John Wayne has been my favorite actor since my early teens. I had the great joy of actually visiting his birthplace in Winterset, Iowa, when I was like fifteen. I'd love to go back one day. It's always been a source of great satisfaction to me that I was born in the same state he was. Nowadays, I'm also really pleased that we probably shared the same Meyers-Briggs personality type too: ISFJ.
I've reviewed a few of John Wayne's movies here over the years, so today I've collected those up here for you to peruse if you haven't had the chance to read them yet:
Angel and the Badman (1947)
Operation Pacific (1951)
The Quiet Man (1952)
The High and the Mighty (1954)
The Searchers (1956)
Rio Bravo (1959)
I hope you've enjoyed this little stroll down blogging-memory lane :-) I'm hoping/planning to watch Rio Bravo with my kids on Friday for our new little summertime tradition of Friday Movie Lunches. They haven't seen it before, and since it's one of my absolute favorites, I'm really looking forward to sharing it with them!
What's your favorite John Wayne movie? Mine's actually The Sons of Katie Elder (1965), which I've never properly reviewed here, so maybe I'll get around to that later this summer, especially if I decide to show it to my kids in a few weeks!
