  • Thank you, ever so much. It doesn't have me standing in front of it with a big toothy smile like mine should have, but it's the next best thing! Mark

  • No, I didn't know about Old Tucson. Sad to hear that, as well. Probably with the new generation, interest dwindled quite a bit. I was planning to finally make the trip to Monument Valley at the end of last year, but because of Corona (I caught it), the idea was put away again. Hopefully I can get that dream realized one day soon. The closest I ever came to anything from a Duke film was when I saw the War Wagon sitting on a spot in Universal Studios, Florida. It was missing the turret but was sti…

  • I love reading little tidbits about his films, and can't wait to get the book. On your site, I saw that the Mill from The Shepherd of the Hills can be seen in the background of the picnic scene from North to Alaska. Also that the scene from True Grit, where they made camp and La Beouf shoots the Turkey was actually right next to the field where the final shootout was filmed. Tidbits like this interest me. I can't imagine the hard work and time you had put into this and I can't wait to read it! A…

  • After visiting your website and taking a looksee, I went and ordered the book. I wish you luck, Itdo! May it become the must have for any Duke collector! Mark

    Hello Wanda! Jump in and enjoy the forum! Mark

  • Very, very nice! I love those pistols! I bet your Dad treasured that autograph as much, if not more than all the ones he got from others over the years. You have some strong willpower for not opening and sampling at least one of those bourbon bottles! Many thanks for sharing these with us! Mark

  • Hello, my fellow Marylander! That's great that you have signed pictures of Duke. I would have loved to have one of his autograph cards that he handed out to fans. Please, feel free to share the images with us, if you want to. Never get enough of Duke! Mark

  • In Harms Way (1965)

    Post

    Hello and welcome to the forum, OriginalMexicanBob! I never read the script, but I have read the book from which the movie was based on, and the character of Admiral Torrey was dignified and a bit understated. He was all duty who lived to be Navy. I thing Duke did an impressive job bringing Torrey to life on the screen. Your theory may be plausible, but I don't remember ever reading this in the books I have read over the years. I agree about the special effects being sub par. You never see any p…

    Hello and welcome to the board, Arizona1974. I only got to see The Shootist on the big screen, but it was a drive in, so the screen was really big! Mark

  • The Quiet Man (1952)

    Post

    I saw that little tidbit, as well. But if you read the whole thing, it says that the film will be in theaters April Fool's Day, 2022. So, I'm wagering that it was meant as an April Fool's Joke. Please....please let it be an April Fool's joke! Mark

    I don't know about the Elvis casting idea, but I do remember reading that Ricky Nelson was used in the film to draw a younger crowd to the film. It would have been cool seeing Elvis try that roll! The King and The Duke? I would have paid to see it. Mark

    Hello and welcome to the forum! That's quite a list. Don't forget Fabian -- North to Alaska, Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin -- Rio Bravo. You can even add Carroll O'Connor -- In Harm's Way. Mark

  • The wife and I watched The Count of Monte Cristo. A very good revenge movie starring Jim Caviezel.

  • The Longest Day (1962)

    dukefan1 - - The 1960's

    Post

    I understood your point. For historical accuracy, Duke looked way too old for the part. But Zanuck knew if he wanted this war movie to be successful, he had to have Duke in it. They seem to be more into accuracy in today's films than they did back in the day. Movies are roasted now, if they are not accurate to history. It didn't seem as important back then.

    Darryl Zanuck wanted Duke for the part. He wanted him so bad, Duke drove up the price for the few days he filmed the roll. It was Duke's way of paying Zanuck back for comments Zanuck made about Duke producing and acting in The Alamo.

    Welcome to the forum, wayne.allington. If you love images of John Wayne, you came to the right place. We have a mamber, Lasbugas, who has collected many, many images and stills over the years and has a vast collection. He has generously shared them here with all us fans, and continues to add to them. You will find most inside each thread of the many films Duke made over his many years in Hollywood. I hope you enjoy looking around, and feel free to jump in anywhere. Mark

    I never noticed that, Wacco. I'll have to be on the lookout the next time I watch McLintock. Mark

  • That's awesome, Tbone! But I clicked on the link and it didn't work. I looked it up, and read about it. I think it would be great, but it is doubted that it will come to fruition because the new President will probably shelve it. Mark

    That is very cool that you knew someone who worked on one of Duke's greater films. I hope he told you a few stories of being around the set. When you said he was the one Campbell shot off the horse, do you mean he doubled for Duvall, as well? Mark
