An inspiring article. I wonder if John Wayne's letters to God are published anywhere? They sound interesting.

John Wayne had a great career playing John Wayne. Nothing wrong with that — I enjoyed most of his movies, including those noted by his defenders above, The Searchers and Stagecoach. Let’s just not waste people’s time about how he was a great “actor”. He also wasn’t the first man to “convert” in order achieve a secular goal so that doesn’t make him particularly unique, either.

Great story. I was unaware he converted.
Gotta go rent “The Quiet Man” again.
I’ve long admired Mr. Wayne. The Quiet Man was likely my favorite, but I enjoyed many of his films. His conversion to Catholicism, and this story of his grandson’s thrill me too. In it’s own way, somewhat reminiscent of Bob Hope’s conversion, both having happened with the help of their wives. Whether our fellow freepers love him or hate him, his individuality is hard to beat. I’d much rather have actors like him on the screen than some of today’s fare.
