John Wayne a Winner

The movie Tough Guy contest has a winner – John Wayne.  He got a good start at being a movie tough guy right from the start.  When he was young he went to Hollywoood where he initially was an extra and a prop man.  During his spare time, he had the opportunity to visit with an aging Wyatt Earp, legendary lawman from the old west.  Many know of Wyatt Earp and his famous associate Doc Holiday and the Shootout at the OK Corral.

John Wayne, originally Marion Robert Morrison, was a 6 foot 4 inch man looking to define himself as an actor.  He would later say how he based his movie portrayals on what he learned from his conversations with Wyatt Earp.

Now for the winner of a Free copy of the Battle of Shiloh documentary… I am in the process of making contact with the winner.  I will post the winner’s name as soon as notification is verified.

On a side note, Clint Eastwood came in 2nd place in the Tough Guy contest.
