Short notice, for sure. But certainly worth your while. And I’d be wasting my time to think I needed to tell you how great this film is.

John Wayne
(born 
Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979)

Here’s a great shot of John Wayne, John Ford and the rest of the cast and crew shooting The Searchers (1956) near the Three Sisters in Monument Valley.

At 7PM is John Boorman’s Deliverance (1972); The Searchers will start around 9:30. If you think you might make it out, let me know. It’d be fun to say hello.

Sam Elliott (interviewed in the current issue of Cowboys & Indians): “One of the great perks of the movie business is that you get around and you get to be around some very interesting and talented people. One all sides of the camera. The first movie I starred in was a Western called Cactus (released in 1972 as Molly And Lawless John) with Vera Miles. We shot in Santa Fe; we did some interiors at Studio Center in the San Fernando Valley. One day John Ford showed up — he was there to visit Vera. John Ford! That stopped the show for a while. It might as well have been the pope.”
