Most of us collect Duke's movies while others like myself collect many things. What I would like to know is, which in your collection is your favorite? Mine would have to be a program from the Academy Awards where Duke won his only Oscar in True Grit. You only got these if you attended and it is in beautiful shape (with just a touch of food stain on the cover). The cover has a gold-embossed statue of Oscar. I guess just knowing it was there the night Duke finally got recognized for his achievments is what makes it special to me. My second favorite would be a coffee mug that he gave to the cast and crew of McQ that has the movie emblem on one side and says "Good Luck, John Wayne" on the other side. Mugs from his older movies are way out of my price range, so this is one I could afford. Well, anyone else want to share their favorite collectable? Would love to hear about it. dukefan1

My favorite piece in my collection really isn't worth anything, but it means a lot to me. It's a little glass bottle that I filled with red sand when I went to Monument Valley. I just like to look at it, and think of all of the movies that the Duke shot there. It's such a beautiful piece of this Earth.

Well apart from 105 movies and 14 DVDs i have a framed print a4 size of the duke right hand on his 45 and holding his winchester by the barrell (butt to the floor) and a franklin mint plate when he played hondo certificate as well (both given to me by my ex wives) the plate sits on a stand on the book case with the 105 for all to see.

JW fans, I love John Wayne Stuff, my walls are covered with paintings and photos, I have a small bust of the Duke, about 10 of the Franklin Mint Plates, a Roll of John WAyne Toilet paper (it don't take any crap off anybody) and a Commemorative John WAyne Poket Watch--all this plus 1201/2 of his movies on VHS or DVD

Probably my favorite thing that I own other than my movies, which are no way near the 105 that Chris Maude has, but I have an autographed picture of him on my wall. I wrote to him when I was going into the hospital for the tenth millionth time, and told him what he meant to me. I dout that he read it, but I have always hoped, because he meant so much to me and still does. I also have a picture of John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart from the Shootist that means a lot to me to, I guess because both of them are among my favorite actors, and becuase that was Wayne's last movie. I don't really have anything that is really worth alot of money, but if it has John Waynes name on it it doesn't matter what the cost.

I have many movies, movie posters, press kits, plates, photos and many other things. But what means the most to me is in my mind and not in my hands. I have visited John Wayne's gravesite many times. A few times before there was a headstone and many times after the headstone.

The next important item I have is again in my mind and that was a voyage in the harbor aboard the Wild Goose during the Christmas Season.

My wish, that I could have shared a moment in time to talk with John Wayne.

Chisum,
I am with you on your wish!
I would have loved to see him and talk to him too. And definitly tell him what he has done for me in my lifetime!

B) My most prized collection, would be an autographed picture from Hondo that my father had wrote to John Wayne to give me as a surprise. It is still as valued as I first layed eyes on it.

I didn't post on this thread the first time around, because I would be hard pressed to consider any one JW item I own more cherished over another. I have a large collection of videos, a growing collection of DVDs, a few pictures, several books.

Over the past few months, what has become special to me is this board, the friends I have made here, and the many things I have learned about the Duke.

My favorite John Wayne piece is my big sketched drawing of him as Chisum. It's in a simple wooden frame. It's hanging over my desk in my western kitchen. When I was 10 or so my mom took me shopping at what used to be Jamesway. We were walking along where the pictures were and here it was leaning against another picture like it was waiting for me. It wasn't that expensive either. Whenever people come in they're like where did you get that picture? That's my favorite. I do have a black and white poster of him as Ringo from Stagecoach. Of course there are many more John Wayne collectibles in my possession. Wouldn't trade them for anything.

Hi Brianb mine to is an aotograph photo of the The Duke from the cowboys but it was my brother not my dad who sent away for it.He gave it to me on my sixteenth birthday only a short while after my dad past away. My brother was green with envy he wasn't expecting anything back but when we got mail from John Wayne at wilshire boulavard he nearly died. There is a small brown mark on the back almost like a cigarette burn almost like the Duke was sittng smoking while signing his autograph. :lol:

:D Hi I am new to this site, I have many items in my collection, but the one I like the most is The Duke's autograph the he gave me one night is a resturant in Casa Grande, AZ.

He came in with his friends and told them to go sit down. He them walked around and talked to everyone in the place and gave all of us his card which is signed on the back. He brought in his own Commonwealth Tequila, put it behind the bar and bought all his drinks. I will never forget that night.

Well, Jerrylg, you just made a bunch of people very envious. I know I sure am. Did you get a chance to talk to him any? Sure would love to know what was said. Welcome to the board and we hope to see you here often. there is a lot to share and a lot to learn. I never stop learning myself. dukefan1

I carry around with me my most treasured possesion, Memories of going to the pictures with my late Dad when a John Wayne film came to our local cinema, the two of us would just sit there and look up at the big screen and enjoy.

I have the movie and book on the wild goose. I was young and spent time at newport beach when the goose got some of the conversion work done and then it was moored on the tip of Lido penisula near us. Once when we were cruising around in a rented motor boat we went by and there was a party with the cowboys team on board. someone was leaning over the stern about ten feet from us pulling a dingy up on the step. He looked up at us and it was john. you felt like just saying "HI JOHN" just like an old friend, but we didn't want to be like tourists. always regretted that. another time on the rented boat when it conked out and we drifted up to this house and went up to use the phone. found out later it was john waynes house, the one he bought to tie the goose up to and then couldn't after all.
Years later I worked at van nuys airport and parked his jet plane, it had a oscar painted next to the door and the oscar had a patch over one eye. a neat touch. just a few things I remember.

Hello and welcome to the board, judicliff. Those are some awesome memories to have. I bet you could kick yourself for not saying hello. Thanks for sharing them with us. Make sure to come by often and jump into any thread and make yourself at home. Dukefan1

Well, I personally don't own any John Wayne Memorabilia but my parents do and I must say out of all the stuff they have (which would be ALOT) my favorite thing is a framed movie poster of "The Sands of Iwo Jima", and it shows John Wayne running into battle with a crazy :stunned: look on his face.

I was raised by my mom. It was just she and I. In 1956 when I was 8, I saw Hondo. I think I adopted John Wayne as a fahter figure. I have a photo of him the first time you see him walking up with Lasie (Sam). That and a JW commemorative winchester are my prized items. I would be interested in finding out how to get a mug from one of his movies. I've heard of these but don't know where to look. I envy those of you with an autograph

Hondo H., have you looked on eBay yet? I see the mugs selling there every now and then. I got one last year from the movie "McQ", and love it. It has the emblem from the movie on the front, and in script, on the back, says "Good Luck, John Wayne." I paid about $50. for mine. The older or more popular films mugs are more expensive. I've seen some sell for over a thousand. Check there and good luck! Mark

:blink: :blink: :blink: :o Holy cow Colorado B, compared to what you have, my list could fit on the head of a needle. Great collection by the way.

Here's my collection.

Excluding everything I have on VHS and DvD. I have one of those Franklin Mint statues of The Duke. The one I have is of him in Rio Bravo.

I set of John Wayne Stamps.

One Coke Cola can with John Wayne on it and it is commemorating She Wore A Yellow Ribbon.

Two studio released press photo's.

Photo NR 1: Is a shot of him along with Henry Fonda, Ward Bond, Victor mclaglen and others in Fort Apache just before they were wiped out in the final Indian charge. John Wayne of course was not in that scene in the movie, only in the still.

Photo Nr 2: is a shot of John Wayne talking with his Chinese crew chief standing next to his P-40 Warhawk fighter. The crew chief is pointing at the mg holes in the fusilage of his fighter.

Not sure if I still have it or not but I had a copy of the McLintock comic book.

I still have 4 pair of Hondo 3-d glasses. Three are the brown ones with images of The Duke on them and the final one is red colored and has images of Michael pate as Vittorio.

One book on John Wayne movies.

Last but not least: One VERY old and somewhat crumpled (due to age) bumper sticker which is yellow and white and has a cowboy boot on it and it says: GOD bless John Wayne.

Great collection Bob,
Mines's pretty expansive,
particularly on the films and book side.
I envy you folks in the States,
as stuff is probably more accessible there!
People like Arthur and I, either have to import it,
or save wads of money to go Stateside with!!

Hi Keith, my pockets these days, hold mainly dust and not cash due to medical bills and such. IF you guys were legally allowed to buy commemerative weapons from the USA, you could own some that were commemorating John Wayne. There are several types out there.

You have your choices of"

US Army single action Colt .45.

US Army Colt .45 semi-auto.

M1-Garand.

M1-Carbine.

1894 Winchester 30-30.

And there are several other weapons made that also commemorate John Wayne. These are all VERY expensive because they limit the numbers made to I think 500 or 1,000 each and they are engraved in gold.

Surprisingly these are easy to come by and the prices have not risen much over the original asking prices. The average price last time I checked was over $2,000.

These are working weapons and I guess that living across that pond, I guess you are not allowed to own any of these?

Also, if you bought one and then took it out and fired it, it would instantly lost half it's value.

Sadly, these are all out of my financial reach at this time but, if i can ever afford to get one, I would buy either the Garand or the single action army revolver.

Best regards my friend--C.

I wish I could have more, but My best Duke collection item is a commemorative 45 automatic, which I bought 13 years ago when I lived in the UK, els I have porcelain plates, and statues, pictures in frames, mugs, most movies on VHS and DVDs.
:wub: Would like to get a Winchester and a Army colt 45 hanging on the wall with the 45 automatic. Got a army colt 45 with gun belt and bullits, but it is not a duke copy, bought it in Texas, with all my other cowboy gear.

One reason is ofcause finding it, other reason is for sure price ect...

I have many things from the Good old movie days of Duke's like Saddles, Tack, Chaps, Hats, Boots, Shirts and Movie Guns. I have been collecting these things for over 60 years from back when they did not cost so much money.

I do not have have all the D.V.D. and V.H.S. Tapes that some of you have, but I have about 50, and 4 or 5 books on the Duke.

If you would like to see some of the Guns go to DUKE'S THINGS (http://www.wyntoontrip.com/DUKESGUNS.html)

Hi Larry, I did a quick search for the site I was looking for yesterday and did not find the site I wanted. I'll keep looking untill I find it for you.

Hi Emmanuel, your quite welcome my friend. On other sites dealing with other collectables, I see that most people do not post what they have as a collection because they are intimidated by the few who actually have very large collections. I always post my collection which usually gets a few others to post theirs as well--no matter how large or how small their collection or mine may be. :)

Hi ChillBill, you have an awsome collection of Duke stuff. I tip my hat to you sir.

Hey Keith, maybe we should combine our two collections into one larger one? :D

Take care--Carl.

That's probably a good idea.

I confine my collecting to films/Documentaries, and books,as many
as I can reasonably collect, keeping away from the Wayne Enterprise, sort of stuff.
I posted earlier, that's a hard enough job, this side of the pond as it is!!
I try to keep the happy medium, of being a fan of Duke,not obsessed by him!!

Hi Keith, that is cool. If we had enough stuff, we could open our own John Wayne Museum in England. I have a few rifles that could be added to the lot. These rifles are very similar to ones he used in Stagecoach and in Hondo.

Take care my friend--Carl.

PS, we'd have to order a few of his Standees as well.

The funny thing is, we have a Duke standee, outside one of the stores,
here in the Torquay harbourside, and it is a constant source
of attraction and amusement to everyone.
It is also a very popular photographic opportunity!

Hi mate, sounds good to me but, i'll ask the Queen for permission to display the weapons. :D It might turn out that she might also be a huge John Wayne fan as well.

I used to have a Duke standee as well back in my colllege days. This one was in black & white and showed him "fanning" his pistol. We kept this in our dorm and this too seemed to become an attraction of sorts.

No problem, and it's official, you and Emmanuel are both invited for a steak dinner at the Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse. better come hungry. :D

Hi Lasse, Im not sure if the name has changed or not. I still been looking around the web for a good site and have found one that was selling JY commemoratives but, it was not the site I had seen before. I might be lucky and might have written down it's site address somewhere. I'll be looking through notes tonight and see.

I would have tried looking more for them but I was working on a special project for the CC Museum of Science & History which has to do with the US Civil War. I had to research 2 Springfield Rifled muskets, an imported Enfield rifled musket, imported from England to the Confederacy, as well as a Sharpe's Cav Carbine, an 1860 Army Colt and an 1861 Navy Colt. Then had to research a Union Army Artillery Sword as well as a Cav officers sword, a dress bayonet for the 1861 Springfield, as well as a CSA marked canteen, messkit, tin cup, and a few other artifacts. ;-) I was off track for awhile. :)

I'd be glad to see ya at the museum. I wish Keith and I were not only joking about it though. :) As for the Winchester rifle we have, its an Winchester 1894 which has prominance as having formerly belonged to a citizen who lived in Colombus New Mexico -- who was killed in the famed raid that the Mexican bandit Pancho Villa, and his men had done. This Winchester was taken by one of the Mexicans who apparently had been the one to kill the rifles former owner. Well, my Grandfather had fought Pancho Villa on several occasions and on one occasion, was when my Grandfather had killed the Mexican bandit who had this rifle as well as killed another who had a 38-40 pistol.

As for having a way to post--I do not have a way as I don't have a camera nor a computer. Otherwise, i'd be happy to show off these guns as well the guns my Grandfather had (and mine as well :D )

I promise though, i'll keep looking for that website.

One thing I almost forgot to mention is that if you can ever make it to Solothurn, Switzerland. They have an old arms arsenal there and on one of the floors, they have a glass case full of minty and original Winchester rifles. I took some pictures of many things there when I visited back in 2000 but, I don't know if I took any pictures of the Winchesters or not.

Best wishes--C.

Ringo because you are from Texas, and some of you people on the other side of the Big Pond that like storys of the Old West. I put these these Storys up a year or so ago for Smokey from Down Under and Chester 7777. :)

I had done these Storys for a Phoenix News Paper over 30 years ago.They were doing Storys on the Old Pioneers in the early days of the Old Southwest that were early Settlers of the Arizona Territory. :uhuh:

There is also a Story about Pancho Villa and my My Grandfather Running Guns to Pancho Villa. Maybe that Winchester 1894 was one of them? :fear2:

This was a copy of the First Draft of the storys so the Queens English might not be correct, but it is readable ;)

Hi Larry, sorry about that. When I was last here using a computer, I was coming down with a bad case of the cold and not feeling too well. Today I am still reeling from it but thankfully, starting to get better. :-))

Im not sure what year(s) it was in but, my Grandfather fought against Pancho Villa somewhere between the years of 1904 to 1916. I will see if anyone in my family knows for sure and if so, i'll gladly post it here. I do know that my Grandfather fought and or chased Villa's bandits several times between those years. My grandfather also went into Mexico with the US Army when they went to see about apprehending or to destroy-Pancho Villa. I know all this took place before the US entered WWI.

Hi Mr. Brooks, I do remember the link you posted and enjoyed reading your writings very much. Now that would be really interesting if your grandfather had something to do with one of the guns my grandfather captured.

Hi Emmanuel, I did enjoy my dinner (I did not have a large steak as I was by myself but did have a Chicken-Fried Steak) but I was coming down with a bad cold by the time I got hime. Also, we had a cold front blowing through with periods of heavy rains (which I like watching) and I probably stayed outside longer than I should have.

Take care you all and Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks Keith, it has taken me about 20+ years of gathering stuff about Duke. Some of the photos in your collection I already had, and I wish I could have picked up the rest of it, but you know how that goes. Sometimes ya have it, and sometimes ya don't. Money is a fickle thing. Oh well, ya never know what's around the next bend in the road. Still might find some of those things yet.

Howdy All,
One of the more unusual items I've found is a bust of John Wayne sculpted out of soap. 14 bars of it so I was told. It is about 14 inches tall, and about 10 inches across. I am attaching a photo of it (taken with a cell phone camera, so the quality isn't that great), and I would welcome your opinions about it. So, let me know what y'all think, and let me know what's in your collections.
Best,

Hi Bob,

That's an interesting one, weird looking Duke ,
looks like someone else, don't know who though!!!
I myself, besides my treasured 'Red River 'D' Belt Buckle'
a T shirt and couple of hats, from the Birthplace.
only collect Films, books, photos, and the odd piece
of music.

after a few showers or baths it will start to erode away. :wacko:

Hi Bob, that is a neat Duke collectable. All I have now is a bumper-sticker that is some 35 or so years old. It says: "God bless John Wayne" and is wrinkled a bit from age? I had a John Wayne Beer can which had art images from the movie: Rio Grande or either She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" I forget which :rolleyes: anyway, I gave that to a forum member here some months ago. Besides a book or two, the only other John Wayne item I have (not VHS or DvD related is a full sheet of stamps that came out fairly recently. Wish I could say I had more Duke items. :huh:

Wupps, I almost forgot. I have one of those 5 inch bisque statues of the Duke, that the Franklin Mint had produced some several years ago. This one is of him as the Sheriff in Rio Bravo. It shows him walking outside the door to a building.

Searching the VERY dusty banks of my memory. I remember we had an oli painting that hung over the couch in the Den. This painting was of a scene out of Stagecoach. The scene is when the Apache Indians were just about to overwhealm the stagecoach. You see the character that the Duke played, lying on top of the stagecoach--firing on the indians to the rear of them. I do not remember who the artist was nor if this had been somekind of John Wayne released painting. I do remember that it was rather large appx 2 1/2 feet tall by about 4 or so feet long. Shamefully, when we moved out of that house, the painting was left. :angry:

I don't have it yet, but I want a John Wayne christmas tree ornament that I just saw in Carleton Cards. It had a picture of his face and a stage coach and it played lines from... "The Stage Coach." It cost forty bucks Canadian, which is a very steep price since the rest of the ornaments ranged from twenty to thirty bucks.

Wow, my brother and I have the same figure and both are sealed. I found ours at a close out store for .25 cents each. I also have a couple of Christmas ornaments, trading card sets, lunchboxes, several Nascar John Wayne cancer institue sponsored car models, and and some comemmorative pocket knives made by the Case co. There is more but it would take too long to list. :dead:

sun526,

I see you've been a member of the message board for quite some time, but just started posting more recently, after your introductory post when you first joined. We're glad to see you joining in the discussion.

Our son, now 10, has a birthday of May 28. He's also a big JW fan, and just a little bummed that he doesn't share a birthday with Duke.

Sounds like you have quite a few pieces of really neat JW stuff in quite a few categories. Most of our "collectibles" are in the category of artwork, but I have some of the Franklin Mint domed statuettes, and a couple of collector plates, and one roll of John Wayne Toilet Paper, along with a few movie posters, a coffee mug from the movie Rooster Cogburn (the ones that all the crew members received after the movie was finished), a belt buckle from the movie Brannigan, and of course quite a collection of videos and dvds and books.

Thanks Chester, I had some heart problems so I was off for a bit, but I enjoy being up to talking with fellow JW fans. Yeah I got a buch of clutter my wife says..... :lol: . The coffe cup and the belt buckle sound like some really rare collectibles. I would love to find some of the domed statues like you have......espeacially the one I have seen from Rio Bravo. In a John wayne connected way I found my copy of the Rio Bravo 45 rpm e.p. record that Dean Martin put out, it has a really cool picture sleeve in his "Dude" costume with his colt drawn. It has " Rio Bravo" and "My rifle, my pony, and me" but not "Cindy, Cindy".... oh, record companies, go figure. I mentioned in another post, my son really thinks it's cool his b-day is the same as the Duke's 5/26. To tell the truth I was pretty excited myself :D

Don't worry Chester, I would never use Duke that way. In fact, I would probably give up showers altogether if his head was the only soap I had :dead: No, he's just gonna set up on my computer desk and watch me talk to everyone here at the JWMB.

It looks like there are some pretty cool collections out there. I like those bendable JW dolls. I'm gonna have to watch ebay and see if I can find myself one. I have never seen them before.

I have a domed Franklin figure,

Also a Rio Bravo, theatre poster,
and a few photos.
Medals and stuff, from The Birthplace.

My most prized item, although not Duke
Is a couple of letters off Harry Jr.
Which I have framed in my study.

The Harry Carey Jr letters sound awesome. I got to meet Mr. Carey at a John Wayne convention and found him to be a great down to earth gentleman. His wife Marilyn was a true pleasure to talk to. I am a big fan of her father Paul Fix.
We talked about The Rifleman for quite awhile.
The best book I have read concerning John Wayne films is Harry's "In the Company of Heroes"
What a good guy!

Harry sold his book

also on a direct sale basis.

There were two prices, and for a premium
he would individually autograph, a book
personally.
That is one of the copies that I have.

He signed mine:-

You're absolutely right Rob, Mr. Carey is the best. I have corresponded with him several times via email, and he always answers my questions, even my real dumb ones. I have a great amount of respect for him. And I also agree about his book, "Company of Heroes." I've read it, and I think it is one of the best books on John Ford and John Wayne.

Hi


I got my copy of Company of Heroes some years ago after I wrote away for an atographed phoptograph. he sent me two pictures and as I had asked when his book would come out in UK he offered to sell me one from the States. As I didn't believe in credit cards then and didn't know if cheques were all right in the states (and I still don't) I sent cash I think it was twenty pounds. Marylin wrote back sending me an autographed copy of the book and a letter saying that it had cost her five dollars to change the currency into dollars, so I sent another letter with the correct money. Apart from my embarrasment I think it was alright and I agree that both Harry and Marilyn seem to be very nice.

a couple of photos off Harry.

Harry signed his book, to me, with


For Keith,
Fondest regards and fond memories
from The John Ford Stock Company,

Your friend

I also received a couple of notes,
handwritten and signed by him,
I wrote him, that he always seemed to get shot,
early, in the films he made!

He replied,


8-25-'99
Dear Keith,

Getting shot early, is the story of my life, in the movies.
Thank you for your kind note,
and I'm sure you'll enjoy the book.

I sent him the lyrics, that I have posted on this board,
and he replied,


Dear Keith,
Your delightful poem, is a work of art! I will show it, to all of our friends.
Marilyn printed it up on the computer, and I will have it framed.
By the way, the original CAREYS, hailed from Devon,

I have collected most of the Dukes movies but the last couple of years I have started collecting origanel posters(27x41),lobby cards.mugs.postcards and belt buckles.My favorite buckles are the eternal RED RIVER "D", JOHN WAYNE "AMERICAN" and "BRANNIGAN". I have a couple of knives,lunch box and a full bodied sillouette clock of the Duke on which the legs sway back and forth and it makes it look like he is walking...I would dearly love to pick up a few of his "Cast and Crew" coffee mugs but with prices in the $500+ range I will have to wait until I hit the lottery(or my wife gets a better job).JUST KIDDING DEAR...

Second, while trying to find this thread, I discovered another thread, with almost exactly the same title, and thought I'd reference it here (http://www.dukewayne.com/showthread.php?t=1645). Each thread had so many entries, I didn't know how it would flow if I merged them, so I didn't.

I was interested in this a while ago and posted all of the video and audio items I have in my collection under a post i called "I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours.

As well as whats there I have some posters lobbycards, loads of books, magazines, original production stills, autograph, pressbooks etc.

I stopped trying to collect everything to concentrate on the video and audio but as True Grit is my favourite movie do still buy things related to that.

Just as well really as I would have been bankrupt long ago!

It is Chester. The mug has a picture of Duke from The Searchers.
On the other side it has the words,"A man's got to have a code,a creed to
live by." Beneath that inscription is a stamped signature,John Wayne.
Beneath that it is signed and inscribed to me by Ethan Wayne .He also signed
and inscribed the mug's cardboard holder which, by the way,has some great
graphics of Monument Valley.

My collection is mostly paper items such as posters and the such, and some very nice works of art. I have been collecting for many years, and have decided to show some of the posters and such and the stories behind them. I have found through collecting, that most collectors have a story to tell about many of their items.
For example the attached picture is from my collection, it is an ORIGINAL 1939 release, Title Card from the movie STAGECOACH. It is in perfect condition with no tears, rips, or tape marks. It does not even have a pin hole in it. I have been told and do not know how true, but there are not many of these still around. This was actually posted on an auction house about 7-10 years ago, and no one bid on it. I was lucky with this one as it did not break the bank. Thank You for looking.
Does any one know how many are out there?:teeth_smile:

Hi Andy

Sorry I cannot help you with how many are out there. Not sure why but collectors in general seem to fall into two distinct categories, those who are willing to share what they have with other collectors and those who MAY tell you what they have but usually will NOT tell you and will definately not share!

Me I am of the first category.

Now going back to your stagecoach lobby card a really great item and thanks for sharing it.

Its interesting that for a Stagecoach lobby card, the picture on the left of the lobby card is from Liberty Valance. I wonder if it was for a first release for that country? I know that sometimes, for first releases in a foreign country, there were promoters in that country who designed the lobby cards and film posters.

this is another unusual item that I have in my collection, I have not seen many of these. It is a banner from The John Wayne airport in California. A freind of mine brought this from California for me on a visit to Ohio.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Bob

I never noticed the Liberty valance pic on there until you pointed it out! How thick am I as it hung in my bedroom where I saw it daily for several years.

Not all sure now if it is a first release especially as Liberty valance was so much later than stagecoach.

Whatever, it is still a nice lobby card and in good condition. there is nothing on it to indicate the date or the artist mores the pity.

Franklin Mint baffle me. I keep finding items made by them but not sold by them. Why? They no longer have a direct outlet in the UK so we don't see much stuff any more. Pity as they made some great Duke items.

Just found this 100th Anniversary Coin Collection on a US online store:

This is another unusual piece in my collection. It is a portrait of Duke etched in marble. The piece weighs a ton, is a limited edition 28/2975. I got this in the early 1980's. Thanks for looking

Next year will be the 50th anniversary for the movie THE ALAMO. I have in my collection one of the Mexican officers uniform from that movie. It is in pretty good shape for its age, and has all the Western Costume labels inside. There is no name associated with this uniform, I am sure it was for one of the many extras Duke had for the battle scenes. Thanks for looking.

That is really something. Anything original and part of history is the ultimate in collecting. My neighbour has her grandfather's (or maybe great grandfather's) tunic he wore at Rourke's Drift (the film, Zulu). It is now on display in the army museum in an inert cabinet.

I have just added another figurine to my collection from the John Wayne range from Sideshow Collectibles (see them on my web site from the link at the bottom) - Flying Tigers; only 2 to go. The box has a very good tribute to Duke:


Over the course of a career that spanned half a century, actor John Wayne went from parts as an uncredited bit player, to status as a cinematic institution. “Duke” ultimately created characters that were symbolic of America – what Americans could and should be.

In the mythical world of these films, Wayne portrayed a wide variety of classic American heroes; the independent frontiersman, wandering cowboy, gunslinger, hard-bitten soldier, professional lawman, and hardworking rancher. Some of the qualities commonly associated with these characters – self-reliance, honesty, courage, determination, and personal honor – made Wayne a symbol of traditional American values. Many of Wayne's performances also contained more subtle elements, displaying a quiet sense of humor and a low-key tendency to idealism, generosity, and sentiment. Wayne also frequently chose roles as the imperfect hero, playing protagonists who were short tempered, belligerent, stubborn, vain, obsessive, and possessed a surliness that ran the gamut from fairly grumpy to downright curmudgeonly. In his best performances, such qualities served to humanize his characters, allowing many movie-goers to identify with Wayne and see him not just as an idealized hero, but also as an everyman.

John Wayne was born Marian Morrison in Iowa in 1907. As a young boy, his family moved to California, where later Morrison attended the University of Southern California, on a football scholarship. While still at USC, he began working as a studio prop man, and in 1926, he began appearing as an extra and in minor parts. By the early 1930's under the stage name John Wayne, he had numerous roles in 'B' movies with titles such as Range Feud and The Big Stampede. It was not until 1939 that his performance as the Ringo Kid in John Ford's Stagecoach earned him the status as a major figure in the film industry. He became a start, and by the end of his career, had appeared in more that 175 films.

John Wayne is probably best remembered for his work in his later movies. The most engaging characters he created – roles such as Thomas Dunson in Red River (1948), Sergeant Stryker in the 1949 movie Sands Of Iwo Jima (for which he received an Oscar nomination), Captain Nathan Brittles in She Wore A Yellow Ribbon (1949), Ethan Edwards in The Searchers (1956), and Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 movie True Grit (for which he won the 'Best Actor' Oscar) – where men whose lives have bridged changing eras, with personas shaped by their own personal histories of loss and uncertainty. His final performance, as aging gunfighter dying of cancer in The Shootist (1976), reflected aspects of the Duke's own life at that point – he passed away from cancer in 1979.

John Wayne is one of the most celebrated actors to ever set foot on a Hollywood movie set. He was a man of tradition, honor and influence, an embodiment of American values. Wayne, with an incredible career spanning five decades and featuring 142 leading roles, a motion picture record, carved out an incredible niche in American pop culture. Posthumously, John Wayne's legend still lives on. He was awarded both the Congressional Gold Medal, honoring his distinguished achievements and contributions, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor. He has also consistently ranked in the top ten of Harris Poll's annual listing of America's favorite movie stars, something no other star has achieved posthumously. John Wayne's appeal was uniquely American; rooted in his rasping growl of a voice, and bolstered by roles that became the embodiment of American values.

I have a rare piece, it is a cardboard standee from the movie FLYING LEATHERNECKS, it is about 5 feet tall and 3 feet wide, the color is vivid and bright. It is hard to find any original release stuff for this movie. I chose this over the one sheet because of it being rare.
Take Care
