Rare John Wayne Films on AMC This Weekend
The Florida Masochist reports that:
AMC (American Movie Classics) is airing two John Wayne movies this weekend that haven’t been seen in many years. First tonight at 8 p.m. it will be Island in the Sky (1953).
But more notably the Granddaddy of all disaster movies, The High and the Mighty (1954) will be aired tomorrow night at 8 p.m. Both these films were kept out of general circulation for many years.
Many of the lesser known John Wayne films are bloody awful. Indeed, with the very notable exception of “The Quiet Man (1952),” I can’t offhand think of a Wayne film where he wasn’t playing a cowboy or a soldier that I much liked.
Still, the Duke was an American original and one wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity to see all of his films at least once.
