John Wayne and Ron Howard

In a strange way, “The Shootist” marks the passing of
a torch. During production young Ron Howard would talk
to John Wayne about the future of the motion picture business
and his interest in directing. The Duke encouraged the child actor to
pursue this interest.

In the last twenty years,
Ron Howard holds a consistent track record of
successful movies,
from “Splash” to the academy award winning “A Beautiful Mind.”

Given the controversy of the soon to
be released “The DaVinci Code,”
my money is on Ron Howard to create a thought provoking and
entertaining film experience that was built on the
solid values of his past accomplishments.
