    The thing I remember the most about Wayne is that I'm impressed with his willingness to make a patriotic war movie even in middle of Vietnam War, a deeply unpopular war. The first full Wayne movie I saw was the Green Berets.

    I think the Green Berets was the last most patriotic war movie, with most of movies being anti-war in post-Vietnam era. I think it would take another decade and a half to see pro-US and heroic war movies to be made again.
    Fully over weight running around in a studio. That had to be his worst film even beating out "Randy rides again".

    He made many very entertaining movies with a large fan base but not the best of actors.

      A strange film,wherein Wayne's character came up with such gems as, " Those Claymore Mines are great! "
