Filmstam here I have been a John Wayne fan for almost 40 years but I started to collect videos and DVDs and all things about the Duke about 25 years ago because
he was a hero of my era and still is. I have about 135 to-date and the first film to get me hooked was the quiet man.

My wife and I (and kids, too) are from the west coast of the US, in California. However, my family's heritage hails from the County Sutherland (though please don't ask me for any details - I don't really know any more than I've just told you).
Well, you are in good company with our UK group - arthurarnell, ethanedwards, Robbie, Duke Pilgrim, Emmanuel . . . my mind just went blank . . . I know there are others . . . anyway, a great bunch!
