    WOW... that was cool. Met John Wayne when I was 8 yrs old, while he was filming the Alamo and saw the replica, town, etc. Pony Soldiers had just been released. 1958. I took my kids there and showed it to them, 35 yrs later to show it to them. The "guide" .... told me there was no way I had been there... what an idiot.

    John Wayne in person, was even better.

    Been a JW fan all my life. Although True Grit was a good movie, I don't think it compared to his final film The Shootist. They don't make them like him anymore.

    I would hate to think what the Duke would say if he saw the way the world is today
    "Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"

    I love John Wayne and just about all of the old western movies, but that was really interesting to me because I have been in most of those places. When I lived up in Colorado, I used to Jeep all around Durango, Silverton, Lake City, Ouray, Ridgeway and Telluride. It is one of my all time favorite areas. Thanks for posting it.....

    Thanks for posting that! Any time I can see the Duke, I take it. And that was really cool seeing the places where that was filmed and how they look now.

    Very cool.

    That was a short 11 minutes. Great video

    Very Cool! True Grit has a special place in my heart, it was my dad's favorite Duke film.

    What I wouldn't give to sit down and watch it with him again.

    Thanks for the post.

    Long live the Duke.

    "Quiet Man"... is my favorite film of his, right ahead of Pony Soldiers, and a whole host of others. My mother's favorite was "McClintock".
