Mizell Movie of the Week ~ John Wayne Month
Sponsored by Desert Oasis Healthcare
Mizell Weekly Movies in May are featuring John Wayne in such classics as True Grit and The Green Berets. Movie of the Week is every Thursday at 10:00AM. The Movies are free ... and so is the popcorn!! Come on down and enjoy a movie...and have a delicious lunch afterwards. This is a great way to catch-up on some classic movies of a by-gone and simpler era.
* May 23rd: The Green Berets
Gung-ho Col. Mike Kirby (John Wayne) is leading his Green Berets on a mission to kidnap an enemy general during the Vietnam War. When a skeptical reporter accompanies them, the colonel and his team outline their reasons for participating in the war. Wayne codirected this action-packed, hawkish film, which was surprisingly successful at the box office. The macho cast includes David Janssen and Aldo Ray.
* May 30th: The Sons of Katie Elder
John Wayne stars as the eldest of four Elder brothers who reunite in Texas to bury their mother and investigate the death of their father. But a meddling sheriff and a rival gang have other plans for the Elder brothers, and soon the air is thick with lead. Director Henry Hathaway's gripping Western also stars Dean Martin, Michael Anderson Jr. and Earl Holliman, with Dennis Hopper as the villainous Dave Hastings.
