

John Wayne, iconic though he is, was never an actor. He always played the very same character: Himself.
Nevertheless, I've always enjoyed watching him growl and swagger through his roles.
John Wayne was lucky in having John Ford as both mentor and director. Without Ford, Wayne would've remained a B-movie hack.
