    "She wore a Yellow Ribbon" , "The Quiet Man" and "Sands of Iwo Jima" are probably my favorite, but I like almost all of 'em.

    The Searchers. I consider this to be Wayne's best film and argueably the best western film ever.

    The Searchers,
    She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,
    Stagecoach,
    Angel and the Badman,
    Fort Apache,
    The Quiet Man.

    El Dorado was always my favorite.

    True Grit is right up there as well.

    Red River...............

    The ultimate non-confrontational expression of doubt......., "Could be Mr. Dunson, could be." Walter Brennen (Groot) to Wayne (Matt Dunson).

    As for classic westerns of all times............ "The Searchers" is far an away at the head of the class.

    As much as I liked El Dorado, I loved the scene in Rio Bravo with Ricky and Dean singing, basically the same movie other than the songs.

    The Shootist
    The Cowboys
    McClintock
    Rooster Cogburn

    Sands of Iwo Jima and In Harms Way, Liberty Valance. I saw Kirk Douglas on a tv show and he said that John Wayne actually thought he was the Duke in real life like the characters he portrayed in the movies.

    Beautiful scenery and great storyline. Walter Brennan steals the show.

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance


    remdog1187_2009_0104206.jpg


    Great cast of supporting actors. Jimmy Stewart, Strother Martin, Lee Van Cleef,
    Woody Strode, Andy Devine, John Carradine, Edmond O'Brien and Denver Pyle.
    I think it was the best role Lee Marvin ever played.

    Hats off to John Wayne! We just don't have real men like him anymore in Hollywood. They produce nothing but crap now and for the past 10 years.

    I can not pick just one, I like and still watch a lot of his movies.


    The one that got all of us was The Cowboys, because he was killed in that movie.


    Yes I know he died in the Shootest, but, he had cancer (and he actually was in real life) and went out his way.

    Long associated as a cowboy or western figure, certainly The Man who shot Liberty Valance was a classic bad vs. good, while The Shootist culminated that western era, and Wayne's career.

    However, for acting, plot twists and magnitude, check out "In Harm's Way". Incredible story, world class cast, individual sadness as an undercurrent.

    Battles are fought '....by scared men who would rather be somewhere else.....'

    In Harm's Way is my favorite Marion Morrison movie.

    I like them all, but to pick a few- In Harm's Way, El Dorado, Rio Bravo, Rio Lobo, and Donavan's Reef was pretty funny.
