John Wayne - The Cowboy
Super Star & Best Actor Winner

John Wayne was an extremely popular star, with an astonishingly long and successful screen career. Known mostly as a Western star, John Wayne had an image as a hard punching, straight shooting cowboy, who sat high in the saddle. It is possible he eventually confused his screen image with his real self, though the difference between the two may always have been negligible.

John Wayne's defining role was as a one-eyed sheriff in TRUE GRIT for which he received the Best Actor Oscar.

Notable pictures include THE QUIET MAN, THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER, THE LONGEST DAY, and RIO BRAVO. John Wayne's last film, THE SHOOTIST, was, surprisingly, one of his best.
