Churchill and The Duke

Today, I had to go into Gallup to do some grocery shopping and pick up a few other things at Walmart.

While there, I bought a Blu-ray of Darkest Hour with Gary Oldman as Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a DVD of John Wayne: 10 Movie Collection (5 discs).

I am looking forward to watching Darkest Hour tonight to see Oldman's Academy Award-winning portrayal of Churchill.

But I am also looking forward to seeing The Duke in what was probably the biggest example of miscasting ever. Wayne was (mis)cast as Genghis Khan in The Conqueror.

I can't wait to hear his speech as Khan when he says:
Men! Tonight we ride! We're gonna plunder the villages, steal the sheep and rape the women! 
And I want ya to get it right this time!
