John Wayne
One of the great movie stars. Not a terrific actor - when you watch one of his movies, you're seeing John Wayne play John Wayne, and John Wayne was a single-note character. But a great star who could …

A western movie
A great film because Wayne's character is not his usual squeaky clean cowboy. He is a more developed true to life man most interested in his own self-interest.

This Marine Corp film is a "must-watch," if you like war movies.

John Wayne didn't receive many honors for the movies he made.  That's probably because his greatest role was playing himself.  He invented the name, the walk, the drawl that nearly the entire …
