    • Re: Articles About John Wayne

      And yet another article that caught my eye, "Would John Wayne approve of Cowboys & Aliens?"



      Brendan Wayne keeps wondering what his granddad would think of Cowboys & Aliens....

      Brendan figures his grandfather would have initially been incredulous. "He would probably do as I did and ask, 'What's the name of this thing?' - and ask about five times more."


      But he also believes the grandfather he adores would have kept his mind open to the idea of a science-fiction western.
    • Re: Duke's Famous Grandchildren- Brendan Wayne

      Found another article in the same vein, but with a few minor differences. "'Cowboys & Aliens' features John Wayne's Grandson in a role that might have surprised the Duke"

      “I didn't get the John Wayne concept,” Brendan Wayne said. “I thought that was granddaddy, and didn't everybody's granddad ride horses and stuff?”


      He remembers thinking of the man as “a big, goofy, you know, granddad ... just a really gentle, sweet, funny guy.”

      “I was on the set of ‘The Shootist,' and I thought, ‘Oh, I betcha other people's parents and grandparents, this is where they worked.' Like, you know, this is normal. It wasn't until he passed that I was, like, Oh wait, he was a little more extraordinary than I had thought.

      It started when he was sick and everybody at school was writing him get-well cards. And I went to Catholic school. I said to the nun, I said, ‘Sister Roberta Ann, my best friend Tony, his grandpa was sick, and the whole school didn't write him cards.'

      You know, I think Harrison's in this movie, to be honest with you, because he's the closest thing we have to that character type. He's as tough as they get.
      I find it interesting that the publicity department chose to play up the John Wayne angle.
