  • Also...Woody claimed at various times in his life that, as per Pappy's usual, that he (Pappy) made up that whole B.S. about the fight between himself and Duke. He also claimed that he and Duke got along famously.

  • I think it needs to be pointed out that his "uncredited" role in Stagecoach is erroneous. The actor shown in that close-up is quite obviously not him. the nose and mouth are very different, and the actor in the close-up is a good deal older than Strode was at the time (23). He might very well HAVE been in Stagecoach as an extra, but he was NOT in that close-up in the bar...you can see for yourself at about 1:20:38

    With regard to the three color pictures posted by Lasbugas on May 21, 2011... The bottom picture is NOT from Ft. Apache, but rather Rio Grade...Duke didn't have a mustache in Ft. Apache, but DID in Rio Grande. Also, note the stairs behind him, and the wagon. This is the wagon used to place the kidnapped children in to return then safely home. I'm beginning to have doubts about the top picture as well, as it appears that he has a different hat from the one he wore in Ft. Apache, plus he also appe…

  • One of my all time favorites..."Sergeant York!"

  • Happy Birthday, Mike!!!

  • Just to add MY .02, this was probably the best western on TV of the era...

  • This "Wacky Tobacky" is GREAT! The Doc says it'll take the hair right off your head! Say...by the looks of YOUR head, it's already startin' to work!!

  • I cannot STAND Oliver Stone or Garry Wills. Both of them are pompous windbag hacks who are full of themselves (among other things...), and deserve to be taken out to the woodshed and given an old fashioned hide-tanning. I didn't even finish watching the video, as I could tell by the lies that were being told from the very start that it would just raise my blood pressure to unsafe levels...

    This is probably already under discussion somewhere else on the site, but...has anyone seen this newest version of "let's try to trash John Wayne as much as we can, entitled - When The Legend Became Fact - The True Life of John Wayne?" It's written by some guy named Richard Douglas Jensen, who claims to be an acclaimed author, veteran film actor (yet no film credits of him exist on IMDb...), and nationally known defense attorney... Can someone please shed some light on this for me? He claims he …

  • Thanks, everyone!!

  • Hey gang. Sorry I've been out of pocket for so long. Lots of health issues, and a few more to come, I'm afraid. Anyway, I bought this treasure, and I'm glad I did! It's a great "repeat" read!

  • Thanks for the kind responses. To top it all off, I've developed a nasty sinus infection, so that brought about a need for a trip to my primary care guy, who was quite helpful and anxious to hear about the endoscopy results. He wrote out an order for some antibiotics, and I'll be calling the Gastroenterologist in the morning to see about the biopsy results. I've already received a notice about my gastric emptying test. That'll be done on 6/6/13, and they're going to re-do the endoscopy and attem…

  • Hi gang - I'm going to apologize in advance for this being a slightly lengthy post. To understand the full scope of why I'm where I am at this point, it has to be. I hope no one is offended or put off. You all know me and know that's not how I am! This is very important to me, so bear with me. You may have noticed I've not been posting as of late. There are a couple of reasons for this. One of them is because the format change is - quite frankly - confusing, and I'm not a fan of the layout. I re…

  • While I don't like him in everything he does, it's only because the characters he plays are sometimes so unappealing. He BECOMES that person, right down to the last detail. So if THEY'RE too hard to stomach...it's a tribute to his ability as an actor in making them "come to life" before our eyes. He's one of a very select few people - male or female - that could have been successful in any era of Hollywood's history, and he's very humble about his success as well, based on what I've gleaned from…

  • While I don't like him in everything he does, it's due mainly to the fact that it's the CHARCTER he's playing that I find so unappealing. He BECOMES that person, right down to the last detail. So if THEY'RE too hard to stomach...it's a tribute to his ability in making them "come to life" before our eyes. As you know, I lived in L.A. For 10 years, working around the edges of "the industry," and knew lots of folks who "knew lots of folks, who knew lots of folks...." we'll, you get the idea. Anyway…

  • Just finished watching Sergeant York. Absolutely one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I grew up about 50 miles from Alvin York's stomping grounds, and my step-granddad was in the All-American division with him. Joan Leslie is probably THE most underrated actress of that era. She was such a great addition to whatever she was in.

  • Carl...it isn't the same as it was when we were kids. I'm 52 (well, I will be in August, God willing), and aside from Charles Whitman picking off folks from the clock tower at UT Austin in 1966, folks could send their kids to school without having to worry about them being shot up, blown up, stabbed, or otherwise mangled. Oddly enough, I was stabbed in the head by one of those giant red pencils by another kid just for introducing myself to him! I had a mark on my head for 15 years! Anyway, aside…

  • Congrats, Arthur!!

  • Babes on Broadway. Another one of those Mickey and Judy "Hey, let's put on a show" pictures that they did about a jillion times in a row! It was great!!! The finale of "Waitin' For the Robert E. Lee/Babes on Broadway" (the former performed almost entirely in blackface) was spectacular, and pure Busby Berkley!!

    I gotcha! Once I saw your response, I remember actually driving through the area and seeing the signs for the town! I live near Oak Ridge (my hometown) in East Tennessee!

    DukePilgrim - I'm at a loss regarding your remarks about Tennessee...Since I'm living here again, where exactly IS our Belfast here in the "Greenest state in the land of the free?!" BTW Carl, there are far more Irish living in the Lone Star state than you might realize!

  • Welcome to our merry group!

  • I just started reading my copy of the book, as I just received it. It's very informative, and it's VERY detailed as well... I look forward to sharing my thoughts. This is going to be an interesting few months, as I begin a series of surgeries and extensive medical procedures... More as it happens.

  • The Falcon Takes Over. Ward Bond played escaped convict Moose Malloy, a huge goon of a guy who strangles those who've wronged him.
