From To Kill A Mockingbird to the upcoming Widows. Hell of a resume. What is your favorite? Currently watching Secondhand Lions. It didn't get as much attention as Open Range but worth a look.
"I love the smell of Napalm in the morning."
I enjoyed Secondhand Lions at lot. And Duvall was at his best in Lonesome Dove.

Loved him in THE APOSTLE.

Probably Gus in Lonesome Dove, but I also agree with CQB60 about his role as Tom Hagen.

I haven't yet seen The Apostle , but intend to.

Cattle dog and horse lovers really like Robert Duvall. He owns several of both - his Facebook page is filled with them:
Our entire Facebook feed is cattle dogs (heelers) and horses, so he is well regarded. He seems like a pretty good guy - he's got a beautiful farm in Virginia.
“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”

I have liked every movie he has starred in...especially the westerns, open Range and Lonesome Dove. There was a movie out years ago, Assassination Tango , where he plays a hit man sent to Argentina to kill a corrupt General, that I enjoyed even though the reviews on the movie were meh...
Another one was Tomorrow ...a somewhat offbeat low key movie from back in the 70s...
Even the small part he played in Slingblade as Karl Childer's crazy assed dad was perfect...he is one of the greats.

Last night in Mexico was cool along with his appearance in Jack Reacher. Man is an animal! Second Hand Lions is classic though... what every boy needs to know to become a man! Ha
Corn corn corn, guess that salesman saw us coming... no saw you comin’!

The Man Who Captured Eichmann.
Perhaps not one of his best.
I have always liked Robert Duvall, from watching him on Twilight Zone and Outer Limits.
"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" ✡ I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
He done good in Days of Thunder and Open Range.
|so sexy it hurts|
My earliest memory of Duvall was his character THX in George Lucas' pre-SW epic dystopian film.
He is truly one of the greats.

Yes, that may be his best work.
But he always delivers.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Open Range I enjoyed, as have the other movies mentioned.
Interesting tidbit, born in San Diego, his father was a admiral in the Navy and grew up in Annapolis but, ended up in the Army. Used his GI Bill to study acting in NYC along with fellow classmates, James Caan and Gene Hackman, and was roommates with Dustin Hoffman.
