SUMMER UNDER THE STARS: JOHN WAYNE
August 12, 2017

It’s the Duke’s day with 11 films.

Mariah’s Picks

Stagecoach (1939-12:15 pm/11:15 am c)

The film that started it all.


The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962-5:45 pm/4:45 pm c)

“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.”


The Quiet Man (1952-8 pm/7 pm c)

This week’s Essential with host Alec Baldwin and special guest William Friedkin, the Oscar-winning director of The French Connection.  Shot entirely in Ireland.


The Searchers (1956-10:30 pm/9:30 pm c)

How many directors would have their magnum opus with their 115th film!  The Duke named his youngest son after the character he played in this film.
