    Thanks Chester,
    I did see on line that the John Wayne Alamo is closed now. I am very concerned and hope that maybe somebody can do something about this. I would hate for the new generations to not see this site, considering it was so important to the Duke.
    Maybe we can all get a petition going and send it to the surviving family members or however owns it now. I don't know, I think something needs to be done it is such an important place!!!

    Yes I have it on DVD, got it last Christmas. Everybody says it is a bad movie, I have to say it is not John Waynes best movie, but it isn't bad! How could it be with the Duke in it! HA

    I did see that they were closeing the John Wayne Alamo. How much and how long do they think it will take to re-open it? I feel very lucky to have gone to the site and was in seventh heaven, or course I am sure that anybody that loves John Wayne, this is a must see site. I am really hopeing they get it going again for other people to see and remember him, since it was his dream to make the picture. When I was there I was very touched just to be there and was luck enough to be there on a not so busy day. The reinactors spent several hours with my husband and I talking about the movies they were in and the actors themselves, I have never been anywhere were I felt more welcome in my life. They even sang me songs from Rio Bravo, which is one of my favorite westerns. I just hope it gets done and would like to, in some way help, so were do we go to contribute? I think keeping it open is VERY important, in keeping his memory alive.

    I like the movie and have to agree, anything with John Wayne in it is all right by me! But, I do have to say that casting Vera Miles in the part as John Wayne's wife did not work for me. It just did not click like when he works with Maureen O' Hara or Laureen Bacall. But, I do like the way Duke and Jim Hutton work off of each other. To bad they didn't make more films together.

    I really enjoy this movie, and if I am wanting to watch something that is fun and light hearted that is the movie that I always pick! Of course with having John Wayne and Maureen O' Hara in a movie who could go wrong! Thier chemistry in my opinon is one of the best on screen pairing out there!

    I love this movie, even if it makes me cry everytime I watch it. I think that is because you know that in real life that he is fighting cancer. But there again, that is the person he was, and that is why he is loved so much!

    I really like the movie "The Wings Of Eagles"!
    It reminds me, when I am down or going through something hard, that I can get through it. I feel like that is the way John Wayne was in real life, he faced everything head on, and that is the way I try to live my life! I am a great admirer of his honest courage and strength, and I think that is part of the reason why so many people still love him today!

    Hey all of you John Wayne Fans!
    I have been away for a while, and just wanted to say hi!
    Speaking of Chisum, I love the picture of John Wayne, on his horse on the hill, looking into the distance. This is how I always will remember the Great John Wayne! Does anybody know if there is a poster or picture out there of him in that manor?
    I have a room in my house dedicated to the Duke and have framed many pictures, this is my favorite room in my house, and shall we say peacful!!!
    Good to be back!

    Sorry, I have not been here very much, and my scanner went out before I could send you a picture. If you ever want to try and do it again, I will promise to send you a pic. I am sorry, I really wanted to be a part of it. If for some reason you decide to try again please look me up.


    Hey Hondo,

    Thanks for the information, at least I can put faces with the characters!

    And yes this is a very sad subject, there are not many of those older actors left.

    Thanks again Hondo


    Hey Hondo!

    Thanks for including me as a friend too!
    I haven't been around much lately, but I do love this John Wayne site!


    I have to agree with you guys. I don't really care for the spagetti westerns that Clint Eastwood made. I also don't like many of the really old black and white westerns. They are sooooo corny. I know this will make me the minority, and I know they were the start of westerns, I just think a lot of them are silly.


    Ok, I know I sound really dumb, and I know I have been away for some time, but need to know what parts some of those people played.

    George Plimpton - Rio Lobo (what character?)

    Sheb Wooley - Rio Bravo (what character?)

    Louise Platt - Stagecoach (what character?)

    Lyle Bettger - The Sea Chase (what character?)

    Just curious, if you know, I would like to know.


    I just went and saw Open Range this weekend, and I loved it!
    It is not John Wayne, but I thought it was really good and can't wait for it to come out on DVD! Until then I will also have to go see again!


    Hi Guys!

    Dukefan1, just wanted to let you know that I am a Kevin Costner fan too, so you are not alone!

    I was really excited to see a western coming out again!
    And I am glad to hear it is really good!
    I have been wanting to go see it, and know I can't wait to see it!
    Too bad they can't make westerns like John Wayne's westerns, I hope I am going to be plesantly surprised!


    I would love to know what Patrick Wayne is doing now, and what he looks like! I am sure he looks just like his Dad. In a previous question, someone was asking who they thought could play the Duke, if they did a movie about him, I sugested Patrick Wayne. Someone, I will have to look back, said that Patrick Wayne is know 61. And then they gave me an web page that shows Ethan Wayne!
    I do agree though, I would love to see Patrick Wayne again!

    Yes this is very sad of hearing about the passing of Katherine Hepburn. She was one of my favoite female actresses, along with Maureen O'Hara, Laurne Bacall. And I have to agree, it would have been nice to see Wayne and Hepburn make more movies together. They had their own chemistry that worked!

    This is sad

    Sorry it took me so long to respond to your post. Thank you for helping me remember the name of the "Cheynne Social Club," that was the one I was trying to remember!

    Thanks again

    Thanks Doug for the information.
    That is a bumber, it was so neat to see the areas were his films were shot. I loved going there, but like you said it just isn't going to be the same. Thanks for letting me know.
