That movie. Love that movie. What's not to love love? And you're and you're very fond of John. Wayne I understand. John Wayne's my favorite person who moves in the movies removed beautifully. He moved beautifully. Yeah I I love How slow he moves? That was always the thing that I just. I just like. He takes his time. The takes his time. Is this scene at Honda. Where he's talking to Geraldine page while he's making horseshoes? Oh yeah you know. He's firing up. Poor shoes offering awesome cool off and it's it's more than just a bit of business right. It's a it's a major bit of choreography right. He never stops talking ray. But he's he's it's movement this choreography. It's quicker famous put there's also Languid witness to him and he has the thing that I think movies can do which I don't know if he's handsome or not. It goes beyond on that. He's he has a Gra- There's gravity in a presence and a feeling and You know would say it's the thing that with movies were actors can become their own cinema themselves they can dictate the terms of it and in He had that I just. I think I'm also because I'm always interested in In in movement an and I think it's probably has to do with my background in dance. Just you know him anywhere in a movie.
