  • The PBS special "John Wayne Standing Tall" was only available on VHS for a limited time. Unlike many of their other biographies, this one was never released on DVD. I still have a VHS unit just for this reason. There are several movies that were only made available on VHS that have not been put on DVD or Blu-Ray. Case in point - the roadshow (extended version) of John Wayne's "The Alamo". If you don't have a VHS copy of it, you may never get a Blu-Ray or DVD copy because the film elements are so…

  • Duke: And I'm tellin' ya it's Susan Hayward, NOT Susan Hayworth. The fella that printed the lobby cards got it wrong. It just doesn't sit well with a girl when a fella gets her name wrong. You never know how she's gonna react.

  • Duke: The judges agree. You can't smile like me.

Those that I could not find here in the U.S. I was able to find from some European websites. One of the hardest to find was "Circus World" starring John Wayne, Rita Hayworth, and Claudia Cardinale. I believe it was Hayworth's last movie. It was also the movie being made when Duke was diagnosed with cancer the first time. He had been complaining of shortage of breath …

  • The movie is part of the Warner Archives collection and can be purchased from Amazon or Walmart online.

  • I was 4 years old when my father took our family to our first drive-in movie. The movie playing was "Hondo". I was lying on the deck of the rear window when it came on. Because it was a western, I was immediately enthralled. When Hondo picked up the kid and "taught" him how to swim impressed me enough that my brother and I went to a nearby pond and taught ourselves sometime later. But, when Duke said that Indians hated liars, that hooked me on him forever.
