The narrator intones here that 1878 was such a bad year . . .

. . . that John Wayne had to join Billy the Kid's gang of outlaws. While this may sound like Mel Brooks suiting up with the Gestapo to some, it actually makes perfect sense. In Real Life, John Chisum helped murder 36 American sheriffs and their deputies, as documented in CHISUM. (This stood as an all-time record for rubbing out U.S. Law Enforcement Personnel straight through Prohibition, the Black Panther heydays, and the Detroit Riots, until Mohammad Atta's gang of 19 hijackers finally broke it on Sept. 11, 2001.) In Real Life, "John Wayne" (or Marion Mortimer Morrison) destroyed the well being of more Innocent Americans (many of them War Heroes returning from World War Two) during his pogroms of the 1940s and 1950s than Atta's crew cut down, as documented in the film TRUMBO. This, of course, makes CHISUM and "Wayne" brothers from different mothers, though movie audiences of the 1970s may not have been perceptive enough to appreciate all the ironies of the situation. The narrator of JOHN WAYNE AND CHISUM makes it clear that "Il Duce" relished an opportunity to walk on the Dark Side for once on the Big Screen, since that's where he stomped and preyed for most of his Real Life.
