Attention Parents of Future John Wayne Fans

This week two of the Duke's long-missing movies, THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY and ISLAND IN THE SKY, are released on DVD. These films were recently aired on AMC and received the highest ratings in the channel's history.

As for the article's comment that maybe a 13-year-old isn't ready for Wayne's movies, I heartily disagree. Wayne's movies are timeless and in my experience are eagerly watched by young boys (RIO BRAVO is the favorite at our house). And what better role model for a young boy than the Duke, who exemplifies so many great qualities, including leadership, patriotism, determination, and courage under fire.
