A Tribute to John Wayne
Description:

Marion Robert Morrison (May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979), known professionally as John Wayne and nicknamed Duke, was an American actor, director, producer, and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient.
He was among the top box office draws for three decades, famous for his roles in Western films.

Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa, but grew up in Southern California. He lost a football scholarship to the University of Southern California as a result of a bodysurfing accident, and began working for the Fox Film Corporation. He appeared mostly in small parts, but his first leading role came in Raoul Walsh’s Western The Big Trail (1930), an early widescreen film epic which was a box-office failure. Leading roles followed in numerous B movies during the 1930s, most of them also Westerns, without becoming a major name. It was John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) that made Wayne a mainstream star, and he starred in 142 motion pictures altogether. According to one biographer, “John Wayne personified for millions the nation’s frontier heritage.”
It was Wayne’s role as a cantankerous one-eyed marshal in True Grit (1969), for which he received the Academy Award for Best Actor.
In his final screen performance, he starred as an aging gunfighter battling cancer in The Shootist (1976).
He appeared with many important Hollywood stars of his era, and made his last public appearance at the Academy Awards ceremony on April 9, 1979 before succumbing to stomach cancer later that year.
