We came across this vintage photo of John Wayne, the super hero/cowboy star of so many westerns. When his studio attempted to dress him in bright colors to promote the film “The Big Trail” he responded by saying…


“Don’t make me do this…

You don’t put a red dress on

an elephant.”

-John Wayne , lamenting the costume (green shirt, yellow boots) that the studio insisted he wear to promote the film.

He is right, I could not find one image of an elephant in a red dress.
