Its not a national holiday but, for some, it should be. On May 26, 1907 Marion Robert Morrison came into the world in Winterset, Iowa. When he left on June 11, 1979, he was John Wayne, an American icon.

They are running John Wayne movies on TCM all day.
I wish they would show BIG JIM MCLAIN.
Rest in peace Duke.
I was in the sixth grade when the Duke died. I remember learning he was gone standing out in the hall changing classes.
Dear God, thank you for John Wayne. Amen!
A co-worker of mine is in Winterset now, having driven all the way from Western PA to attend the annual birthday celebration. It’s a really big deal.
A great American patriot. Bet he and Ronaldus Magnus always get together in Heaven—with Bill Buckley—to celebrate each others’ birthdays.
Thank you so much for posting this. Two weeks ago a freeper posted a comment that said: What would John Wayne think of today’s world? This led to so many freepers hating on the Duke. I was the only one (with one or two exceptions) to praise his courage, talent and political history. It was one of the most depressing days in my many years on FR. (You can check my posts to find out what went on that day.)
God bless you and the Duke.

I started to watch "Red River" last evening... will finish watching this evening.
I wish movies these days were not so PC... director/producer Howard Hawkes' is spot on in the movie... showing John Wayne kicking a$$ and taking names.
We’d have voted him in as President.
RIP John Wayne. You were, are and always will be an American hero.
Just the other night I was in need of a Duke fix so I watched “True Grit”. Great movie. Maybe I will watch me some “Big Jake” tonight. Or “The Man Who Shot Liberty VAlence”.
Happy Birthday Duke. May God be with you.
They don’t make Americans like him anymore. Wish they did.
He wouldn’t keep his mouth shut about the liberal pukes ruining this country. He’d kick the a$$es of the liberals in hollyweird too.
I live in Des Moines about 30 miles from Winterset. I might have to make the drive down for his birthday.
Cool! My birthday too =)
