I've always been a big John Wayne fan. I’ve watched all his movies (his westerns are the best), many more than once. He personified American values and patriotic pride. In this patriotic essay, John Wayne recites a beautiful poetic piece written by another actor, and poet, John Mitchum. John Mitchum is the younger brother of Robert Mitchum. In his youth, with his brother, Robert, he traveled across America as a hobo and these adventures may be where his inspiration for this piece came from. You may better remember John Mitchum as Clint Eastwood's sidekick Detective DeGeorgio in the Dirty Harry film series, and again in The Outlaw Josey Wales. He co-starred with John Wayne in Chisum and El Dorado, and I believe he was also in the TV series F-Troop.
