Who played JD Cahill's son's in the Cahill US Marshall the John Wayne movie?

User Avatar
This is one of my favorite John Wayne movies and the name of the young actors that played JD Cahill's sons were Gary Grimes and Clay O'Brien. I thought they both did a great job. When sharing the screen with someone with the 'presence' that Wayne had could diminish lessor actors but the boys didn't lose an inch.

Did John Wayne ever play as a bad guy?

User Avatar
He did a couple of times. But his character when playing a criminal was always good at heart. I think he made a point to make the outlaw have a code of ethics so the audience could relate to them on some level. For example, in his last movie The Shootist his character was a gunfighter. But Wayne portrayed him not as a mean man but as a flawed and all too human man. Other films John Wayne in which played disreputable characters include: Trouble Along the Way -- corrupt college football coach Reap the Wild Wind -- makes money by causing sea wrecks and then "salvaging" the wrecks, little better than a pirate Pittsburgh -- self-centered industrialist In all of these films, and in the others that I can recall, Wayne's character has the integrity to recognize that was he is doing is wrong, and to willingly accept the consequences of this wrong. I've seen over 120 films with The Duke, and in none did he play an out and out bad guy.

What sort of fish was in The Quiet Man?

What a great question! This was one of my favorite scenes from the movie. I think the priest was fishing for trout. Thanks to Maureen O'Hara the big guy got away.

Asked in John Wayne, Celebrity Sexual Orientation

What was John Wayne's sexual orientation?

User Avatar
John Wayne lived in a time when sexual orientation was not openly discussed, but all indications are that he was heterosexual. --- As far as we are concerned, John Wayne was a straight man. He had children with his wives and there is no evidence of him being gay, not that there would be anything wrong with that; he's still the DUKE! It's surprising how often this question comes up. Wayne was many things but gay was not one of them. He was married three times (all women), fathered seven children, had several high profile affairs (also women) and was heterosexual.

They co-starred in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance and in The Shootist . They were both on-screen in How the West Was Won , but never together, and Wayne's appearence was little more than a cameo.

Did John Wayne own a horse?

User Avatar
He did. At the time of his death in 1979 he sold his last horse, named Dollar, to a private citizen for $15,000. Although Wayne would be the first to admit he really didn't like horses, he always rode nice ones. He needed a tall horse because he was 6'4", usually at least 16HH and most were chestnuts with tall stockings and wide blaze, and all were Quarter Horses.
