Pilar Wayne was John Wayne's third wife and legal widow (they were separated at the time of his death in 1979). Her biography of her husband for 25 years traces Wayne's first marriage to the saintly Josephine, second marrige to spitfire Chata, three-year affair with Marlene Dietrich, and his fight against cancer; and gives colorful gossip about Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, and Geraldine Page. Co-author Thorleifson keeps Wayne's film career firmly in perspective, and Pilar is more edifying than exploitive, as one might have suspected at first. This is a good antidote to the so-far uninteresting literature on one of the screen's legends. Christopher Schemering, formerly with Arlington Cty. P.L., Va.

This is not a salacious tell-all but it is nevertheless very interesting. They were together for almost 30 years and separated for several years before he died. I found it ultimately very sad, especially one scene in a restaurant when the two of them should have been allowed to talk privately but were interrupted by fans seeking autographs in what sounded like an unending line. I will definitely read this again.
