The legendary movie star John Wayne may have passed away many years ago, but his memory is living on thanks to his numerous films.
Also, the official Instagram dedicated to the actor account is doing its part to keep his memory alive. And, part of that effort is sharing photos of the man known as “Duke” with social media users. One of the most recent photos shared on the Duke’s official Instagram account included one of his many film costars. The photo was shared on Wednesday (April 28).
That costar is Constance Towers. And, Duke and Towers worked together on the film “The Horse Soldiers.” According to the Instagram post, the film had its debut in 1959. And, IMDb.com reported that the plot of the film was as follows: “In 1863, a Union outfit is sent behind Confederate lines in Mississippi to destroy enemy railroads but a captive southern belle and the unit’s doctor cause frictions within ranks.”
In addition to sharing the photo of John Wayne and his costar, the Instagram account also invited fans to answer a trivia question. That question was: “Do you know Duke’s character’s name in this film?”
Well, do you? If so, head over to the official Instagram account for John Wayne and share your answer.
