Hello, Dear Readers! Many of you participated in my little trivia quiz at the end of my post on THE SHOOTIST last week. You correctly guessed three out of the six other films Wayne died in (THE COWBOYS, THE ALAMO, SANDS OF IWO JIMA). Here’s the three other John Wayne onscreen death scenes:
- REAP THE WILD WIND (1942): Killed by a giant octopus (shades of Bela Lugosi in BRIDE OF THE MONSTER!)
- THE FIGHTING SEABEES (1944): Shot down by a sniper (also happens in SANDS OF IWO JIMA)
- WAKE OF THE RED WITCH (1949): Yet another giant octopus! (stay out of the water, Duke!)
And there you have it! Thanks for joining in, and keep watching movies!
