Are you a movie buff? If so, can you believe that John Wayne would be 100 years old this year? Doesn't seem possible does it? I still love John Wayne movies. Call them simplistic or him only an average actor, but one thing you knew, in his movies the "good guy" was going to win. Can you even imagine "The Duke" trying to "get in touch" with his feelings ala Tom Cruise? Say what you will but John Wayne confidently portrayed someone who knew exactly who he was and took both the credit and the lumps for that. And isn't that what a "man of action" is supposed to do? No wonder he is known as the "quintessential American."
