“She Wore a Yellow Ribbon”, one of my top ten movies. I own the colorized version, but actually prefer the BW version. I believe Turner was who colorized it..

“The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” is on the schedule, although that was more Jimmy Stewart’s movie, and Lee Marvin who stole the show as Liberty.

Yes, the countryside scenery and Maureen is absolutely gorgeous.

“Red River” is my favorite and also John Wayne’s favorite, at least that is what I have read.

“Liberty Valance” is my next favorite.

A few years ago, my son burned what I think is every “Duke” movie onto DVDs and gave it to me for my birthday. I’ve always loved John Wayne movies. I can’t even begin to pick a favourite. Well, maybe The Horse Soldiers or The Cowboys, I really liked seeing the Duke work with those young kids.

I watched part of “The Big Trail” today. The duke looked younger than I’d ever seen him. Movie released in 1930.

I second “The Quiet Man.” Old woman hands The Duke a switch, ostensibly to use on Maureen as he drags her over the countryside. He takes it with a big “Thanks.” lol Never uses it, of course.

That's a fact. I bought the Blu-ray from Amazon.com for $8.99 (plus shipping). I also got The Big Trail on Blu-ray from them but it cost a little bit more.

"HAUNTED GOLD"

LOL. I watched that movie at least 45 years ago with a couple of friends at a Saturday matinee. I still remember some black actor (on JW's side), scaring the bad guys in a bed sheet saying,

"I is the Phantom! I is the Phantom!"

I have to go along with “The Searchers” for the best western. I sure like Maureen O’Hara(sp) in the roles she played. The perfect woman to stand up to the Duke.

In just about any color picture of Wayne with him dressed Western style, he will have on his “Red River D” belt buckle.

Wayne also used the Red River “D” as his personal brand on his ranch. It consisted of two wavy lines representing the river with a capital D over them.

Interesting that currently showing (10pm eastern time) is Frontier Horizon...sure has all the feel of Harry Reid and the BLM versus the Bundy family and the patriots who support them

Here is the descriptor :” The Three Mesquiteers attempt to warn ranchers that a group of greedy speculators are attempting to swindle them by exchanging their property for worthless parcels of land”
