The Duke Becomes a C-Note

Happy 100th Birthday, John Wayne! I've re-upped this album which I originally posted a while back.

John Wayne - America, Why I Love Her [1973]
Mp3, Stereo, 320 kbps, 68.2 MB

1. Why I Love Her
2. The Hyphen
3. Mis Raices Estan Aqui (My Roots Are Buried Here)
4. The People
5. An American Boy Grows Up
6. Face the Flag
7. The Good Things
8. The Pledge of allegiance
9. Why Are You Marching, Son
10. Taps

"Let's make a little noise, Colorado..."

A quick scene from Rio Bravo (1959), John Wayne's best film and the best Western ever made. (1:19 min. / SFW)

Rio Bravo best western ever made. You got that 100 percent correct.
It just had been released in a 2 dvd set.

They just don't make 'em like that anymore.

Here's to the Duke!

"Mi Raices Estan Aqui" - translates to "My roots are here," Duke sez "My ruts are buried here," it annoyed me then and it annoys me now.

My dad had this album on 8 track when I was a kid! It's hilarious - sadly, the humor isn't intentional.

John Ford's, "The Searchers" with John Wayne is far and away the best thing Wayne has ever done.
BTW thanks for this. It's a real hoot. My Grandpa had it.
