“2011 October The Personal Property of John Wayne Signature Auction - Los Angeles, CA. Auction #7045.”
Video link from the movie Repo Man of which John Wayne did not appear however, there is a scene where one character claims the Wayne was not as manly as he appears.
Very Bad language too.
But on some level, it is funny.
Here’s the page with the auction lots...
The Man !!!
The Man !!!
From True Grit to Brokeback Mountain in 40 years.
Right there you can see the evolution (devolution?)of our society.
One of the greatest screen icons of all time. My brother lives in L.A. so I’ll try to get him to go to this auction (he’s into Wayne memorabilia).
Did you know that there are some folks on FR who absolutely HATE John Wayne? It’s true! Several months ago on a JW thread, I was excoriated and mocked for my love of the Duke!!
‘...wore in his Golden Globe-winning performance in “True Grit.”’
Thought he won an Oscar for True Grit.
Regardless of what people say about him, I have enjoyed a lot of his movies.
The quiet Man —one of the non-Westerns done remains one of my favorites.
