Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is THE best John Wayne photo book ever!”
-True West
 
“As with many screen legends from that era, there was an aura about John Wayne that both enhanced and transcended the roles he played…That indefinable quality radiates throughout this remarkable collection of photographs.”
-Cowboys & Indians

I must have paged through this book over a half a dozen times already and still keep going back to go through it again and again. The family has done their father proud to publish photos from his childhood all through his film career including candid shots with his family, friends and fellow actors/actresses. Photographs from all around the globe this book will be in the hearts and minds of Duke's fans for years to come. Every John Wayne fan should have at least one copy of this book. I bought two just because I knew I would eventually wear the first one out reading through it and showing it to other fans. Well worth the money and then some. Thanks go out to his children for sharing photos from the family archive. Happy Holidays!

Could not put this book down until I read it cover to cover. Candid insight into the life and pastimes of one of our nation's all time heros, presented by his own family in his loving memory. Well worth the price. A real keeper for your family bookshelf for generations to come.

This is a great coffee table book and delivers great insight to the personal side of the legend that is John Wayne. I liked it so much I am buying more as gifts for my friends and co-workers who are fans.

Format: Hardcover
Coffee table size book containing photos of John Wayne's life and career and released by the John Wayne estate. The book is well done with many never before seen photos although I wonder why, after childhood, there were never any photos of Wayne with his brother. There is one incident that I have read so much about in the John Wayne books and it had to be photographed but yet that photograph is not in this collection. After Wayne won his Oscar for True Grit, when he returned to the location where he was filming, everyone, including the horses, had eye patches on. I sure would have liked to have seen that photo. There is an error in the caption on page 198-199 in the photo from The Sons of Katie Elder as the names for Michael Anderson Jr. and Earl Holliman are mismatched as Holliman is pictured on the far right. There are tribute articles from Maureen O'Hara, Ronald Reagan, and Ron Howard, as well as a brief biographical introduction by Patricia Bosworth and a forward by Martin Scorsese. A must for any fan of the Duke!

Seems like a lot of books related to John Wayne out recently, and more to come. In part because of continued fan interest, and I suspect, in part becuase somebody thinks it's time to release before this icon fades from the collective memory. Regardless of motivation, this is one fine volume and should appeal to anyone who was a fan of the big guy and I must confess to being amoung that crowd. Great pictures organized on a coherent fashion. A nice visual history of an actor the caught the imagination of several generations of the movie going public. No, there are none out there that can match the power of the Duke. He came along in a time when there were limited avenues of entertainment and he filled one of them, movies, to the brim. Long live the Duke.
