Not the most complex of plots but there is a ferocity to the vengeance and a naivete in the romance that I like.

Oh well, googled John Wayne's height and a lot of anecdotal evidence that he was in the 6-3 to 6-4 range.

Wlad KO8 Marciano.

John Wayne's greatest movie is without doubt The Conqueror. He plays the infamous, great Genghis Khan with precision and a depth of complexity theretofore seen. A performance that is simply mesmerizing.

Wlad KO8 Marciano. A simple mismatch.

Although I disagree with you in this instance, your posts do make me laugh. In a good way.

"a performance that is simply mesmerizing"

It was for me. I could even hear a voice saying, "you are getting drowsy, drowsy--sleep--sleep--sleep."

Wayne and Stewart look pretty much the same height in their movies together and jimmy was a confirmed 6ft 3in.

Rocky KO 10

The truly great FIGHTER beats the the guy who was Koed brutally three times mostly by single shots (first solid shot for all intents and purposes ended all three bouts). Marciano KO 9 over Wlad.

Yeah, but Pidgeon was acted off the screen by Billie Dove.

And what about Ethan Hawke in his debut performance.

Of course, all of them skipped the sequel when they found out that William Katt had been cast.

They replaced Dove with Doris Day, who was famous for singing the Oscar winning "Secret Love" while playing Martha Jane Canary.

"Wayne and Stewart look pretty much the same height"

Yes, but was Wayne wearing his lifts?

Stewart was 6'3 really? I always thought he was of average height.



One thing i will concede is that Rock always has the ability to hurt Wlad for as long as the fight lasts. Wlad looks like he has had his soul taken anytime he gets hit flush. He is just very athletic and powerful for someone with slow feet to close distance on without getting caught in punching range.

John Wayne takes over Seattle in McQ and thrashes the beach.

Waldo took some huge flush shots from Peter in their 2nd fight, even after the bell, and didn't blink. I think people are underrating the problem with Marciano punching up at such an obtuse angle. Punching upward sucks, especially by that much. And really Wlad's footwork is so much fast and covers so much more ground. It's merely a case of Matador versus Tiny Bull.

It only took 3 body shots from Brewster to suck the energy out of Wlad. 3 hard bombs to the liver and he was sucking for air after round 3..

Since then nobody has atacked his body.

The ribs will be the first target. Do you remember a thing called a body atack. The body blows take the power and stamina out of him.

For anyone interested in the question of John Wayne's real height,

I recommend googling

"Gary Cooper and John Wayne photographs"

The two men took at least two photos side by side, and Cooper looks CONSIDERABLY taller in both.

One shows them walking together inside (so on a level floor) with both apparently wearing sandals and Cooper seems much the taller.

Gary Cooper was listed as 6' 3"
