Since I spent all day on the site of the 1958-59 filming of John Wayne's The Alamo, Happy Shahan's Alamo Village, I thought I should impart a small bit of DUKE WISDOM from The Alamo:
[JW as Davy Crockett to Linda Cristal, "Flaca," on the secret of life]: "To feel useful in this old world. To hit a lick against what's wrong or to say a word for what's right, even though you get whalloped for saying that word...There's right and there's wrong. You're gonna do one or the other. You do one, and you're living. You do the other, and you may be walking around, but you're dead as a beaver hat."
