The Duke's Best Westerns
AMC will broadcast an all-day marathon of John Wayne movies tomorrow on Saturday, January 8th.
At AMC's blog, Robert Silva offers his view of John Wayne's best westerns. You can read the piece via the below link:
Like Silva, I would list The Searchers and True Grit in the top five, but I would move up The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and Fort Apache, as well as The Shootist, Wayne's final great film.
It should be noted that the late, great John Ford directed Wayne in The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and Fort Apache. Henry Hathaway directed True Grit and Don Siegel directed The Shootist.
