What a great score, Paula......FanTAStic! KEITH
God, she reminds me of me! DUKE
Hard question, I always thought there was more to be seen from Dukes character in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon". He retires, he goes west, what adventures await him?? Just a thought.
This is from our opening post
'This was one of the performances which Wayne was proudest of for the rest of his life,
although he maintained that Ford made a mistake in not concluding the film with Brittles
retiring from the Army and riding off into the sunset.
Instead, Ford insisted on tacking on a less bittersweet ending,
with Brittles recalled back into the cavalry and given a promotion.'
So indeed it was intended he retired
My latest She Wore a Yellow Ribbon acquisition. We've all seen this photo before, but I really like this tinted version -- and it has Ben Johnson's autograph!
