With a sidearm, Duke's bidding was done
Many died, Ringo Kid always won
But when under the water
Wayne would blunder at slaughter
When not fried, giant squid are no fun.
John Wayne wrestles with a giant squid in Reap the Wild Wind (Cecil B. DeMille; 1942). Wayne played the Ringo Kid in Stagecoach (John Ford; 1939), the film which lifted the actor out of B westerns.
