the place to be May 26.

The network will celebrate the late John Wayne's birthday with a seven-film

actor won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of U.S. Marshal
'Rooster' Cogburn.

Westerns' Wayne marathon begins at 1:05 p.m. with West of the Divide
and also features such Duke fare as Dakota, In Old California,
