It looks like John Wayne’s family is pleased with the move of the John Wayne Film Festival from West Texas to Dallas. Three of the Duke’s children and one of his grandchildren have already indicated that they are coming to town for next week’s festival kickoff event.
Siblings Melinda Wayne Munoz, Ethan Wayne and Marissa Wayne and Wayne granddaughter Anita Swift will be at the Feb. 19 launch party at LOOK Cinemas where Wayne’s final film, The Shootist, will be screened.
