    This was the big suprise that I knew was coming but could not spread the word till it became official.
    I hope a few members can come to this years celebration and spend time with one of the great ladys of the screen.
    This is a dream come true for me.

    Wow! This is very exciting news!

    I encourage as many as possible to try to attend this event - it is really a lot of fun to be hangin' out with so many John Wayne fans in the town of his birth. The events are planned well, and you will NOT be disappointed. The air-conditioned venue is a plus (it was REALLY hot last year!).

    Going to the local theater and seeing Duke on the BIG screen along with Maureen O'Hara, with other JW/MO'H fans is an experience you will not find anywhere else.

    We are planning to go, and we hope to see many of our JWMB friends there!

    I am tentatively planning on going. Will be trying to get my dad to go if he is interested.

    FYI...Yes, it has been awhile since I posted on here. Don't get to mad at me for being gone. :)

    Not only is the air-conditioned venue for the Birthplace Museum Benefit Dinner very nice indeed (yes, it did get really hot under the tent last year)--with restrooms right there as well--BUT the Iowa Theatre has upgraded their projection equipment so that the experience of watching the films will be even nicer!



    AND we'll have access to a high-definition Blu-ray copy of "The Quiet Man" scanned at 4K FROM THE ORIGINAL NITRATE NEGATIVE which will be a massive improvement in image quality from what's been available until now. Frank Tarzi of Olive Films, who is releasing the restored version said:

    "A 3-strip Technicolor film like The Quiet Man needs special care. We've done a 4K scan off the original negative from the studio's archives but that's just the beginning. There's a very complicated re-mastering process that needs to be done for a Technicolor film like this and we want to get it right."

    A so-called 4K scan is roughly 4,000 lines of resolution, over 4 TIMES the quality of Blu-ray (4,096 H x 2,160 V; Blu-ray is 1920 H x 1080 V); it's the scan quality Hollywood uses when digitizing films to restore them for showing in digital movie theaters).

    For those of you who would be interested in having your own restored Blu-ray version of "The Quiet Man" it will be available for purchase on January 22, 2013. You can pre-order it now at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Quiet-Annivers...et+man+blu-ray

    OK, it's official. I'm going! Yay!!

    I'm delighted that the Iowa Theatre has upgraded its equipment because the projections I saw there in 2011 were very bad. (Sorry, Iowa Theatre.)

    Rio Grande and Big Jake also available on Blu-ray and I hope they use those blu-rays in addition to the blu-ray of The Quiet Man.

    Almost five months to bone up on everything Maureen O'Hara. :)
