  • Keith,

    I've thought of many of your different perspectives presented here at different times, but you have done a masterful job of bringing them all together in forceful way at the same time. Those early movies were his apprenticeship into the trade of acting.

  • Should that be "The Spoilers"?

    Yes, Robbie. The Spoilers and Pittsburgh had Scott, Dietrich and Wayne. Seven Sinners was just Duke and Dietrich.

    I enjoy Duke's B movies as well. Some may be a little corny, but they did help make our man who he became.

  • I don't consider Pittsburgh a "B" movie. When you have Randolph Scott and Marlene Dietrich as stars and of course John Wayne. And I did like the movie. If you want to see a great all-time fight, see Seven Sinners with the same cast. (ot) Yes, I am off topic, but just had to comment on what was said. Please get back to the topic (for me to do).

    Sorry, wasn't trying to say Pittsburgh was a B movie. Just saying that Wayne's B movies started me on to waiting for THE BIG FIGHT scene in all his subsequent pictures. So I was saying that when watching something that was ultimately more of a propaganda piece like Pittsburgh, I was still waiting for the fight scene and it delivered.


  • I made the same mistake as Dukefan1. I meant The Spoilers, instead of Seven Sinners. Sorry for the misinformation. I haven't seen these movies in a while. I will this weekend.

    Kain424, I may have made a mistake as well, I though you were talking about Pittsburgh being a "B" movie. I just wanted to be sure that it is not. Nothing personal, just wanted to clarify.

  • They are all gifts and are all wonderful to watch his early movies as a kid back in the days who would not want to emulate him I do the same now and I am in my 40's
