I once had a magazine clipping of Mr. Wayne, without his hairpiece, signingng autographs for soldiers in Viet Nam. I loved The Duke since the first movie I ever saw him in, Three Godfathers, when I was just a kid. I'm now 77 and watch his movies every time I get the chance. I have so many favorites: Red River, Rio Bravo, The Quiet Man, The Searchers, Rio Grande, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,Fort Apache, so many....Just so many!!

Nobody, but Nobody else could represent the image of The Cowboy any better than John Wayne, The characters he played were the never back down type. They always stood their ground.

He was & still is one of my favorite actors, if not my #1 favorite actor today. He was discovered by John Ford & they became fast friends, making several movie together.

A far more complex man than it seemed. Chess, bookish and President of the Latin Club? Who'd guess. Bald was a surprise too. Good wig for those days.

John Wayne was a mans man the way he looked or how he kiss the ladies. My favorite movies were The Quite Man with Maureen O'Hara. They played go together.

John Wayne, his boyhood home and museum is in Winterset , Iowa. Can go there and watch his old movies all day long, look at some neat old cars he drove & othe items. . Yearly there is a celebration and often his daughters are there. Winterset is in Madison County where the Bridges of Madison County movie was made. I sat at the counter at a restaurant where Clint Eastwood sat.
