We miss “The Duke” for his wit and humor!

November 24, 2013

John Wayne was always my favorite actor from childhood until today. He never played a perfect man. His flaws and problems in the films he portrayed the struggle of a common man. His courage made him heroic, not some computer graphics magic. Best of all, he loved to irritate the self appointed intelligentsia of ivy league universities. Yes, he knew they rated him as a boob and simple minded man always waving “the flag”.

It was a golden age of Hollywood to have him with great characters like Ward Bond, Richard Boone, and my favorite Victor McLaglen! These folks got the pleasure of being children affected by THE DEPRESSION and then WWII as entertaining during trying times. The know it all 1960’s flower power crowd did not slow down The Duke!

No apologies  or shades of gray on the truth!
