Just curious Ringo could you explain how you became a John Wayne fan? You told us the first movies you watched . . . .
I don't know, Hondo, but it sounds like a simple case of immersion to me. He almost couldn't help himself !
If I remember correctly from the many of TRK's posts I've read, Ringo's in his late thirties, which would mean he was born during the Duke's last decade of making movies. He got "drug" to the theatre to see most of the movies in his first paragraph, as a young child. You get to the late seventies, when cable TV came into his life, and if an adult in one's life was really into John Wayne (as you have suggested, Hondo) and was taking full advantage of having those movies in the comfort of one's own home - even if you weren't a fan right off, you'd grow into one without hardly tryin'.
So c'mon, Ringo, give us a little more detail. . . . please?
