True Grit (1969): John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn (Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall, Glen Campbell)


     Directed by Henry Hathaway, True Grit (1969) is a true Classic in the Western genre, and contains John Wayne's only Oscar-winning performance (as "Rooster" Cogburn). The story concerns a young girl who accompanies a US Marshall and a Texas Ranger into Indian Territory to pursue her father's murderer. Full of great action and snappy dialogue, the film is a "must see." The whole cast is great including John Wayne, Glen Campbell, Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall and Kim Darby. The film was remade by the Coen Brothers in 2010.

The Quiet Man (1952): John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara and John Ford in Ireland


     Directed by John Ford, The Quiet Man (1952) captured the beauty of Ireland on film… and presented an another side of John Wayne. The story concerns an Irish-American boxer, retired after killing another fighter in the ring, who returns to his hometown in Ireland to reclaim his family's land. The Oscar-winning cinematography is brilliant, presenting the green Irish countryside in vibrant hues. John Wayne delivers one of his great non-Western performances. Maureen O'Hara is lovely. The supporting cast is great as well, including Victor McLaglen and Ward Bond.
