A John Wayne movie nearly cost me my marriage. It was 2am, and we just got to our hotel room. My wife of 10 years, went into the bathroom, and I turned on the TV, waiting my turn. On starts a John Wayne movie I had never seen, The Searchers.

I pulled off my shoes, and settled onto one of the two beds. My wife came out of the bathroom, and wanted to go to sleep, in a quiet room. Screw that! A John Wayne movie I had never seen before! Was she out of her mind!

By 4am, she was hot enough to cook eggs on, and it was months calming her down again.

John Wayne movies helped me stay married! no, not really! but seriously my wife is huge John Wayne fan as much as i am. she will scour the bargain DVD bins at WalMart for John Wayne movies. she usually gets me at least one or two for Christmas or my birthday for a present. she enjoys watching them as much as i do. what a great wife i have!

I have seen all those movies, but especially like the war movies because you knew somebodies ass was going to be kicked. But I am drawing a blank, must be time for MY nap, who the heck is "The Sweed"? I can't make the face, what is his real name? I remember a Polish guy and his bulldozer in the Fighting Sea-bees, but no Sweed

I think "Big Trails" was my favorite. This was JWs first major movie. This is a must see if you are a JW fan. And his last film "The Shootist". I was in Belle Fourche, SD working when it was made.

My wife and I were in Madison County made a stop in Winterset and toured John Wayne's birth home. The house is small, but still very cool. :-D
