Today is the Duke's birthday.

 

What was your favorite Duke cowboy movie?

 

I guess The Searchers would be mine.

Hard to call just one a favorite.  I guess my top 5 would be: The Searchers, Rio Bravo, Hondo, Fort Apache, and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.

I was working in the Cimarron/Texas Jack tent at Mule Camp some years ago, and John Wayne's birthday was on one of the shoot days.  We had a Chiappa big-loop '92 on the table, and I thought for sure it would draw some interest as a result, but nobody paid any attention.

 

I think my favorite is True Grit.

I try to watch 3 or 4 of his movies a week. I like them all but love anything from the 50s, 60s or 70s.

I am in Iowa now for state shoot and came a day early so I could go to his museum and birthplace tomorrow. CPK is going to meet me and we are going there together. Happy Birthday Duke.

back before the centennial celebrations i was with an architectural firm that worked up restorations for the winterset town square - back to how it looked in 1876 , i loved that town , and all 7 of the bridges of madison county that a family friend wrote a book about , im sure much has changed since then but it was a fond part of my life
