John Wayne: A Love Song

"IN THE summer of 1943 I was eight, and my father and mother and small brother and I were at Peterson Field in Colorado Springs. A hot wind blew through that summer, blew until it seemed that before August broke, all the dust in Kansas would be in Colorado, would have drifted over the tar-paper barracks and the temporary strip and stopped only when it hit Pikes Peak. There was not much to do, a summer like that: there was the day they brought in the first B-29, an event to remember but scarcely a vacation programme. There was an officers' club, but no swimming pool; all the officers' club had of interest was artificial blue rain behind the bar. The rain interested me a good deal, but I could not spend the summer watching it, and so we went, my brother and I, to the movies.
We went three and four afternoons a week, sat on folding chairs in the darkened hut which served as a theatre, and it was there, that summer of 1943 while the hot wind blew outside, that I first saw John Wayne."

A very good article. Read the rest by clicking here.

John Wayne in 3D

As most John Wayne fans know, he did one film in 3D, Hondo. However, I came across some photos of John Wayne on the internet, that have been transformed into 3D, and I thought I would share them with you. You will need to wear a pair of 3D glasses to see the 3D effect. Just click on each photo to enlarge it.  Enjoy!
