    Hi Mike, and thanks ;-)) Also, for the record for those who don't know but, on Mikes list are TWO more John Wayne movies-which are: Sands of Iwo Jima and the Flying Tigers.

    Also, did you know that Duke was put up for an Oscar for his role in Sands.... He lost out to the likes of: Sir Lawrence Olivier, Gregory Peck (for Twelve O'Clock High) and I think Cary Grant and one other.

    Im disappointed in you Richard--there's no WAR or WESTERN movies on your list-ohhhhhhhhh I forgot, you live too far away from here to be able to know what a Western is. :lol::lol: :lol::lol: BWAAAHAHAHAHA. Just kidding though ;-)) I've seen and liked most that are on your list.

    PS,for the first time last night-I got to watch Harrison Ford, Willem deFoe & James Earl Jones (love the sound of his voice) in: Patriot Games. I give this movie a ten out of ten on a scale of 1-8-with ten being the highest.

    I watched "Taken" with Liam Neeson a couple of weks ago....not a bad flick at all. Couple of gaps that I think will be filled in on the DVD.

    It's pretty much a no nonsense mission oriented bad guys die movie with no love story or prolonged slap fights.

    Lord of the Rings
    The Producers (1968 version)
    Can Can
    (Juliet Prowse still kills me)
    Casablanca (maybe the best movie ever made)
