  • Bob, I think that when I first entered my age in the poll, I may have been in the previous age group, but I just turned 61 in December myself.


    I'm real happy to see all the 'youngsters' though - it means Duke's memory should live on for a good long time!


    Ned, I think most who are 90+ years old are probably not using a computer . . . :wink_smile:. I know that one of our members, Harold, is over 80. He hasn't been around for awhile, though . . . .

  • my grandma is 89 years old and she likes John Wayne but after spending 60 years with my grandad watching Duke films she's bound to like him :wink_smile:

  • Newbie on here but old enough to have seen most of Johns movies when they first came out. Born in 1940 if that tells you anything. John stood tall for what he believed in and let you know up front where he stood. Did not start a fight but didn't back down either. Man's man and treated the ladies even the saloon girls like ladies. Didn't have to use cuss words to get his point across either. Clean, direct and loyal to his friends, we can all learn from that in this day and age.

  • I grew up on a ranch so don't think I am exactly a tenderfoot, did my share of roping and branding as a teenager, had my own horse, the whole bit.....miss those days a lot.

  • I'll admit when I was younger I didn't like Duke. In fact, he kind of drove me crazy for some weird reason. But, as I grew into a young woman, I started to notice the shortage of men who treated women like ladies. When I watched a lot of Duke's movies I felt honored by the way he treated the women in them. Gradually I started to really appreciate his acting skills, too.

  • Fascinating results! I suspected at 52 I would be one of the youngsters here. Of course, you have to wonder how many older Wayne fans are that savvy to hop on a computer. So encouraging to see younger folks drawn to the legend. Love it!!!

  • hi,


    just thought that i should add my son to your list of fans of dukes but he falls outside your list at being only 6 my dad likes dukes movies but he don't live with me and he is 63, we have a joint collection and when he kicks the bucket (dies) all the collection come to me and the little bloke


    cheers smokey

    Hi Smokey,


    Is your son still a fan of the Dukes?

    Regards
    Robbie

  • I know when that poll was first put up, our son was also too young (like smokey's). He is 21 now and I think he would consider himself a John Wayne fan still. Maybe it IS time to update the poll. I know I was in a different age bracket back in 2003.


    Maybe an idea to make the poll more "timeless" would be to put brackets of birth years instead of age brackets. My birth YEAR won't change over time, but certainly my age bracket will.
