“The larger-than-life American icon known around the world as "The Duke" is the subject of an interactive exhibit, "John Wayne: Spirit of the West," from Dec. 5 to 14 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Guests can learn more about the movie star through never-before-seen memorabilia, iconic film props and other elements that capture the spirit of the West. Wayne, who lived from 1907 to 1979, was among the top box office draws for three decades....”

Thanks for the tip. We live in Vegas, so I plan to see this exhibit on Thursday. I've always been a John Wayne fan, so this should be fun to experience.

Best regards.

There are a LOT of Rodeo events taking place there all week.

I watched part of the Miss Rodeo America Pageant :cool:, &, went through the exhibit area while they were setting up ~150 exhibits that I believe opens tomorrow (12/5).

Can probably get some cool, authentic cowboy boots there. :thumbup:

That’s very cool. I love this time of year when the cowboys come to town for NFR, and the Southpoint is our favorite place.

It’s at the far south end on Las Vegas Blvd. The back of the property borders the I-15 freeway. The cross street at I-15 is Silverado Ranch. It also is next door to the Grandview timeshare.

I stopped by yesterday. It is in a separate section in the exhibit hall (upstairs/escalator). It isn't real big, but I enjoyed seeing the items they had on display. Outfits from several movies, a lot of pictures and short write-ups about them, the holster that he had specially made, and more. Definitely worth a visit for a fan.

Best regards.

Mike
