  • That is a really tough question, my 5 movies would be as follows:

    1. The Searches.
    2. Wake of the Red Witch
    3. 3 Godfathers
    4. Rio Bravo
    5. The Quiet Man



  • The Conqueror
    Jet Pilot
    Reunion in France
    A Lady for a Night.

    These are the five Duke Movies that would inspire me to leave wherever it is I am, and go to a place that lets me have more than five movies!!!:evilgrin:


    Seriously, my five would be...
    "Rio Bravo" (or El Dorado, either one will do)
    "True Grit"
    "The Searchers"
    "The Comancheros"

  • Whoa!! You had me going there for a minute!! I was relieved to see your five at the bottom of the post! :biggrin:

  • The Alamo - widescreen director's cut only
    The Searchers
    She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
    El Dorado
    Rio Bravo

    Duke gave his finest performances as Ethan Edwards and Nation Brittles.
    Rio Bravo and El Dorado are two variations of a fun theme with co-actors who manage to hold their own against Wayne's formidable on screen presence.
    The Alamo is magnificent to see large and the fulfillment of all Duke's dreams.
    I could watch these any time, any place.

    We deal in lead, friend.

  • I'll go with-

    The Alamo (definitely director's cut-a must have)
    Big Jake
    The Shootist
    The Searchers
    The Quiet Man

    These I watch the most, but love 'em all-

  • Bringing this back, since I havent' seen this thread, so here is mine if I'm only to have 5 John Wayne videos only in my collection.

    1. The Quiet Man
    2. Rio Bravo
    3. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    4. The Searchers
    5. Sands of Iwo Jima

    Had to get one war picture of his, as well as his greatest and my favorite Duke film, then just able to pick three westerns, that is almost impossible, but the three IMO are his best westerns.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo
