They've Remade True Grit -- Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn? Really?

Started by Jack Neulist. Last reply by Native Son Mar 9. 3 Replies

Title says it all. The remake, coming out soon, stars of all people Bridges and Matt Damon in the lead roles.  Just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. The Cohen Brothers are responsible, so it…Continue

Falling Off a Horse

Started by Yankee Cowboy Bob. Last reply by Yankee Cowboy Bob Nov 30, 2009. 2 Replies

In the heyday of the B movies (especially the 1930s), money was tight. Time was at a premium, because these things were filmed in weeks, not months or years. Sometimes, they were filmed in a few…Continue

Well, movies will perhaps be about as good as statues once were. Then he would be remembered.

Finally a group that recognizes a great "man" in all senses of the word. Sadly enough, I hate to think we will see no more like him.

I am glad there is some mention of him on his birthday -- here, here Bob. He was a great actor and will always be remembered in America, because the great American films are no strangers to him.

I'm posting this on Duke's birthday, and wrote a short tribute to him here.

I always liked the Duke's quotes. When we moved up here which we love it here. But I left everything I knew to move here ' The quote,"Courage is being scarred to death, but saddleing up anyway. Helped me a lot . It was scary at first. But we made it.

Duke played it two ways: First, he played himself, said he did not actually "act". Second, he played characters that had something of himself in them, or characters that he wanted to be. Not always, of course. But he did not play a psycho slasher or some character that you did not want your kids to see.

When you read about John Wayne's real life you realize he was just a man, but a man who tried to live his life with the values that his on screen persona displayed. He did so with a great deal of success. A great man and a great example even today.

"I know nothing of the military, but i've led various research projects and assignments at uni; make sure you get to know the people, and be friendly to them. Admiration goes a lot further than fear."
