Westerns Channel's Duke Birthday Bash

For those who dig 'The Duke,' Starz Encore Group LLC's Westerns Channel is
the place to be May 26.

The network will celebrate the late John Wayne's birthday with a seven-film
marathon, highlighted by its first airing of True Grit, for which the
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,
The Shepherd of the Hills, Winds of the Wasteland and The
Comancheros
