Dirty John Wayne

Today I found out that Dirty Harry, a movie about a Gestapo officer reincarnated in the body of a Los Angeles Detective in the early 70's, was originally written with John Wayne in mind for the lead role. For those who don't know, John Wayne was a science fiction actor well known for starring in Westerns set in an alternate universe where black people don't exist.

Anyway, it occured to me that if John Wayne had been the star the Dirty Harry movies might have had quite a different feel to them:

Now that I think about it, 'Fill your hands!' is probably something you never want to hear from someone with the nickname, 'Dirty.'

Now that I think about it even more it's probably not something you'd want to hear from someone called 'Rooster Cockburn' either.
