Duke Days of Summer {$100 Giveaway}

This post and giveaway is sponsored by INSP.

As many of you are fellow Baby Boomers, I thought you all might be interested in this giveaway! Did you grow up watching westerns on television? I sure did! My dad was a big fan of westerns and he gave me a love of westerns also, so this genre was a part of my childhood and I still love them to this days. Cowboys were the real He-men back then and John Wayne was one of the best!

Today I’ve got a different post for you, but a fun Summer giveaway and something you might be interested in too for these lazy summer days!

  1. “Angel and the Badman” and “The Cowboys” remain the top of my favorites of John Wayne’s films. I grew up watching them with my dad, as many of us did, and he especially enjoyed his westerns as the war films were hard on my dad, a decorated veteran of WWII.
    A funny aside based on an above comment regarding the cast of Gunsmoke; they stayed in the hotel my mom worked at when I was very young, and she was allowed to bring me in one morning to meet some of them. I’ll never forget meeting my idols James Arness, Amanda Blake, Ken Curtis, and Buck Taylor.

  2. McClintock is a definite favorite. John Wayne was someone I always admired him for his patriotism and strong personality.

  3. Rooster Cogburn:)

  4. True Grit…what a classic!

  5. So many to choose from – True Grit is always a classic.

  6. Brenda Haines says

    Hondo has always been my favorite. Thanks for the chance!

    It’s impossible for me to pick just one favorite Duke movie! Maybe True Grit or maybe Rooster Cogburn? I’ll definitely be watching them on Friday!

  8. True Grit. Loved his movies when I was growing up.

  9. True Grit was my favorite! But, there were so many other as well! Still love watching anything John Wayne is staring in!

  12. The old Westerns are always great to watch!- Love those cowboys! True Grit was a favorite.

  13. Linda Hickey says

    Mine would be, ” True Grit.” One of his first westerns. Oh how I still remember seeing it for the first time. My Daddy and Mother took all of us kids to see it at the Drive in Theatre. We watched it in the car, when it first came out to see. Both my parents loved him and his movies. So there likenesses was instilled in me as well. A great childhood memory. Thank you for sharing Rhonda.

    I have been a HUGE John Wayne fan since I was about 12 years old (I’m now 55). I have been collecting all kinds of JW memorabilia since my late teens and would love to win this so I can add some more items. I love so many of his films, but my favorite is She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. My email address is proof of that.
