Just saw the flick again. Must say it is one of the best of Wayne's offerings. Great supporting cast makes it a classic.

Wayne and O'Hara were in another film together too...let me think..."Wings of Eagles"?

It's not the same type of film, but they were so great together in the Quiet Man. TQM is a great great film

My favorite scene is when O'Hara yells at her brother "Wipe your feet!" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

It's no wonder the yanks had such a ****-eyed view of Ireland, they thought this tosh was a documentary! Support terrorism?, do the names Martin Galvin and Noraid ring any bells??

It's a movie, not a dissertation on American viewpoints of other countries. Jeez. Lots of suppressed European rage here tonight. Have a pint and relax

..... Do you mean "The Krays", the movie about the two Cockney gangster lords in London? That was a terrific film.

No, the Crays, a little known film about the dawn of mainframe computing featuring Rock Hudson as Alan Turing.

That's the last time I read one of your posts before 11 AM...

But on topic, I just spent about $75 USD on a collection of John Wayne DVDs, including the John Ford classics. I'm holding a John Wayne Film Festival for my teenage sons this very weekend, and my youngest is this close to requiring the assistance of a proctologist to select the next song on his iPod...

WV Beware.. members like jimDG (aka a Will & Grace fan) may find positive male role models such as Wayne offensive! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I still prefer "Flying Leathernecks" or "Hatari" when it comes to John Wayne.

My mothers GrandFathers name "John" well John Allan

Every male on my fathers side has the middle name "Wayne". My Great Grandfather Thomas "RedDeer" Wayne, grandfather Larry Wayne, my uncle Charles Wayne, and my father Anthony Wayne

Hard to belive I was born just a few months after he died. All the H3ll I caught in school for that name too, lol. John Wayne aint such a bad name after all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

John Wayne? wasnt he the fellow who refused to fight in WW11 in case his film career was damaged, yet in subsequent years made a considerable amount of money playing The War Hero?
And didnt he try to win the Vietnam War in The Green Berets? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I do like his cowboy films though, Stage Coach, The Searchers, El Dorado...classic movies. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

He applied several times to the armed forces, but was refused. Google "John Wayne Enlist" and apart from the odd couple of pages, the sources will tell you he wanted to but was held back on the grounds of being married with children, not to mention his age (34).
