I found this information from imbd and thought it would be great to comment on this as a topic.
What are your thoughts about this and opinion about Burt Lancaster?During the late 1950s John Wayne approached Lancaster, suggesting they make a western together. Lancaster laughed off the idea, suggesting they would need Kirk Douglas in the film as well. In reality, Lancaster would not work with Wayne, Hollywood's most prominent Republican supporter who had been actively involved in the McCarthy witch hunts as a founding member and later President of the right-wing Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals. Lancaster had only agreed to co-star opposite Gary Cooper, a moderate Republican who gave a vague testimony to the House Unamerican Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1947, after Cooper had starred in the anti-McCarthyism western High Noon (1952). Despite this, Lancaster joined a minute's silence for Wayne on 11 June 1979 while filming Cattle Annie and Little Britches (1981) after Wayne died in Los Angeles.
I knew he was a very liberal person, and must admit that I didn't care much for his politics, but I do like overall his acting. Some of the movies I did like him in was: From Here to Eternity, Elmer Gantry, and Field of Dreams. What movie did you think Duke was talking about that he wanted to work a western movie with Lancaster?
