As I crawled the Virtual Dumpster I call the Internet...
I was thinking about when my husband got transferred from lovely Northern Cali, to the desert of Las Vegas, NV. This lead me to think about nuclear fall out. And then led me to the "A-Bomb killed John Wayne Theory". No...I am not going to blog about that...But my image search allowed me to see The Duke with no shirt on. I have never! There are only 3 of them I could pick out of the Dumpster. I thought to share them with you.
Paula Cole was a come and go sensation with 4 top 40 hits 5 albums believe it or not 1997-2007 [wiki]
Finding pectoral pubic hair (isn't that what it is called? hee hee) on John Wayne made me think..."was that sort of display even allowed or common" in the days even prior to censoring Barbara Eden's belly button and or didn't you hear about how they taped over the teenage girl's nipples in "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" when they got wet so not to show? And that was like the 90's!
So I searched for him shirtless.
John Wayne would be 103 yrs old and even in the times I watched him in movies all through my life, he was almost old enough to be my daddy's daddy. But he does something with his slow talking charm that made him super sexy.
He is the Duke and I must of seen all his movies, but now that I can check the internet out for a listing, I might find one I did not see (I am sure there are a few). I saw him in a cameo on some Mae West movie...or was that Gable...All those B/W classic men basically no different from today's icons or not unlike Marilyn Monroe was to American men.
