The above mention of John Wayne reminded me of one of my favorite Wayne movies, Hondo. Evidently it was from an early story by Louis L'Amour. He helped with the screenplay and then went on to write the book, Hondo, which fellows the movie almost exactly and contains all that great Wayne dialogue.

“You baked this morning.” His voice was matter of fact. “I can smell fresh bread on you. Sometime today you cooked salt pork. I can smell that on you. And I can smell soap all over you. You took a bath. On top of that, you smell all over like a woman. A woman’s got a different smell from a man. Not salty and sharp, but kinda soft and rich and warm. I could find you in the dark, Mrs. Lowe, and I’m only part Indian.”

There was a poll taken some 20 yrs after John Wayne died to see who the most popular movie star was. Mr. Wayne won hands down.

Well...the actor who played Odd, Anton Yelchin, died, as someone else posted. He was pretty damn perfect, for the movie role, and the studio(s) probably rightly think that it would be difficult to cast a replacement. It's a shame, I really liked that movie (for a change).
