It’s John Wayne day on the Encore Western channel, for two reasons. First, John Wayne was born on May 26th, so it’s the Dukes birthday weekend and second, every Memorial Day weekend the Western Channel pays tribute to John Wayne by having a ‘John Wayne Movie Marathon.’ So I ask, what is your favorite John Wayne move?

I know it’s hard to decide which movie is my favorite because, the Duke appeared in 162 movies in his lifetime. Here are a few of my personal favorites. The War Wagon, Rooster Cogburn, Lucky Texan, Sagebrush Trail, Rio Bravo, Sands of Iwo Jima, True Grit and The Green Berets.

No lawn-mowing or honey-do’s for me, I watching the John Wayne Marathon. Do you have a favorite movie star you like to watch?
