John Wayne passed away on 11th June 1979, a few short weeks after his 72nd birthday and the world lost maybe its greatest ever movie star. Whilst it is true Wayne could never achieve the venom of DeNiro or the laid back charm of Eastwood he did dominate the screen in every scene he appeared in - John Wayne, Number one - without a doubt!
And so the tribute closes with the inscription from the great man's headstone.
TOMORROW IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE
COMES INTO US AT MIDNIGHT, VERY CLEAN
IT'S PERFECT WHEN IT ARRIVES AND IT PUTS ITSELF IN OUR HANDS
IT HOPES WE'VE LEARNED SOMETHING FROM YESTERDAY
