God bless America, John Wayne style

Reader Stephen forwarded the most awesome video clip. It was filmed in 1970. Somehow I doubt it could be recreated today with the current crop in Hollywood.

Check. It. Out.



Thanks Stephen!

  5. If you liked that, check this one out. The whole thing is good, but it gets fantastic at 1:55.

  6. Imagine how Americans in 1956 viewed the future of their country.

    Long video but just looking at random sections will take you back to this country's peak of promise.

  8. I was intrigued to note that Tommy Smothers, who had just been fired from CBS a year before for pushing the boundaries of satire a bit too far, and who would have disagreed with the Duke on just about all of the issues of the day, was able to join in with him in this joint declaration of love for their country. Yes, Virginia, there was a time when Americans could disagree on some things and still stand shoulder to shoulder in loving the country we all shared. Those were the days, indeed.
