  • Have not been here much lately, but would love to start getting more involved again with members

  • Great clip...Duke's sense of comedy really shines through here. (* Bet he was hoping the score to Airport would have won *)

    This film, along with Reunion In France, are the only two films in John Wayne's long career, that I can never bring myself to watch again. All three leads were just too old to play the parts of such juvenile characters. This was painful obvious during the meeting with the Mexican family. The good news...the end of this film would mark the start of probably his greatest 10-year stretch of his moviemaking career.

    This was originally posted back in December 2006 on the HTF. According to a post on DVD Times Forum, Movies Unlimited say that Weinstein have acquired the rights to the Samuel Bronston epics Fall Of The Roman Empire, El Cid, 55 Days At Peking and Circus World and plan a mid-2007 DVD release. So far, Fall of the Roman Empire and El Cid have gotten the deluxe treatment. 55 Days and Circus World should be completed by the end of this year, or early next.

    I first watched it on Laserdisc back in the early 90s. It was released in it's proper widescreen ratio, with 6 channel stereo seperation. Like others have mentioned, the film loses a lot when you see it on VHS, because you are losing so much of the picture image. I currently own the DVD from France, which is really the only good version out there right now (the Asian ones are full screen as well). But the good news is that Disney recently purchased the rights to all the Bronston epics, and Circu…

    Hi Elly, I would love for the 70mm version to be released onto DVD! And according to IMDB, the original film ran over a 150 minutes long. How great would it be to see the extra 30 minutes of the movie, that now appear lost. And Elly, as I'm guessing you realized from your second post, there is no pan-and-scan version of The Big Trail...just the alternately-shot 35mm version. Both were framed and shot in their respective proper ratios (with the 35mm version being the one released to DVD currently…

  • Quote from DukePilgrim: “The only other fact that I know about Stewart was that he parted company pretty disgracefully with director Anthony Mann after a dispute with how much credit Mann was getting for invigorating Stewart's career with the westerns he made with him in the 1950s. Ironically after the rift neither of them enjoyed the success they had when they worked as a team.” I had read that Mann was unhappy with the weak script that was 'Night Passage', and he wanted it reworked before shoo…

  • I just finished reading her bio. I enjoyed the first half of the book quite a bit, but found the second half to grow increasingly odd. Her run-ins with John Ford were down right creepy, yet she constantly tells us how much she still loves him. Telling us about who's sexual orientation is who's was also odd. She seemed to relish in tossing dirt around, and yet could not understand when it got tossed back at her. All in all, I'm glad I read it. It does not alter my perception of her as one of John…

    Finally watched Seven Sinners last night. Although it's mostly a vehicle for Dietrich, John Wayne does very well with what he has to work with. And it was a plesant surprise to see Duke's co-star from 'The Sea Spoilers' three years prior, in the movie. The young Lt. from that film, who get's command of Duke's Coast Guard ship from his Dad's appointment, plays a minor role as one of the Navy men in this film. Oh, and by the way, I did see where Duke tells Dietrich to look deep into his honest blu…

    Well gt12pak, seeing as it's been almost a week, and no one else has given it a try, why don't you put the answer out. Let's see if you've got it...

    A film I enjoying watching over and over again. It is said that upon completion, the film ran close to 3 hours, but was cut down to under 2 hours by the studio. I would very much like to see that first cut of the film, but I'm sure all that footage is long gone now. Thanks for the link, I enjoyed seeing the movie again in still pictures.

    Just watched this last night, and have to say, it's one of Duke's best early 1940 films. The film proves that even at John Wayne's relatively early age, given the right dialog and director, he was a top-notch actor. Going toe-to-toe with the great Walter Pigdeon must have been intimadating for Duke, but he carries his scenes off very well. Extremely entertaining western...made even better by the excellent cast, great script, and a proven director. I'll give this one 8 out of 10 stars!

    I would have voted for 'The Quiet Man', as she was wonderful in that...but I just finished watching 'How Green Was My Valley', so I voted for that one, as a sentimental favorite.

  • Hmm...that is a very good question. I think he would have done a good job in two of Tom Hanks's films from the 1990s: 1) He would have been a natural for 'Saving Private Ryan', but I'm sure he would have been very upset about all the violence portrayed in that film. 2) I also think he would have done well in 'Apollo 13'. Keeping his crew together, while facing impossible odds, is a role that would have been perfectly suited for him.

    Quote from gt12pak: “Senta I agree with you. I was just going with the flow. I think this is a cool game, but perhaps there needs to be some rules here such as PM'ing the answers to whoever comes up with the quote and maybe a set amount of time to guess before the answer is given.” Not really...the game works best when everyone tries to guess their answers in a public forum. Once the correct response is given, the person who put out the quote out confirms it's right. After that, another person p…

    Quote from ethanedwards: “Gritty movies like The Life of Jimmy Dolan vanished until after the demise of the Production Code in the early 1960s. What movies Hollywood would have made if not for rigid censorship for over 25 years is an unanswerable question. Warner Bros. pre-code sound movies indicate that older movies made before censorship have dated a lot better than much of the drivel released during the Breen censorship period. ” What utter hogwash. Basically, this person from IMDB is stating…

    Yes, 'Tall In The Saddle' was the film. One of my all-time favorite scenes....John Wayne walking deliberately down the street towards a drunken Harry Woods. Woods starts to reach for his 6-shooter, and Duke utters the immortal line (while continuing to walk right at him!). Just a great scene from a great film! Okay, how about someone else throwing a line out...

  • Okay, let's get this started again. In which film did Duke speak the line: "Touch that gun and I'll kill you"

  • Quote from gt12pak: “Okay guys. I guess I've kept you waiting long enough. That quote came from Reunion in France. Thanks for playing and let's get another quote from someone else.” Ha...it's no wonder I didn't know it. I saw that film once in the mid-80s, and after it was over, told myself never to watch it again. And guess what...I never have. I consider it to be one of the worst films John Wayne has ever appeared in, and that includes all his 1930's B western turkeys!

  • Quote from chester7777: “Well, here's guess number 2 - Pittsburgh.” Hmm...I agree partly with that, in thinking that Duke was saying it to Dietrich. But I'm gonna guess an earlier movie - Seven Sinners

  • Quote from gt12pak: “Here's the complete line... You don't want to know, I'm Superman. Oh, I gotta shake those monkeys...I gotta shake'em and get some sleep. I've gotta have sleep...Why won't they believe we're in love...what's so unusual about that?,,,don't we look like....(crunch)?” Wow...I consider myself a pretty huge John Wayne fan, and for the life of me, I have no idea what film that line is from.
