The Duke was born 100 years ago on May 26, 1907. Last night Kathy and I watched "The Quiet Man" again. It still is a great movie! I find it strange that it's one of my favorites because when I think of him I picture him more as a cowboy or soldier.
He's one of the reasons that I always wanted to see the west and south west. Every boy knew who Trooper Thorton, Sgt. Striker, Ethan Edwards and Rooster Cogburn were. He always had the fastest gun, best friend, prettiest girl, ugliest enemy and always knew exactly what to do. And of course, was the bravest man alive who always did the right thing.
Enough said - he was GREAT!
