Although The Duke is no longer with us, his legacy and the love America has for him are everlasting. So, you can expect this year’s John Wayne Birthday Celebration to be one heckuva shindig. Being held May 24 – 25 at the John Wayne Birthplace in Winterset, Iowa, the weekend-long affair will be a tribute to Maureen O’Hara. The actress starred opposite Wayne in several classic films, including The Quiet Man, Rio Grande, and McLintock!, all of which will be screened during the festivities. O’Hara will make personal appearances around town, among them at a dinner for the revelers gathered to honor Wayne and the redheaded firebrand.
