    Okay, it looks like TCM finally has the broadcasting rights issue straigthen out and are going to show this film. This western has rarely been shown on television over the years. It is one of my favorite John Wayne films as well as an underated film by many due to it being out of the public's eye for so many years. Man, I hope this means that a dvd release will happen sometime in 2003. Hopefully, Michael Wayne and Warner have come to some kind of financial understanding about this film as well as another of my favorites that has never been released on video "The High and the Mighty". I've only seen that film twice which was many years ago on television.

    "Hondo" on TCM, November 2nd @ 8:00 p.m. ET

    Wow, I've never seen this movie at all, only the occasional "Married... with children" reference etc

    This news alone might make it worth getting TCM back in case the european channel will show it as well.

    Will it be the 3D version? (hopes against hope)

    I doubt it. I used to have a copy of the 3D version when it was shown on television. Very cool movie. Maybe not up to the standards of the Wayne/Ford collaborations, but still quite good.

    John Wayne fans should note that Hondo will be part of a John Wayne 24-hour marathon that starts at 6:00am tomorrow.

    This is part of TCM's western theme for November.

    Brian, I should still have the 3D version from TV on VHS somewhere unless my wife decided to use it for a blank tape. (Yes, I know, VHS, but it's better than nothing.)
