Remembering a Hollywood Legend
During Oscar Season
“Oscar and I have something in common.
Oscar first came to the Hollywood scene in 1928.
So did I.
We’re both a little weather beaten,
but we’re still here and plan to be around for a whole lot longer.”
— John Wayne, when presenting the 1979 Best Picture Oscar,
shortly before his death that same year
