The basement of Jack Clark's Davenport home is like a shrine. Pictures, plates, a standup, and commemorative rifle are a few of the many, many items Jack has on display. His hero is The Duke, John Wayne.  

Jack loves cowboy movies, and especially anything John Wayne. He has an extensive collection of Wayne videos, and has watched many of them over and over. His favorite is Red River.

Wayne starrred in more than 200 movies during a career which spanned more than fifty years. He was born in Winterset, Iowa. His real name was Marion Morrison.

Every room in the Clark house has at least one picture of the Hollywood Icon. There is also a photo of Wayne on the ceiling.

Jack says that John Wayne was a man's man, claiming Wayne was boisterous, loud, and friendly. 

Clark's collection would not be complete without John Wayne Pajamas and Toilet Paper. Oh yeah, Clark has those as well!
