    This is the first JW western I can remember watching. Despite it not being one of his best performances, it is still one of my favorites. I recall having a crush on Patrick Wayne and loved him with the mustache. I would love to have a remastered version on DVD with the cut footage.

    I watched Red River last night for the first time. Great movie, but the 2 women they had in the movie were very irritating. I suppose that might have been the opinion of women when this was made: talkative, a bit loopy and slightly aggravating. I can understand their roles, but they should have been way better written.

    I could never dislike a movie with Ms. O'Hara in it. It had it's moments and was pleasureable enough to watch. Of course it isn't one of the greatest, but it is good enough.

    JW is an icon, a hero, an American who proud as hell of it and this bothers people. They have serious JW envy and since they can never be like him, they are bent on bothering fans and trying to damage his image. Thanks for clearing the mess so quickly.

    I watch a lot of horror movies and, when I used to read more, was a huge Stephen King fanatic. The ones that get me are the zombie movies. For some reason, I always end up with nightmares about zombies.

    Nothing fancy, taking the kids trick or treating. We decorated a little. I wanted to carve a pumpkin with my son, but he is afraid of Jack-o-lanterns. Maybe next year.

    I was invited here by a member I am familiar with from another JW board where a troll runs rampant. Thanks for the welcome and I hope you are fully recovered. I can tell you that my husband makes fun of me because I am a Duke fan. He has learned to hold his tongue now. LOL

    Hard choice, but The Quiet Man is my all time favorite Duke movie. It is funny and romantic and manly all at the same time. One of my favorite lines is in this movie.
    Thorton: "If you say three, mister, you'll never hear the man count ten" Love it. Maureen is beautiful, as always.

    I just wanted to add my bday to your great list. I fall into the younger, but not youngest catagory. I was born in '77 and grew up on JW movies. I can think of few things better than spending a Sat. or Sun. with a JW marathon on the tv.

    The Cowboys is one of the finest movies I have seen. These children set out boys, but come home men. They learned of integrity, hardwork, betrayal, loyalty, the pain of losing a friend and losing a mentor, and the good and bad of human nature. These men took it upon themselves to right a wrong facing bad men and bad odds. Loved every minute of it.

    I have to say that The Longest Day is by far my favorite of the Duke's war movies. The cast is supurb, and the acting is excellent. One of my favorite of JW's lines is from this movie. When he is on the ship and is addressing the men "You can't give the enemy a break. Send 'em to hell." That line chills me.
