There are several freepers who do not like John Wayne. I hope this post reaches some of them.
To the doubters: he was one of America's finest film actors. Don't believe me? Watch “The Searchers,” in particular the scene in which he watches the women who have been driven mad after being rescued from the Comanches.
Why would anyone not like John Wayne?
I guess you've never seen The Conqueror!
John Wayne was a very good actor from the late 1930s to the mid 1960s.
After THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALENCE he fell into a rutt of same same. Same character, different shirt.
Same character, same plot, movie after movie. I've seen them all.
He did change again in the 1970s and I still consider THE OUTLAWS and THE SHOOTIST to be his crowning work, even though critics at that time blasted it unmercifully.
I personally have a preference for Randolph Scott, Joel McCrea, and some Gary Cooper westerns.
