      Here's question number three -

      John Wayne was responsible for recommending James Arness for the role of Marshall Matt Dillon in TV's Gunsmoke.
      Name the John Wayne movies in which James Arness appeared with Duke.


      I guess I owe you guys an apology. I started this post last Monday, and somehow never hit the "Submit reply" button - got sidetracked somehow.

      Anyway, the answers to the above question are:

      Big Jim McLain (1952)

      Hondo
      (1953)

      Island in the Sky (1953)

      The Sea Chase
      (1955)

      Of the five response received, all five were correct. Congratulations to gt12pak, dukefan1, H.sanada, Jay J. Foraker, and ralphper, and thanks for playing!

      Now, here is this week's question -


      Impressionists invariably use the word "pilgrim" when doing John Wayne. Name two films in which Duke actually calls someone a pilgrim.

      Don't forget to PM the answer to me by next Sunday (I want to give everybody a week to answer; I'll eventually figure out if one day of the week works out better for me than another).

      Have fun!

      Well, I haven't exactly gotten very regular about keeping up with this quiz. Thanks to all of you who have been so patient, and to those who have played.
