I didn't like Wayne as rooster that much. Sure it was his swan song, though I really liked the shootist better.
Wayne's best western character, imo, was in the searchers. she wore a yellow ribbon was nice and sentimentle. Fort Apache was a good role, thouhd shanny's starting to remind me of Henry fonda in that one.
Speaking of FOnda,
welcome to hardtimes was definetey a neat twist, based on a doctorow novel
cheyenne social club, very funny
my fav, winchester 73, but hell the rifle is the star
they rode together with him and richard widmark
as an adult, the naked spur is pretty cool
funny thing about Stewart was the studio wouldn't let him do action, and left him in light comedy, until he flew B-17s over Germany. His career got better after they found he had real cajones.
nobody mentioned the magnificent 7, did they?
