  • I have a fairly large John Wayne collection, but I do have to say, that handful of 26 Bar dirt is one of my most cherished pieces. I know that sounds strange. I mean after all, it is just dirt. But it is where that dirt came from, and the memories of Chili Bill that are associated with it, that make it special to me.

  • Quote from Kevin: “Stumbled on this old thread. @Colorado Bob I believe you got your 26 bar dirt in the end. ” I did Kevin, I did. I have it in a nice container and sitting on one of my John Wayne Memorabilia shelves. It may be just a handful of dirt, but it's actually kind of special to me.

  • Howdy Stranger! The place looks pretty good since the last time I moseyed in!

  • [FONT=Liberation Serif, serif]The Harris Poll results are in and the top ten have been announced, and once again John Wayne has made the list, but he is steadily dropping towards the bottom. According to the Harris article, “At number 7, dropping one spot, is the only actor who has been on the list since it first began in 1994, John Wayne.” Number 7. Only three from the bottom and only four slots from being off the list altogether. I read an article the other day that said Duke's image is fading…

  • Hi Keith, I wish I could remember what site I found these on, so I could give credit where credit is due, but I think it may have been one of the French sites that Lasbugas goes to. At any rate, here are the pics: dukewayne.com/index.php?attach…7a4f0fd5da95efec7e1e6d4ecdukewayne.com/index.php?attach…7a4f0fd5da95efec7e1e6d4ecdukewayne.com/index.php?attach…7a4f0fd5da95efec7e1e6d4ecdukewayne.com/index.php?attach…7a4f0fd5da95efec7e1e6d4ec

  • Howdy All, I am stumped! I came across some photos of the set of El Dorado, and the cast and crew were celebrating a boys birthday. The boys name is Sam. In one of the photos, you can clearly see John Wayne, James Caan, Charlene Holt, Michelle Carey, R.G. Armstrong, Howard Hawks and Christopher George, as well as several of the crew, all singing happy birthday to this kid. Does anyone know just who this kid was? Was he the son of a cast or crew member? I have searched and searched for an answer,…

  • Howdy ansanaut, and welcome to the JWMB. I would think that you would be able to contact Luster Bayless at United American Costume and with the identification number on the tag, be able to identify which film or TV show, or appearance Wayne wore the shirt for. I have to be honest and say that it doesn't strike me as something Wayne would have worn in his westerns, as he purposely tried to avoid wearing these types of shirts, choosing instead to wear clothing that was more common to the everyday …

  • Quote from chester7777: “THIS article was posted on Yahoo Movies on Friday, March 28, though I just saw it this morning. I thought y'all might find it interesting.” I saw it as well, and found it interesting also. But there is at least one thing that is incorrect in the article. The name on John Wayne's death certificate is not "Marion Mitchell Morrison" as the article says. The name on his death certificate is the same name as is on his birth certificate (and I have copies of both), and that na…

  • Quote from Hawkswill: “Lost my post, LOL. It was there, now it is gone. Don't know what Louis looks like CB, but sure doesn't look like Duke. He rode a horse sort of like that when he was very young in B movies. Also, if that is a holster...........don't think he ever wore one like that. KEITH” Hi Keith, Of course, you know a lot more about horses than I do, but isn't that a Palomino? I don't remember John Wayne riding one. Of course, I could very well be wrong, and the horse may have been provi…

  • Quote from Hawkswill: “Paula, you sure that isn't SON behind Yates LOL...sure looks a bit like him! Right kind of shirt or jacket and hat also, isn't it? KP” I think you're right Keith! I am wondering if this photo was taken at the Field Photo farm that John Ford had set up. If it is, then this is the first photo I have seen of one of their shindigs that Ford had out there every year.

  • Quote from lasbugas: “index.php” I could be mistaken, but I don't think this is John Wayne. Myself, I think it is Louis L'Amour. Just my opinion, though, and still a great photo!

  • I was only able to find two essays by Meeuf online that concerned John Wayne. I read them (and actually downloaded them as well). Both were well written and not difficult at all to understand. I don't think he is out to deface John Wayne's image at all, and I do believe he is a John Wayne fan as well. That being said, however, I also think that he does have a tendency (as do most intelligentsia of today) to lean towards a deconstructing of what they view as modern mythology. Not necessarily a ba…

  • Hello Russell and welcome to the JWMB! Your book looks very interesting and I hope to pick up a copy soon. Of course, without reading the book first, I cannot really comment on it, however, I did read the brief review on the University of Texas Press website and one of the statements really jumped out at me. It said, “Meeuf concludes that, in his later films, Wayne’s star text shifted to one of grandfatherly nostalgia for the past, as his earlier brand of heroic masculinity became incompatible w…

  • I'm not really sure exactly where to post this, but since it concern's John Wayne's 1936 film, The Oregon Trail, I figure here might be good place. I came across this article today from BBC news magazine. It's a good read, and the article contains a couple of links to clips of John Wayne interviews (including part of the Parkinson interview from 1974). All I can say regarding the article is, What A Find! Here's the URL: bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24407455

  • Quote from chester7777: “If someone has already posted this, please accept my apologies (I tried searching for it and didn't find it). I just learned of the video today, I guess it was posted by the Richard Nixon Foundation on YT less than a month ago. VERY moving . . . John Wayne is mentioned right after the 3 minute mark.

    I read the preview of the book available on Amazon, and that was enough for me to decide it was a load of garbage. I did a review of it on my John Wayne fansite, and that got a nasty response (and I do mean nasty) from Richard Jensen (the "author" of the book). So I did a little digging and found out that his publisher, which is Raymond Street Publishers, was founded by some outfit in Oklahoma called "The Writers of the American West." As I dug farther, I found out that both of these are dummy c…

  • Quote from lasbugas: “The cruel fate of "Marguerita" John Wayne's yacht August 26 at 07:41 by Pierre Delhom "Marguerita" is a boat with singular lines and outdated, but it is primarily the name of a young woman loved by the most popular actors of the United States in his time: John Wayne .................................................. lindependant.fr/2013/08/26/por…de-john-wayne,1785028.php” I read the article linked here, and according to it, John Wayne once owned this yacht, the Marguerita,…

  • I have just read that Valentin de Vargas, who played Luis in Hatari passed away on June 10th. He was in a lot of films and television programs, and a great character actor. In addition to Hatari, he was in Touch of Evil and The Magnificent Seven. dukewayne.com/index.php?attach…7a4f0fd5da95efec7e1e6d4ec "My name is Luis Francisco Garcia Lopez"

  • Quote from Kevin: “I commend your efforts, but have you reached out to Bill's family, maybe his son about doing this? They may find comfort in knowing Bill had shared all this online. Sent from my Galaxy S III using Forum Runner” That's a great idea Kevin, but I have no idea how to get into contact with them. If anyone knows how to contact Bill's family, please send me a PM with that info. Thanks!

  • Quote from The Irish Duke: “I love that your doing something to keep Bill's memory going Bob, like Keith said if you need any help you only need to ask” Thanks Irish! Right now, I think the biggest hurdle is getting all the webpages of his site sorted out and to see just what I've got, and then I need to figure out how to format them and what presentation to use. I would like to have each of the stories accessible via an index of sort. I currently use weebly to host my website, and they offer se…

  • Oh, I'll be taking it slow. In fact, I can't do much else! Every time I try to do something, I end up getting in trouble. Lol! But Oh well, it is what it is. I have been spending a lot of time outside "supervising" and when I get tired out, I come in and work on Chili Bill's stuff. I never dreamed he had so much up on his website! But I am determined to get this done and get it done right. I really liked Bill, and I want to do right by him (although it will be hard at times because some of his s…

  • With regard to Chili Bills posts, such as his many stories and such, I think most of them were links to pages on his own website where he had already posted photos and stories. Unfortunately, that website (26bar something or other.com) has been closed and none of the pages exist. I even checked the cached pages, but to no avail. That being said, however, I do have a solution. Several years ago (approximately 2007 or 2008), my big brother Jess copied each and every page from Chili Bill's website …
