"...A director friend of his, john houston if I remember, told him to point his feet when he walked, to attract more attention to his character. This walk is very noticeable in these rio bravo films, and the actor adopted this walk in real life..."
Good stories - thank you.
I always thought the "John Wayne walk" was graceful and deliberate, simultaneously. Like a ballet dancer with hemorrhoids!
But yes, I'm a fan. Red River, The Searchers, The Man who Shot Liberty Valance are all wonderful movies that I continue to enjoy. The Hateful Eight was a good western for the new millenium , but they don't and can't make em like John Wayne anymore.
