    Yes.

    The thing is he was a great western actor the unfortunate thing is he did over 250 films and people only ever remember about twelve of them...LOL
    I'm just saying is all.

    some of my favs include;
    Rio Bravo
    El dorado
    The Cowboys
    True Grit
    Rooster Cogburn
    The Shootist

    There are more but these ones I never get tired off.
    It's truly a shame that Wayne was not in the magnificent seven and even a greater shame him and Eastwood never did a western together.

    A lot of people don't know the role of the Wacko Kid in Blazing Saddles was written for John Wayne to play --- and Wayne wanted to do it saying it looks like fun, but his manager talked him out of it, claiming it would damage Wayne's reputation as a wholesome hero.

    It's a shame it never came to be.
    Just imagine if Wayne did it.
    It would have been fantastic.

    I've been watching every John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson movie I can over the past year. It's been a lot of fun.
