    Thnks everyone for the encouragement. I've been thinking for quite awhile about how I wanted it to look. I'll still have a lot that I want to add, so keep checking back. Amy

    Hey everybody. I've been working on a little tribute site. Please go and check it out. It's my first time building a site so it's a little elementary. Please give me your comments and suggestions, I would really like to make it special. Here's the link geocities.com/linzie23/. Amy

    I think this is a line that Ethan Wayne said to someone on the set. He was very young and that was what he called their spurs on their boots.

  • Worst John Wayne Film

    Post

    My choice for his worst film would have to go to a tie between McQ and Brannigan. I didn't like the story in either one. I didn't feel like the Duke was comfortable in the roles. I felt like the characters he played weren't strong enough for him to play them. I have both of them in my collection, but I don't choose them when I'm looking for something to watch.

  • Here is another reference to the Duke in new movies. I was watching a Guy Thing the other night. One of the characters tells everyone when they come to his house that he is a huge Duke fan. There is a scene later on in the movie where the whole family eats gravy with hash in it, and they start doing very poor impressions of the Duke. It's a pretty funny scene.

  • I would have to pick the Quiet Man. I listened to that soundtrack often and love it. I think that Victor Young did a superb job on this one.

    OK. I could really make this a long post. I agree with everyone else that he always looked awesome in his Navy dress whites. I also love when they show his legs in Donovan's Reef. There is another dancing scene in The Fighting Seabees I believe where he does the jitterbug, and quite well I might add. The cemetary scene in The Quiet Man could melt the heart of any woman. It's one of the best romantic scenes in any movie ever. It's not usually listed as one of his top films, but I've always though…

    I would also be interested. It would be another great bit of memorabilia to add to my collection. Let us know more details. Amy

    One thing that I look forward to every 4th of July is our town's fireworks. They always have music that accompanies the fireworks, and right before the grand finale they always play the Duke reading the Pledge of Allegiance. I love it. :lol: I would be so disappointed if they ever left that part out.

    I've been collecting magazines with the Duke on the cover and the Duke's comic books for a couple of years now. I have about 14 of them now. My favorite is an Australian movie magazine with a picture of the Duke and Patrick Wayne on the front of it from Rio Grande.

    One movie that I usually don't see on the favorites list for people is Without reservations. I really liked this film. I thought it was funny and romantic, there's pretty good screen chemistry between the Duke and Colbert. It's a pretty solid script and story, but it just seems to go unnoticed.

    That's probably the best thing to do. I get so irritated when they cut up the Duke's films. They take two and a half hours with commercials to show a movie that's only an hour and a half long , and then they still cut out a bunch of scenes.

    At the very end of the movie, Maureen's character is speaking. She says "310 times, without a miss".You can see the hat on the weathervane outside and Duke and Maureen embrace and then the scene fades out.

    Well, I just got my copy of the documentary, and it is really good. There are a lot of home movie shots with the Duke and Ford. Patrick Wayne gives both sides of the story on the discovery of Monument Valley. It was worth buying.

    I have always been a huge fan of Hepburn's. I wish her and the Duke could have made more than one film together. I have several of her movies in my collection so I'll have to go home and watch a marathon of them to pay respect. The actors of today just don't seem to match up to the legendary status and style of ones from Hollywood's past.

    I totally agree with you. I can remember being a kid watching the Duke's films for the first time. I can still feel the excitement when he would beat the bad guys, or make it through to the end of one of his war films. I still remember how I cried and cried when he died in Sands of Iwo Jima. I was maybe 12 or so. I had stayed up real late one night after everyone else was asleep to catch it on tv. I remember waking my dad up the next morning and telling him that I was never going to watch it aga…

    My favorite piece in my collection really isn't worth anything, but it means a lot to me. It's a little glass bottle that I filled with red sand when I went to Monument Valley. I just like to look at it, and think of all of the movies that the Duke shot there. It's such a beautiful piece of this Earth.

    My top 5 of the Duke's movies would be: 1. The Quiet Man 2. El Dorado 3. The Searchers 4. The Shootist 5. Sands of Iwo Jima

  • I guess I became a John Wayne fan when I was around 10 or 11. Every Sunday afternoon I would pile on the couch with my Dad and watch westerns. There was one channel on tv that would play westerns all day. We'd watch Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Maverick, Big Valley, and then they would always show a couple of western movies in the evening. The Duke was my Dad's favorite, and shortly became mine also. I started recording and collecting his movies. My Dad started my collection of memorabilia by giving me an…

    I love that line from The Quiet Man. Him and Maureen could say everything to each other with just a look. I also like when he picks a little flower from the grass and gives it to her. He doesn't say anything about it, and she just wraps her hands around it. It's a really touching scene.

  • One of my favorite scenes is the one at the end of Stagecoach when the Duke has a shoot out with the Plummer brothers. It has a great lead up to the scene when he is walking with Dallas, then the scene where Doc Boone takes Luke's gun, only to have one returned to him by his showgirl girlfriend. Then you see the shootout, but you don't know if Ringo survives. You get to see Dallas's reaction and then you see Ringo. It's a great scene.

    I know exactly how you feel Chester. I couldn't take it any more either, so I went on half.com and bought mine. I think I paid around $9 with the shipping. I already have this movie on DVD, but I just had to see this documentary. I should get it in a week. I hope it's worth it. I also bought this week on ebay a 1971 TV Special on VHS called The American West of John Ford. I haven't seen it, but I'm hoping it will be good. :lol:
