Viewers can tune in for chances to win prizes while watching. And John Wayne’s son, Ethan Wayne, even provides fun trivia about his father during commercial breaks. Tonight, the channel is airing the popular film, “Big Jake.” To promote the film, the channel shared a video clip with Ethan sharing some fun trivia about his father’s costume in the film.

“This is the costume from ‘Big Jake.’ That one is pretty significant to me because I got to play little jake in that film,” said Ethan. “Something that’s kind of unique about it, little story, is he typically wore a clean vest, no embellishments. In this film, he was estranged from his wife, Maureen O’Hara and he was living the single life across the border in Mexico. And when she calls him because she needs some help finding me because I get kidnapped in the film. He shows up and he’s got this vest on with embellishment on it. A little anecdote I thought was pretty cute at the time. Everybody got a kick out of it. Anyway, something that I remember. And something that I think about any time I see the vest. “

Along with the video, INSP wrote, “Looking good, Duke! Enjoy a bit of Big Jake trivia from Ethan Wayne, aka “Little Jake” himself. Watch Big Jake, tonight at 8PM ET.”
