Going home tonight and me and the wife is going to watch The Quiet Man.
Favorite will have to be Rio Bravo. (2 favorite Actors John Wayne and Dean Martin all in one movie)
"If you follow him, I'll hunt you down and kill you. Every Mother's son of you."
The Searchers then The Quiet Man
I'm going to go out on a limb as guess that "McQ" isn't at the top of anybody's list.
sand of iwojima
you know, all the ones he got killed in.
The Searchers, followed by El Dorado.
ooooh so many. The War Wagon, Hondo, Flying Leathernecks, Sands of Iwo Jima (who didnt cry when Sgt Stryker bit it?), True Grit
Does The Longest Day count as a John Wayne movie? I dont think it does.
Anything he did with John Ford.
Rio Grande, followed by Stagecoach (...and then Fort Apache).
(I can't believe ten people posted before me, and nobody mentioned either one. Man, he did make a lot of good movies!)
The Longest Day. Dunno if that technically qualifies as a 'John Wayne movie', since he does share the spotlight with one or two (or 41) other stars, but still...
"Fill Your hands you Son of a Bitch"
I just can't pick ONE!!!............just can't do it!!!

I cant think of any. I never liked "the duke" Jimmy Stewart could whip his ass.
I am just here to poop on the thread.
AKA as tag for titles that I have not seen yet. Maybe one of them is good.
Does your boyfriend like any John Wayne movies, then?
Ahhhhh TUMOR just HAD to go and shamelessly copy the IMDB list. Now I have to go add to my DVD collection
The quiet man of course, Just a great movie you can enjoy over and over again. And The Searchers. Next Donavans Reef with Lee Marvin a true one of a kind.
In Harm's Way.
They Were Expendable
I always got a kick out of the Beverly Hillbillies episode when John Wayne shows up after the indian attack. Anyone remember that one?
Rooster Cogburn and the Lady
All of em with Maureen O'Hara.
I watch it everytime it's on the TV.
In Harm's Way, The Quiet Man, True Grit
Looking at that list, I am pretty certain that I have seen all of his post WWII films and a few earlier ones.
We went to see John Wayne movies to see John Wayne. Not to see him act, mind you, but just to watch him be John Wayne.
Jimmy Stewart was a slightly different breed. He was a much better actor, but he was always recognizable.
Gosh, I remember the days when we actually were excited about seeing a new movie in the theater. Nowdays, movies are cranked out so fast with so much done by computers that the magic is gone.
The one where I shoot up a Buick.
That one is pretty awesome.
Big Jake (Bad Guy played by RIchard Boone: "I thought you was dead." Big Jake: "Not hardly.").
True Grit ("Damn that Texan, everytime you need him he's dead!").
The Searchers ("That'll be the day.").
The Quiet Man ("You say 'three' and you won't hear the man count ten!").
In Harm's Way (I can't think of a line, but I'll edit when one comes to me).
My daughter gave me a collection of old JW westerns. Wayne and Gabby Hayes and Yakima Canutt (horse stuntman/barfight inventor) .
They're fun to watch, they leave scenes in that they'd retake in a later era.
In one scene, JW and sidekick GH walk past their parked hayburners when one of the horses lets out a horrendous sneeze that makes them jump. I almost laughed my ass off!
Of course, with the "Arfcom Boggie Man" in it, it would be a horror movie.
Nothing scareier than those mean old "Fundies".
<-------This oughtta be a clue!
In Harms Way-Well we all know the Navy's nerver wrong,but there a little weak on being right.
Eldorado-I'am lookin at a tin star with a drunk pinned on it.
Chisum-Did you bring some gold..no..silver..no just lead.
The Wings of Eagles
The Green Berets...you are what this is all about to Hamchuck. PETERSON...PETERSON HERE?
The GREEN BERETS
Lot's of killin with turn of the century weapons. Revenge, lot's of it. Maureen O'Hara 'nuff said.
I am so frightening that sometimes I can't sleep for days after looking in the mirror.
"What if I really *AM* a part of some grand conspiracy??" I think to myself....
I have to say Sands of Iwo Jima or The Longest Day.
Not a huge fan of old westerns.
I think we've all discovered that "Furries" are far more scary than "Fundies"
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
the fighting seabees.
I am glad to see that i am not alone with
The Green Berets ( I don't really like westerns much)however my mom is a huge JW fan
seems a lot of people do not likeGreen Berets and say it is shameless propaganda
well IMO most modern movies are shameless propaganda too its just for the other side now
I can't remember the nameof the movie, but I like the one where he plays an awesome tough guy that dispenses some raw justice on a real son-of-a-bitch that deserved it.
Does anybody remember which one this is?
The High and the Mighty,classic DC-4 action! And somewhat true,as there was a USAF C-97 that lost 2 engines over the Pacific,going to Hawaii,about the same time.
I like the one where he is in the saloon and has this blonde bitch bent over the barstool and this little midget comes up and sticks his... no wait, different movie...
Quiet Man. Not a collossal JW fan, but that's a great movie.
