    Saw that movie at the theatre when it was released. I always thought he should have gotten an Oscar for it.

    I cant understand why the Shootist gets such bad reviews. Its in my top 5 JW favorite movies. I get a little sad watching it knowing that he was suffering and eat up with cancer at the time of the filming.

    Definitely not forgotten. He was a true lover of America and the freedoms it offers. He was a better actor than some give him credit for and made some great (and some not so great) movies.

    The wall of my office including an autographed photo he gave my dad many years ago...


    This is a shelf in my office...


    My SAA with replica stocks like Duke used in some of his later movies...


    A few more items...

    Worked with a guy who's National Guard duty one summer was to be the "troops" that came ashore at D-Day during the filming of The Longest Day. Said Wayne was just a regular guy - told everybody to just call him "Duke".in

    Customer of mine owned his old residence in Acapulco. Let me use it one week for vacation. This was 1984 I think. Cliffside location overlooking the Pacific, with several bedrooms built into the cliffs. Just told the cab drivers to take me to "La Casa de John Wayne". Everyone knew where it was.

    Between house fires and divorces I lost most of the John Wayne stuff I had collected since the 70s but I am regaining.

    My favorites are "The Shootist" "True Grit" and "The Cowboys".

    He is a American icon- from a better time in America long ago. I remember seeing his films with my folks- back in the 60's. Good memories. I passed on a "Duke" Ruger New Vaquero- a while back, wish to hell I had bought it.



    A tough, kind man in film and in real life-and damn! he sure could throw a punch!

    RIP Duke

    The Duke used to summer up here with his boat and the marina on Dungeness bay is named "John Wayne Marina". One of his Colt's is on display there.

    The best western movies ever made was the shootist, the movie was about the end of an era of the old west, and also near the end of a great actor, he said near the end that he wished he could have been half the men that he played in his movies, so humble.
    The movie "shootist" should have got an oscar .
    The Duke will always be remembered, long after most of those snobs are long forgotten.

    This is one of those myths that has taken on a life of its own.

    The Shootist was released in 1976. John's stomach cancer diagnosis came on Jan. 12, 1979 during gall bladder removal. Also, he had two surgeries for lung cancer in 1964, after which he was cancer free until 1978-79.
