How about a fourth option where my Dad has been dead for nearly a decade and I can't accurately vote on this?

I Love them both. I never asked my dad if he even likes John Wayne. I'll have to ask him if he saw the Coen Bros. version.

My Dad loved the John Wayne version. Unfortunately he never got to see the new one, but I'm almost positive he would have dug it too. I prefer the Coen Bros version. Great contest, thanks!

My Dad(RIP) loved John Wayne so I would go with that, but i'm sure he would love both also if he got a chance to see it.
