Back in the late 80's I became familiar with Bobby Carradine who played Slim in The Cowboys. Bob said that JW was justa s great a man in real life off-screen as he was on. He remembered when filming The Cowboys a time when he was fooling around trying to learn how to rope a fencepost and JW came up and taught him some pointers. He said that JW treated all of the kids on the set just as though they were his own. A few years later I saw Bob on a John Wayne remembrance show on TV where he related this same story. That TV show had all of the living co-stars he worked with as well as family and friends and they all said the same thing.

John Wayne had lots of different co-stars over the years. many who went onto their own fame in the movies. then there the ones who almost seemed like regulars in his movies, many who made several movies with him over the years. he even had his own children involved with several of his movies.

That's a great movie! Haven't seen it in years.

what i also liked about John wayne was he was versatile in many different types of roles. cowboy, soldier, lawman and just plain old good guy!

but some of his roles were more humorous than others, like the McClintock, Donovan's Reef, or North To Alaska.

but one of my favorites, was a very much more dramatic role he played with some humor thrown in was the movie, The Quiet Man. excellent movie, great scenery and a good story. this movie was a project tha John Ford wanted to do very much as did all the actors involved with making the movie. plus lots of family and friends were in the film as well. John Ford's brother played a small part. John Wayne's children all had small roles as well. Maureen O'Hara's brother had a role in the film. many of of the actors also had been in several of John Ford's previous movies as well.

Sands of Iwo Jima.

After WWII the politicos in Washington were considering disbanding the Marine Corps. I suppose they figured there would be no need for them anymore.
John Wayne did not want the part in the movie, but was convinced to do it to support the USMC. It is believed by many that that movie "saved" the USMC...

I think your talking about the air force befor da war. Ain't nothing meaner than a 19 year old Marine thats seeing his buddies being killed, or any service member in the armed forces of the USA.............There was much todo about the Air Force before the war.............Lets not forget that the great ships, the air force could not remove the Japs from iwo and okinawa, It was the men on the ground.........................With the help of the first two.....Marines are what I call the coal that keeps the ship running, hidden away in the belly of the ship.................
