I and my Dad knew John Wayne very well and the two women he also married. Since my Dad was in charge of movies and writing daily news paper and Hollywood reports John had him come to his home and then the airport was named after him too.

An actor that you couldn't get sick of any of his movies the way he walked with that swagger and the saying "That'll Be the Day" also in his movies they all weren't action a lot had comical touch like McLintock Rooster Cogburn,Hatari,North To Alaska, that one is one of favourites

He was working as a propertuy man in a pirate's movie filmed near Santa Catalina island,. when the leading lady fell overboard. While all the xcast watches in awe, he dived and brought her up to be rescued. Director Raouls Walsh said that the movies needed REAL heroes, like him and not pansies. He made "Stagecoach" but then filmed lots of two-reelers before becoming a real movie star.

He got that bracelet, he wore frequently, from the people of Vietnam while filming or shortly after filming the "Green Berets". It was a gift to him & he valved it highly. He can be seen wearing it in many of his films.

This brilliant Actor was always my favourite I will never understand why the Alamo although wasn’t the complete true story which he produced directed and starred in was not a box office hit must have seen the film lots and lots of times nether the less the man is a legend R I P

Shaun O'Donoghue, It's true--My Dad was in the Marines and he said they had them drive threw after the bomb went off (not sure how long after} and they were behind hills of sand, with their backs turned and capes thrown over their heads--and went it went off he could see the bones in his hand. You tell me that didn't contribute to a lot of health problems. Mistakes were made and they didn't know enough and sent these men into something that changed their lives forever. My Dad had problems and contributed to an early death. Guinea pigs is what I called it.
