John Wayne made almost 150 movies in his career.
Between 1930-1949, he made about 91 films. That’s about 4 films a year !!!!
Yeah, there were some dogs in that period. I personally don’t care much for most of his work during that period. The biggest exceptions are: “Fort Apache (1948)” and “She Wore A Yellow Ribbon (1949).” “Stagecoach (1939)” may have been the movie to set his career on fire, but I really don’t care much for it.
My personal all time favorite Wayne film (in a serious role) is “The Searchers (1956).” This is the movie that I think really showed his acting chops.
The scene at the end is iconicy turned up to 11 .
Hmmmm, he does walk like the guy in “The Birdcage.”
OK, time to get to the mustaches.
The point was that John Wayne made a lot of movies, but rarely had facial hair.
The WORST !!
The Conqueror. It’s like he ate hairy spaghetti yesterday and never wiped it off.
This movie may have the only movie that he wore a wig, other than his own toupee.
Rio Grande. Could have used a bigger soul patch.
She Wore A Yellow Ribbon.
The Shootist. Not high on my list of favorite Wayne movies. Wasn’t really thrilled with his supporting cast. This was a fitting mustache for an distinguished gentleman of the time.
My second favorite (serious) Wayne movie, “In Harms Way (1965)”. A movie that was filled with great characters. The movie was able to do backstories in minutes and develop quality characters very quickly.
The best scene in the movie is when Eddington and Powell go into the officer’s latrine and Powell flips the coin. “Good-bye, Commander! Enjoy it!” Eddington then proceeds to bitch slap Cmdr. Owynn and that’s the scene where Rock’s son Jere, learns what it is to be a man !!!
Favorite Wayne comedy, “McLintock! (1963).” Mmmmmmmm, Maureen O’Hara !!!!! This movie is just all great chuckles !!
Maybe next I’ll do movies by The Duke’s toupees !!
I have been blogging since 11/12/2011.
Not bragging, nothing really spectacular or special.
But, it’s funny to look at how many people start blogs and then quit !!
I am no one special and probably don’t have anything remarkable to say and quite frankly, I am the world’s least interesting person. That’s why I was amazed and filled with awe when I saw that people read what I posted, “liked” and even commented !!
There was a time maybe five years ago when I posted more often and had a good sized audience of regulars. I’d like to post more, but even just writing a simple post every day or so takes a fair amount of “sit-down-and-do-it” time. And also quite frankly, I’m not confident that I really have something original and interesting to post without doing what every one else is doing. I have a lot of respect for both professional bloggers and amateur bloggers that can put out quality on a regular basis.
OK, there is a point to this and the title of this post.
I have a Youtube account and post my videos there and I post videos there that I use for comments on other blogs:
Scroll down and find my reply.
Now, the funny thing is that video got 1500 views on the first 3 days and currently has 2500 views after 6 days !! Now, 2500 views on Youtube is not impressive except that it is for my account !!!!
Back to my blog.
There are several posts that I have done that get hits/views almost daily:
So, how many creepy guys worldwide (I get hits from 6 continents) peruse WordPress looking for possible soft core porn?? (HINT it’s real easy to find porn anywhere on the internet easier !!)
So, with no further ado, I am posting that video here with the blog post title, just to see how many views this post gets!!
