Slight correction. In my previous post on Down By the Glenside, the name of the film and the singers is correct, but in the scene I described they were singing "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" to John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara (whose character in Rio Grande was named Kathleen). Down By the Glenside was sung later in the movie to those two and a group of officers and was sung in honor of Gen. Sheridan (J. Carroll Naish). And Victor McLagan didn't brush away a tear... he first wiped his nose with a finger and then blew his nose into a bandana. My apologies for mixing up the two scenes. Moral of the story: Never put complete trust in the memory functions of a (nearly) 75 year old brain.
