    I suspect this Pat Berman, the review writer of the Shootist, for the Columbia Record, is more than likely just another liberal newspaper writer.
    Fortunately, in this day and age, folks are waking up, and the newspaper owners wonder where all the people that buy newspapers went.

    Yes We are very happy Duke's last movie is The Shootist, the great western movie filled with his gentlemanship.

    Great observation!

    We appreciate the film as a fitting end to a long and illustrious cinematic career. The character, and the man who played him, were very human in their response to great pain, but both gracious gentlemen as well.

    I will have to pull out my copy of The Shootist and watch it to see if we can answer your question, but in the meantime, I would like to welcome you to the John Wayne Message Board!

    As far as I know, you are our first and only member from Japan. You've expanded our scope to another continent!

    We hope you will take a moment and introduce yourself to us in the Newbie Forum.

    Again, WELCOME!

    AMEN to that, brother!

    As you might guess from the comments above, this film ranks near the top of our list of JW movies. It is a classic, and truly a fitting final film for this great actor.

    Deep Discount DVD offers this film individually as well as part of two different collections, and also some movie posters.

    Amazon has the newer release of The Shootist that is part of Paramount's John Wayne Collection (Deep Discount doesn't). Amazon also has the book on which the movie is based, as well as several collections which include this film.
