      Thanks for commenting Bruce, always appreciated amigo.

      Don't forget Rio Bravo, one of Wayne's best westerns.

      Interesting look at the middle mark of John Wayne's movie career. I have seen most of these movies with The Quiet Man easily being my favorite of all the ones on the hub. Red River and The Searchers oiled be fighting for the second spot.

      Voted up and across the board......looking forward to part 3 of John Wayne from 1960-1976.

      John Wayne should never have made The Conqueror, not only was he miscast as Genghis Khan, the filming locations near atomic testing grounds probably caused the cancer that killed him.

      One more John Wayne poster hub to go, I'll post it tonight and take a few days break from hubbing. Like I've always said writing at HP is so relaxing because there is no deadline, we can post our hubs whenever we want. :)

      Thanks again for commenting David.

      I think my favorite of these is "The Quiet Man"-- maybe it's a guilty pleasure, because the characters are over the top and so stereotyped, but I still enjoy watching it. John Wayne as Genghis Khan??? My thoughts exactly.
