Howdy UB

 

Yup, let's forget about Ghengis Kahn.

 

Couldn't bring up the second one labeled 'this'.

 

I expect it was Mc Q where he had a tiny snub nose .38 special in one shot that about vanished in his large hands... but Mc Q (it was the only film he made with John Sturges I think and is an OK film of its type I think)was not the mega stinker that "The Conqueror" was ... one of the worst big budget films of all time it has to be in the top 10 of that group. and of course many think that it played a part in the cancer that killed the Duke as it was shot in the mid 50s Near St Georges Utah which down wind of all the Atom bomb tests in Nevada

John Wayne regretted playing Temujin in The Conqueror (1956) so much that he visibly shuddered whenever anyone mentioned the film's name. He once remarked that the moral of the film was "not to make an ass of yourself trying to play parts you're not suited for."

For heaven's sake, don't mistake my post as a John Wayne slam.

Every actor has some films or TV appearances he/she would like to forget. No offense or umbrage, UB. It's funny to watch icons in their early films.

He will ~ and he'll shoot your eyes out so you "can't enter the spirit-land. (You will have) to wander forever between the winds."

 

Be careful what you say about the Duke :P

My hunch is that he and Ward Bond will be too busy with all the others to worry about UB. Sounds like John Wayne was man enough to admit a mistake.

He always said you should speak the truth.

From his own words ;)

 

""I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them."
