Remember when TBS started doing these prime-time marathons in the late 1980s? “10 Days of The Duke” celebrating John Wayne, “16 Days of 007” whenever a new James Bond movie came out, “8 Great Hours of Andy” over Thanksgiving. My family and I looked forward to these marathons–even if we couldn’t always get the best reception on our ancient television sets! These eventually led to the postmodern invention of cable networks adopting a single film to show for 24 hours straight on Christmas Day (another Turner invention).
This is a collection of TV spots and bumpers for the John Wayne marathon that debuted in the fall of 1992.
