Do You Know What John Wayne Did 60 Years Ago? (Video)

Everybody knows John Wayne was one of the toughest cowboys to ever act on the silver screen. Wayne was a legendary actor who put everything he had into his work. He appeared in dozens of famous movies in his career, but one role remains hotly discussed among movies buffs still today.

In “Rio Bravo,” Dean Martin appears with Wayne who plays the sheriff. In the video clip, you can see the famous scene where rat pack crooner Martin and Wayne sing together.

With the inimitable Ricky Nelson on guitar, the sheriff (Wayne) listens to Martin sing classic cowboy songs in the jailhouse.

Somehow the fact that you don’t expect the tough John Wayne to have these kind of sensitive moments makes the whole scene especially poignant and impossible to forget.

The jailhouse singing scene includes Nelson playing the guitar while an older man offers accompaniment on the harmonica.

Of course, the men are smoking and drinking coffee and singing late at night while everyone else in town is likely sleeping. There is something truly special about the camaraderie these men share as they enjoy the music and all sing together, even tough guy John Wayne.
