    You are probably thinking about the movie being made of the TV show "Veronica Mars" that raised millions using Kickstarter. Kickstarter is one avenue that I have thought about using, along with all the cowpokes here talking about they haven't had a good fundraiser in a while. I really don't think the money being raised is as much of an issue at this point, it's getting NBC Universal who owns the copyright, to allow it to be restored and released. I have already brought this up to them and it's fallen on deaf ears most of the time. I have received a few emails back with some glitter of hope attached, but not a resounding go ahead with our blessing. A little while back (Elly I believe) posted that we all should flood NBC Universal and Roni Lubliner with emails concerning this. What everybody should do is flood them with emails asking if they would consider helping with the release of Adventure's End if we raised the money for it to be restored, no matter what the condition of the master at LOC!

    Yes, Kickstarter, that's it. I have no idea of how much it would cost to remaster a film, but if a 'Kickstarter' could offset costs and they would make money selling the discs, it seems like a 'no brainer' to me. Why wouldn't they. And even as you say, no matter what the condition of the master is.

    This place is definitely one that is on my bucket list to visit. One of my co-workers was there 4 years ago and loved it. We have to try to decide what time of year is best to visit.

    A bit late, but it's the first time I've seen this clip, so thanks. One thing's for sure. I would have loved to have dropped back a tequila or three with Duke.

    Wow, I have just read through this entire thread. I have to wonder why anyone (person or organization) would want to hold back any copies of any of John Wayne film for any reason. I simply cannot understand why every effort wouldn't be made to get it out to the public. Reading earlier threads about money, surely there would be support to get this done for those films that may be able to be restored. I forget the name right off the bat, but I have recently seen millions raised by fans to make a movie. Maybe that same thing can be done for a John Wayne film.

    Thank you for posting that short clip from the first AFI awards. It is the first time I have seen that and to get to see and hear John Ford's speech was really something. I am going to have to search around to see if the broadcast is available to watch anywhere. Thanks again. I'll save the other clips for later.

    The last non-western John Wayne film I watched was Brannigan. I liked the setting being in London. I think it would have been nice if he had made more movies in different locations. Come to think of it, Brannigan could have become a franchise character doing cases in different cities outside of the States.

    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.
