Oh so long since I have been here, missing you all, still working on things to do with our nation and world in distress. But I came upon this movie with John Wayne from 1936, he was only 29 y/o!

Thought of Rooster of course, ended up watching the whole thing it was a rootin-tootin (i.e. a Western), quite good too!

Oh SFA...yes, even in Wales I'm sure it must be important for your acculturation to know about John Wayne...my claim to fame is that when I lived in Iowa, I visited the town of Winterset, where he was born, and his family home is now preserved as a tourist attraction or something! And Winterset is still a rather small, rural town too, very pretty I liked it.

Always thought he was great in "Three Godfathers".

Oh Rooster this is a wonder and a delight -- directed by John Ford, all the way back in 1946, proudly in technicolor which must have been quite a new innovation then! And John Wayne playing a bad man, too...

Starts out that way but ends differently. :)

I've seen Stagecoach (1939). :)

He had a LOT of uncredited film roles in the 20s. :O

New information for me in both points, Tink! 

-- I did not realize STAGECOACH was so early as 1939, nor that he was knocking around with bit parts uncredited in the '20's...

It was "Stagecoach" that made him a permanent movie star finally!

He was always ancient in any of the films I saw him in. In fact, I tried my darnest not to see his films.
