If John Wayne tells you to watch a TV show, you better watch it!

What a legend. There will never be another like Duke.

Two things I'd like to comment on: first, Wayne says 'I'm not in it...I wish I were, though'. My understanding is that Arness got the role because Wayne turned it down!

Secondly, he said 'You better get used to him'...well, I think the fact that the show ran for twenty years and spawned four 'reunion' movies says that we really DID get used to him in a big way!! :)

Here's an unknown fact. CBS originally cancelled Gunsmoke in 1967, but the wife of CBS's chairman William Paley intervened to keep the show on the air. CBS changed their mind and instead of Gunsmoke getting the ax Gilligan's Island got the ax.

Saw an interview a few years ago of James Arness and he was a real nice guy. Spoke intelligently and if I remember right, it turned out he was also a war hero/veteran.
