Without a doubt, John Wayne was one of the toughest cowboys portrayed on the silver screen. John Wayne was a special man who put everything he had into his work. He appeared in several films, but one role remains a topic of hot discussion even today.
In the movie “Rio Bravo” Dean Martin appears with Wayne who is playing the sheriff. In the clip below, you’ll watch the iconic moment both men share – through song.
Accompanied by Ricky Nelson on guitar, Wayne listens to Martin sing old cowboy songs late at night in the jailhouse.
While this isn’t a moment you’d expect John Wayne to have, it is a poignant one. Plus, it is impossible to forget once you’ve seen it.
In the clip, you will watch Nelson playing the guitar while an older gentleman plays along n the harmonica.
When Dean Martin breaks out into song, every viewer can’t help, but smile.
Apparently without a care in the world, while everyone else in the town is probably sleeping, these men enjoy the music and all sing together – even John Wayne.
Watch the incredible moment below.
