Don’t know about you, but like our commenter Unit yesterday, I’m simply not gonna bother today. So, here you go! One of Jess’ and my favorites, the real one too. 🙂

      Good plan, Pilgrim. 🙂


  2. And John Wayne only received one personal Oscar for a movie, i.e. True Grit. Perhaps he should have got a few others? The Searchers, Red River. But my favorite for sure was his last movie, The Shootist. His work and dialogue with Bacall was a thing of beauty! But my personal list of Wayne movies favorites is long! One has got to see his movie: The High and the Mighty, with Duke and Robert Stack. Flying from Hawaii to Frisco in a DC 8 on fumes, Wayne is supposed to be the co-pilot. Just a great movie!

      • Aye, the Swede! What a battle that was, but a 63 verses a 65… one of the greatest golf rounds I have ever seen in an Open! And I have seen a few myself.

    I watched the movie off and on today. It may be my laptop, but about the 1hr-28min mark the voice sound and lip movement seemed out of sync. I don’t know for how long as I stopped watching after several minutes. It may have cleared up as quickly as it came on, but I didn’t continue on to see. I could have fast fowarded it to see. But I didn’t. Too tired by then as i had watched off and on with all that was going on.

      Just thought…maybe it was some transmission problem. I don’t know the technical aspects. Might go back in tomorrow and it will be ok.

      Nope, it has a problem, and after that point the sound goes badly out of sync with the video. Sorry, too bad, maybe there’s a better one out there.


      • I have many John Wayne Movies of my own, one can buy movies from or through TCM. And yes, I quite recommend it!
