  • Thank you Dukefan, Kevin and Ethanedwards for the welcome. Thanks also for the book review Ethan. It was a page turner for me and I would think most Duke fans. The phone interviews got to a lot of people. Big stars and bit players alike. Guys like Fonda, Lee Marvin and Jimmy Stewart and guys like Claude Akins and Lee van Cleef.

  • Hi fellow Duke fans. I have just been accepted here and look forward to seeing what goes on around here. I have been a John Wayne for years and still enjoy watching his movies just like I did when I was young. The site looks very big so it is going to take a while to see everything.

  • Hi Guys,

    I am new to Duke Wayne message board. I have a little story and just thought it would be fun to share with everyone. My Grandpa Richard "Dick" Brown knew John Wayne. He sold an airplane to him and I have a news article from the Tustin, CA newspaper. My Grandpa owned Martin Aviation at John Wayne airport I think. I believe it was called Orange County Airport back then. My Grandma also told me they were in the same group of guys that would go down to Cabo San Lucas to go fishing for Marlin. Back then Cabo was just a fishing village. My Grandpa was a big marlin fisherman and also was a pilot so him and John had some similar interests.

    My Grandpa used to go by Dick, short for Richard. My Grandpa was also a pilot and did a lot of things. He passed away when I was just a boy unfortunately and I only have a few very fond memories of him. I thought maybe I met a friend of a friend in some distant was that maybe knew my grandpa.

    Attached is a photo for kicks.

  • Welcome to Mattie and all the other new folks I have missed welcoming. Bit swamped here, but I am sure you will learn a great deal and will see a good many very rare pictures. Nice pic of your grandpa and Duke. Have fun and pass on any stories you may have of Duke and your Grandpa's fishing trips. HAGO, KEITH

    God, she reminds me of me! DUKE
