Dear Mr. Priddle,

I have a metal ear horn/trumpet that was used in one of John Wayne's movies and I believe it might be a movie made before 1960.

I am attaching pix here and hope you can help me by letting me know which movie it was used in.

Thank you in advance for you kind and generous offer to be of assistance.  What a blessing it is to have an expert like you available to help out.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello Yona,

I must be honest and say that I couldn't personally recall seeing an ear trumpet in any of John Wayne's films. But, having checked with a couple of fellow Wayne fans, I have been informed that an ear trumpet did make an appearance in the 1952 film, "The Quiet Man".

Wayne, John

Movies have always been my great love and John Wayne films in particular gave me more pleasure than most. I have studied his body of work for years and would be more than happy to answer any questions relating anything he appeared in, directed or produced.
