    • "Pretty Red Wings"

      I'm old, so my memory might be fooling me, but I seem to recall Duke singing "Pretty Red Wings" in two or three movies. I've searched elsewhere, but found nothing. Recently, I watched "War of the Wildcats" ( aka "In Old Oklahoma" ), and he sang it about three times! I was thrilled. Does anyone know of any other movies he sings it in? I always had the impression that he liked that tune.

      Hi Richard,

      the only other movie was

      The Comancheros (1961) = “Redwing” (sung by Wayne himself)
