John Wane & Bob Hope
he was a big dude.
i wonder if he did die because of that movie shoot or from smoking.
he was bald and didnt care who saw it off screen. i admired him for that
My father was a near dead ringer for the Duke.
in body size and face?
he was a lucky man.
He’s got a boxer’s build. i wonder if Tommy Morrison really was related to him.
Reagan was no shrimp, but he looks tiny next to the Duke.
Same with Dean Martin. The Duke was a big man
Yes. I've lived in New York City all of my 50+ years, but my father was from Tennessee. He and my mother met while he was on leave from the Navy visiting Central Park with a shipmate. Both are gone now.
What a great photo!
I had no idea he was bald!
Dean changed his last name. Like doing that made him look less like my father or uncles :)
italian ancestry all the way.
yeah, the duke looks three feet wide in that picture!!!
Looks like Wayne was saying something that made the others laugh.
Yup, I sure miss all four of those guys! :-)
Trivia: All those in the photo have an airport named after them except Dean Martin. ;-)
after all the intense debate regarding trump and cruz, i needed that!
yeah, i was shocked too!! saw it on a documentary.
he was quite out of shape and bald a few years before the cancer.
but i still wouldnt have wanted to mess with him.
great documentary. he went head to head with NYU, I think, the students.
they hated him before he got there, and didn’t love him after he left, but many did take a liking to him.
Although, Dean Martin was in Airport (1970).
My mother was Italian, 100%. So that makes me half Italian, half Tennessean! We never fully figured out what his precise ancestry was, as his family history went many years back in Tennessee. I do know for a fact that I have a little Cherokee Indian in me. My grandfather, from what I understand, was 1/4 Cherokee.
that’s an outrage!!!!!
we’ll have to get an airport in Staten Island :)
maybe Italy will. They’ve given De Niro lots of honors and I like Martin better.
and the times.
in Tennessee. I dont know that existed lol.
we still stick to the north east coast for some God forsaken reason.
nephew just moved to NC.
part Cherokee too. not THAT’s unique. at least here in the northeast.
i knew two. Bill Beaver in high school. And Mellisa Hawkeye at a job.
