One great voice, one good voice + Walter Brennan & John Wayne

This photo of me 'with' John Wayne in Sedona, Arizona, a few years ago, got me thinking about one of my favorite John Wayne movies. One of his co-stars one of my all-time favorites, the wonderfully smooth-voiced Dean Martin. I always wanted someone to call me sweetheart darlin' in that tone of voice, but nobody ever did!

Here we have Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson in the 1959 John Wayne movie Rio Bravo, singing My Rifle, My Pony, and Me, accompanied by te oldest cowboy of them all, Walter Brennan.

Who wouldn't want smooth talking from a voice like that eh? I love Dean Martin.
& what a novel idea for a meme!

My favorite John Wayne movie is The Quiet Man...

Sorry I haven't been around much - have been a bit sporadic on the blogging front, but I've been popping in here and there to see your lovely photos!

Hoping you are well and have a lovely Christmas!

Kay that is a great clip, I love Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson's voices. Looks like you and I were of the same mind with cowboys this week.

Have a great weekend,

I wasn't around yesterday, on the computer, so I'm late in visiting.

You always come up with great songs and wonderful photos.

Oi, Kay!
Que boas recordações me trazes! Na adolescência adorava ver os filmes de John Wayne... Ao assistir ao clip, fiquei suspirando, relembrando cenas encantadoras.

That WAS a voice wasn't it? I also loved Walter Brennan. No idea why!
