      It seems like there was some interest in doing this, but I know Colorado Bob is a pretty busy guy, so I don't think he'd mind if I revive this thread.

      In order to give everyone an equal chance to get credit for knowing their John Wayne trivia, I'd like to use the same model that dukefan1 has used in the What's on TV? thread. Those who want to play can PM me with your answers, and in a week I'll post the correct answers and the names of those who got it right.

      Here's the first question -

      John Wayne generally wore a cowboy hat in most of his westerns, but donned a coonskin cap in a number of his films. Name four.

      Hi Chester

      Its probably my lack of knowledge on this subject but I was always pretty certain he only wore this type of hat in three movies, can you confirm that there are at least four movies in which he wears this type of hat?

      In a word . . . yes. :wink_smile: All four titles are available (although I can't say with certainty that they are available in all regions).

      I thought I should offer this hint - in one of the four titles, he doesn't wear a coonskin cap throughout the movie, but he is definitely seen in that same movie with a coonskin cap at one point in the movie.

      I posted the question on Friday morning, and I was figuring I could put up the answer in a week, next Friday morning. That would give folks time to research or watch movies, if they want to. But I am open to suggestions - none of this is cast in stone.

      Howdy, y'all!

      I apologize for getting back to this a little late. Been dealing with some stuff around home that is rather time-consuming. Anyway, just as a reminder

      Four people ventured out on this, and each one got three of the four films, which were

      The Big Trail
      Allegheny Uprising
      The Fighting Kentuckian
      The Alamo


      The Big Trail was the one that no one guessed. Quite frankly, we had to watch it again to confirm that Duke wore a coonskin cap in it, as every picture we found showed him in a regular hat. However, in a flashback scene in the movie, he is indeed wearing a coonskin cap.

      Thanks to Hondo Duke Lane, arthurarnell, wbbison, and Robbie for playing this first game!!

      Now, for the second question -

      In what film did Duke co-star with two single-named actors, in what year did the film's story take place, and where (location) in the movie did he meet his leading lady?

      Don't forget to PM the answer to me by next Sunday morning (I want to give everybody a week to answer; I'll eventually figure out if one day of the week works out better for me than another).

      Have fun!

      Here are the answers to last week's question -
      The film was North Alaska.
      His single-named co-stars were teen idol Fabian and French actress Capucine.
      The story takes place in 1900, during the Alaska gold rush.
      He met Michelle/Angel (played by Capucine) in a dance hall/bordello in Seattle.

      Of the three responses, one person got all four parts correct, and that was dukefan1!

      Way to go, Mark!

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


      Here's question number three -

      John Wayne was responsible for recommending James Arness for the role of Marshall Matt Dillon in TV's Gunsmoke.
      Name the John Wayne movies in which James Arness appeared with Duke.


      Don't forget to PM the answer to me by next Sunday (I want to give everybody a week to answer; I'll eventually figure out if one day of the week works out better for me than another).

      Have fun!
