Editorial Reviews

He transcended conventional stardom to earn a place as a true American icon. His 250 films shaped a vision of American manhood. Twenty years after his death, John Wayne remains one of the most influential actors in history. The rugged, straight-shooting characters he portrayed have become a symbol of the American spirit. Born Marion Michael Morrison in Iowa, he was introduced to Hollywood as an undergraduate at USC, where he worked as a set laborer on the Fox lot. Soon he was on camera, appearing in numerous films before landing his breakthrough role in the 1939 John Ford classic, Stagecoach. JOHN WAYNE chronicles the life and career of this Hollywood giant through generous clips and intimate interviews with friends, family and colleagues, including Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Charlton Heston. Discover how he was more than 200 movies into his career before he finally won an Oscar and see excerpts from his poignant final role in The Shootist when, after more than a decade battling the disease, he portrayed an old gunfighter dying from cancer. From the studio lot to leading man, celluloid hero to American legend, this is the moving story of "The Duke."

This is a great 90minute bio on john wayne...with many nice details of his life presented by fellow actors and friends. A particular highlight for me is the actual footage of his arrival at and subsequent win at the OSCARS for his movie True Grit (I never get tired of his heartfelt speech!).
If you have John Wayne American Legend by IMAGE/20thCenturyFox which is called THE OFFICIAL STUDIO BIOGRAPHY..then you already own this. The previously released edition has a nice bonus however in featurettes narrated by Robert Culp about his 4 Movies for FOX..so its actually preferred to this newer release which is more expensive to boot.
