True acting is not a profession that draws stable people. The older time male actors such as Wayne and Gable were never really great actors. They were personalities who played versions of themselves in movies.

Very true. Clark Gable played Clark Gable in Gone with the Wind, and it was great.

Very true. The "greats" are great at being themselves in a character. The only actor that could be both himself and get lost in character, IMHO, was the late, great, James Cagney.
