    Would you consider the audio edition of Stagecoach to be better than the print version?

    Not really, but both are special in their own right. The Duke is the Duke no matter where or when you encounter him. Well worth the listen and I have listened to it a number of times.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stagecoach?

    The scene during the birth of the baby is great. Ward Bond pulls off the Doctor's role only as he could do it. Wonderful job! At the end after the gun fight is John Wayne as we should always remember him!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a western classic performed by the best actors money could buy at the time. John Wayne had just won an award for all time favorite actor and he certainly deserved it in my opinion and showed why in his performance!

    Would you consider the audio edition of She Wore a Yellow Ribbon to be better than the print version?

    The print version vs. the audio version is like comparing apples and oranges! Both have certain advantages. I will say that if you are a fan of John Wayne and John Ford does it realy matter!? John Wayne is John Wayne no matter how or where you encounter his expertise as a performer. At times he comes off a bit stiff on the audio version but when I thought about it he comes off a bit stiff in his print roles. I have enjoyed ALL of his performances going way back to the 1930's and some of his "one reelers" that he did with Yakima Knute and some of the old timers all the way up through his last films! Awesome actor awesome work. . . what else can you say.


    Any additional comments?

    A+ for any John Wayne fans! Well worth the time.

Merril's greatest hits:
  • A Christmas Carol [Radio Spirits Version] (Dramatized)

    "Disappointing"

    Overall

    The absolutely dreadful sound quality and the narrator's sleepy drawl and lack of energy totally ruined this wonderful classic story for me. One of only two downloads that I have deleted. Very disappointing.
