John Wayne special scenes and
memorable movie moments

"Keeping" a certain John Wayne movie scene, moment or item was easy. Picking was much harder as there are so many to choose from. I chose these listed below for the love of the situation and what it meant to me. by Vicki

As a "keeper" I have claimed the right to watch over this special list for no other reason than the honor of doing it and for the fun of it. There are many other "keepers" of classic films & characters, but I am the first one to join who is a John Wayne "keeper."

A "keeper" is any one who wants to join and remind others of those special Hollywood moments. If you would like to learn more about this please click button below!!
