…and The High and The Mighty have always been my favorites of all his films.
I have always considered Islands a very surreal work which showed Wayne in a very human and fragile light. Not as crack-sure of himself and very close to “breaking”.
Both have finally been (I suspect) released by the Wayne Trust and can now be seen on AMC.
If you’ll pay attention, you’ll recognize the spoof movie Airplane 's gags on The High and The Mighty
One thing which bothers me (and what I would like y’all to comment on), is that Matthew Modine is introducing and commenting on both films, and a closeup of Matthew is featured right alongside a picture of the Duke.
Does anyone know if Modine is going to play John Wayne in a bio-pic?
Anyone remember his impression of Wayne in the Kubrick pic Fulll Metal Jacket ?
