    John Wayne On Phil Donahue Show

    This was done just before the release of "The Shootist" which turned out to be his last film. He seemed in good spirits and the audience was made up of mostly middle aged women who seemed to be in awe of him. I wish they had spoken more about his movies and co stars, the questions from the audience seemed to be mostly "fluff". He mentioned that "Stagecoach", "Hatari" and "The Quiet Man" were his favorites of his films. He also mentioned that working with "True Grit" co star Kim Darby was "rough". He gets into his opinions on women's rights and liberals if you are into that.

    How To Get My Age Bracket (20-30) Into Cinema

    What's your "cut-off" date when movies stopped being great? I know you have praised some 1970s films but I was curious if there were any in more modern times that you liked.

    How To Get My Age Bracket (20-30) Into Cinema

    He had a whole movie named after him "Being John Malkovich" (1999), he also got a well deserved Oscar nomination opposite screen legend Clint Eastwood in "In The Line Of Fire" I will agree that Malkovich was miscast in the remake of "Of Mice And Men", I believe the 1939 version is the best, Lon Chaney Jr will always be quintessential Lennie.

    I love this one. Sanders is a despicable though clever villain in this. He even has Stanwyck doubting her own sanity!
