    That's mine too.

    I've got it on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. I've been waiting for it to come out on VUDU.

    That line was used several times in Big Jake. My favorite was...

    That dialog was really the whole movie in a few lines. The difference between the rugged, original generation that built things and the second generation that just maintained them. I won't get too political but the current generation has only slipped from there.

    So many...so many to choose. I guess my favorite "quote" is his Republic speech to Travis in The Alamo.

    “I may sound like a bible beater yelling up a revival at a river crossing camp meeting but that don’t change the truth none, there’s right and there’s wrong. You gotta do one or the other. You do the one and you’re living, you do the other and you may be walking around but you’re dead as a beaver hat.”

    - Col. Davy Crockett in The Alamo 1960

    Lots of great quotes to choose from but I am surprised I would be the first to cite this one from one of my favorite movies True Grit.

    Mattie Ross: You never told me you had a wife.
    Rooster Cogburn: Oh, well, I didn't have her long. My friends was a pack of river rats and she didn't crave their society so she up and left me and went back to her first husband who was clerkin' in a hardware store in Paducah. "Goodbye, Reuben," she says, "the love of decency does not abide in you!"That's a dee-vorced woman talkin' for you, about decency. Well, I told her. I said, "Goodbye, Nola, and I hope that nail-sellin' ******* makes you happy this time!"

    The world sure could use a few more men with the caliber of character that John Wayne exemplified.

    :bow
