Life is hard... It's harder when you're stupid... John Wayne
No wonder I have such a hard time
Name your turkey Thanksgiving, and your goose Christmas, and your pig Bacon.
Oh, everyone liked him. But still . . . he wore lifts to appear even taller.
Well with his actual name being Marion Robert Morrison that almost as bad as a boy named Sue. A little taller wouldn't hurt.
Wayne a member of the USC football team. Nothing wrong with being 6’1”. It just isn’t dominant.
Now, if you want some fun, find pictures of LBJ with men whose fame was from outside of politics.
Tom Landry & family lived nearby as I was growing up (Head Coach Dallas Cowboys first 27-years). A former pro, he was noticeable for size when away from other players.
One of the funniest pictures of him I’ve ever seen was LBJ congratulating him & the team after one of many NFC Championship wins. Landry’s discomfort is partly that Johnson was larger AND far more adept at physical dominance.
He can’t wait to pull away.
You can bet ol’ Wayne isn’t ever going to allow himself to be photographed with Johnson. Hand size difference alone would cripple Miss Marion
There’s actors. And there’s the real thing.
As LBJ isn’t well-loved, I find it even funnier in retrospect.
I hear John Wayne I think of that movie " Mclintock " one of my favorites 1963 I believe . Watched it a few times & still get a chuckle out of it .
My Dad and I roared first time it was on network TV. Even got my mother giggling in spite of herself.
My red-headed ex found it a favorite.
I’ll watch it from any point. Come to a favorite moment, enjoy, and move on. Not my favorite Wayne, it’s the ensemble that does it. Got that travelling vaudeville show feel. EVeryone knows what will happen, but that only reinforces the pleasure.
Good to know it’s travelling far out into space.
Wayne was “best” when the woman was Patricia Neal or Maureen O’Hara he played against. They could take up as much room as he could. It’s funny to watch him smile knowing what they were doing.
And his cast of regulars. You came to love them all. “The Quiet Man” maybe best. Not a single character unlovable (in the end).
Saw “True Grit” at theater with Dad when it came out (1970). When Robert Duvall insults Sheriff Cogburn with, “(that’s) Bold talk for a one-eyed fat man”, Wayne’s response is classic. Perfect. (Became one of my Dads few movie quotes).
A whole lot of us feel that way.
HL Menckens quote, “Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, raise the black flag and begin slitting throats”, is apt. Now or never.
Wayne’s look of surprise and then response (action) was in his walk. “Now” was evident.
“The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”
That he did as no one else can.
The Shootist is my favorite. Opie was good in the movie.
“I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.”
And what a great movie to go out upon.
