August 7th, 2003, 04:39 AM
you havent heard much of me the last time, but now I am back.
I bought the John Wayne Trivia book, with 501 questions, I try to ask you every day a new question.
After 2 days I give the answer on the question so everyone has chance to answer It oke?
this should be fun and good luck with It.
"they outnumber us four to one. Do we talk or fight?"
To whom did John Wayne pose this question-and in what film?
good luck with It

To Rock Hudson (Col. Langdon) in The Undefeated.
August 7th, 2003, 09:30 AM
I am pretty sure the man above is right. The Undefeated was a decent action film, and Rock Hudson and the Duke had good on screen chemistry.
August 7th, 2003, 10:39 AM
I think Araner is right :rolleyes: Just before JW and Rock Hudson ride out to talk with the bandit leader :huh:
August 7th, 2003, 02:00 PM
I agree it is from The Undefeated. Course I'll watch it again just to be sure. This ought to be fun. Thanks Looknodie

I thought the same as you did but you are all wrong, sorry.
I gives the answers tomorrow or this evening to give the others time to answer.

Ain't that the scene from Fort Apache - when ole Hank Fonda answers something like "You seem to be impressed by numbers very easily, Captain..."?
August 8th, 2003, 05:57 PM
That lines defiently not from the undefeated, I think Itdo's right its "Fort Apache".
August 9th, 2003, 01:18 AM
I give the answer now, Robbie and Itdo were right.
To henry fonda, his martinet superior in Fort Apache (1948), when faced the warring Indians
I'll you will answer the further 500 questions to.

JW Fan these trivia questions are great, keep up the good work.
July 24th, 2009, 11:48 AM
I see this post has dropped out. I have a book of 500 questions about John Wayne. If the group wants too, I will start posting the questions if people want to participate?
July 24th, 2009, 01:30 PM
Go for it!
July 24th, 2009, 01:45 PM
Sounds like fun.
July 24th, 2009, 02:13 PM

Sounds good to me! It seems a few of us have done this over the years. Another thread is here (http://www.dukewayne.com/showthread.php?p=64771), where you can see what questions have already been asked. It looks like I dropped the ball quite a while ago (or maybe nobody responded to that last question? I don't know.).
Anyway, feel free to use whatever format is comfortable for you. I attempted something similar to what Mark (dukefan1) uses in the "What Movie is It?" game, but you may find something different works for you (BTW, I developed a whole new respect for what Mark does every week. His reliability and dedication are to be applauded!!).
However you choose to do it, I'm sure we'll have fun!!
July 25th, 2009, 02:50 PM
Well-I guess I will give it a try and see what happens. I will post a question and the answer to the previous question every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to keep it moving along. Some of the questions are easy some hard. Let's see what happens and if the group wants to participate.
July 25th, 2009, 03:16 PM
Sounds good to me.
July 25th, 2009, 03:34 PM
We look forward to it!
Chester :newyear: and the Mrs. :angel1:

Count me in as well, although after this week I am on leave for a fortnight but after that its fine.
July 27th, 2009, 06:50 AM
OK-Here we go, this is the first question, it is rather easy, but I have added some twists.
What was the name of the submarine Wayne commanded in OPERATION PACIFIC from 1951? Who was his female co-star and what other film did she star with Duke?
July 27th, 2009, 10:19 AM
This will be a fun game, Andy. I only have one suggestion, that you have the members PM you with their answers and you post the winners with your next question. That way, more people get to try and answer the question instead of just the first person who logged in and knew it. It's just a suggestion. The game is yours to run how you feel.
Now, to answer you're quiz, I'll take a stab. The Sub was the Thunderfish. His co-star was Patricia Neal. she also acted with Duke in the film In Harm's Way.
July 27th, 2009, 10:23 AM
That is a great idea, a PM will be great and I will post the winners as suggested. The answer is correct . As a side note, anyone wanting an autograph from Patricia Neal can get one personalized by her by sending a request to her address of:
45E End Ave.
New York, NY 10028
The next question will be Wednesday.
July 29th, 2009, 01:23 AM
Good job, Andy and Mark!
Andy, very nice touch to add that info about Patricia Neal, which ties in with the question.
Looking forward to the next one!
July 29th, 2009, 06:51 AM
Here is the next question-PLEASE PM me your answer and I will post the winners along with the correct answer on Friday.
In 1988 the National Film Preservation Act was passed by Congress, it would recognize 25 filma a year as American Treasures. The question-What was the first John Wayne movie to be enshrined?
July 30th, 2009, 01:08 PM
I have had a few guesses, no correct answer yet, I guess this is a hard one??????
July 31st, 2009, 06:49 AM
I had many guesses, STAGECOACH, RED RIVER, THE LONG VOYAGE HOME, none of these were the correct answer,:cry2: though Stagecoach and Red River are on a later list. The correct answer is THE SEARCHERS.:wink_smile: I tied it in with ChiliBill's The Searchers thread, but no one guessed it.
Today's question will be easier.
Impressionists often use the word "pilgrim" when doing John Wayne. In only 2 films did Duke actually call someone Pilgrim, name the 2 films...Please PM your answer to me.
August 3rd, 2009, 08:35 AM
Everyone who responded got the correct answer, THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE and MCCLINTOCK.
Todays question is also on the easy side:
In BRANNIGAN Duke twice surprised the bad guys with a similar but unorthodox entrances and uttered the same phrase both times, WHAT WAS IT?
Please PM your answers to me.
August 5th, 2009, 08:51 AM
This question was way too easy, eveyone got the correct answer. The Duke would kick down the door and say, "knock, knock".
Todays question will be tougher.
After a run-in with the King George's men under George Sanders command, what order did John Wayne give his band of rebels in ALLEGHENY UPRISING(1939)?
Please PM your answer.
August 10th, 2009, 11:27 AM
No one even tried this one, I am not posting the answer, I will leave it up there for the future. I guess I have to stick to the easy ones.
Here is the next question:
Under what name did the Wayne character box in THE QUIET MAN??
Please PM me your answer for this EEEAAASSSYYYY one.
August 12th, 2009, 07:40 AM
I received a couple of correct answers and a couple of close ones. The correct answer is: JW boxed under the name Trooper Thorn. I received many Sean Thorton, but that was not his boxing name.
Who played Wayne leading lady Vera Ralston's father in their 2 films together?? A hint-he was a B-movie director.
PM me your answer Good Luck
August 14th, 2009, 06:34 AM
I thought this would be harder, but everyone who replied got it correct, Hugo Haas.
"They outnumber us four to one. Do we talk or fight?" To whom did John Wayne pose this question and in what film?
Good Luck have a good weekend,
August 17th, 2009, 08:20 AM
I received one correct answer, it was Henry Fonda in Fort Apache.
