Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 347-377) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: A long, rough stagecoach to fame, powered by a Ford -- War, Hollywood, and Wayne in the forties -- Searching through the fifties -- From the ashes of The Alamo to the fires of Vietnam -- With True grit and an Oscar by his side into the sunset.
Summary, etc.: From the New York Times best-selling biographer of Jimmy Stewart and Clint Eastwood comes a major, in-depth look at one of the most enduring American film icons of all time.
An audience favorite and top box office draw for decades, John Wayne symbolized masculinity, power, and patriotism, and inspired millions of Americans. Yet despite his popularity and success, he was unfairly dismissed as a "B" movie actor lacking elegance, creativity, range, and depth. This book challenges conventional wisdom and reevaluates Wayne's life and vital cinematic legacy, ultimately placing the man known as "Duke" among a select and brilliant pantheon of "actor auteurs"--artists whose consistency of style in their work reflects their personal creative vision.--From publisher description.
Subject: Wayne, John, 1907-1979.
