Posts from William T Brooks in thread „Big Jim McLain (1952)“

    I have not seen this film in years. This film was done at a Very Different time in U.S. and World History and many of the People in Hollywood did not Like The Film Or John Wayne The Duke. We thought that the U.S.S.R. and The Chinese Communist were coming Very Soon! :fear:

    But in the early 1950s when it was Filmed it was Very Difficult Time in the World. :( The U.S.A. had used the A-Bomb to End W.W. 2 and the U.S.S.R at this time had the Bomb also and We were afraid they were going to use it on the U.S.A. :fear2:

    Most of the People Outside of Hollywood Liked the Film. At that time Hollywood was Loaded With Card Caring Communist and Duke was One of the People that was Leading the Charge against the Communist in Hollywood in the U.S. at this time. :cowboy::D

    I know a little about this time in U.S. History as I was Flying in one of those B-29s at this time With One Of "Those Bad Things Aboard" and Thought That We would be Ordered to Drop it At Any Time on the Target that We had been Given Earlier in the U.S.S.R. :dead:
