    This maybe a little sappy, but my favorite Wayne movie is actually "The Quiet Man". It's funny and tough all in the right places and proportions. The westerns are all good as are the WWII movies, but for some reason when I think about his movies I always think of this one first.

    True Grit and The Quiet Man are great movies, but my favorite was and still is Rio Bravo! It was great having a movie hero like John Wayne when we were kids. The choices now do even come close.

    I loved/love all John Wayne's movies but my favorite has to be The Shootist.

    Rio Bravo is right up there, but I think that has more to do with Angie Dickinson than JW.

    Agree. And Barry Fitzgeerald pronouncement upon entering the bedroom with the baby crip are my two favorites words in movies,
    'Impetious"
    "Homeric"

    El Dorado is one of my favorites, but all John Wayne movies are good!

    Did you ever notice how similar the storyline is between Quiet Man and McClintock is--Wayne and O'Harra battling it out?

    And here's a quiz for Duke fans: In how many movies did John Wayne die (and which ones if you're really up to speed)?

    I can only think of 3; The Shootist, The Cowboys and the Sands of Iwo Jima...

    My favorite line is from McClintock: "Let's get to the rat killin'"

    OK, as I understand it, he was killed in:
    The Cowboys, The Shootist, The Sands of Iwojima, The Fighting Seabees, The Wake of the Red Witch, The Alamo, Centeral Airport and Noah's Ark.
    In, Noah's Ark he was an extra who protrayed one of the throngs of people killed in the flood.
    In, The man Who Shot Liberty Valance, he was already dead and the movie was a flashback.
    In, The Deceiver he played a corpse, but was not actually killed.
    In, The Sea Chase, the ship blew up but there was no evidence he was killed and implications that he lived.

    My favorite was always "The Flying Tigers" not even a western, that was on TV constantly when I was a kid. I think the reason it first got my attention was the paint job on the planes, but I own it and watch it for other reasons now. I really like Big Jake as well...but I'm really a Bogart fan honestly...

    I think that Big Jake, was one of his best. The comments to the men attempting to hang the sheep herder were outstanding.
