RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

John Wayne, one of the cinema's greatest stars, is also one of the cinema's greatest problems. His image as an icon of American individualism and the frontier spirit has overshadowed his career to such an extent that it is almost impossible for viewers and writers to separate Wayne the legend from Wayne the actor and Wayne the man.

Director Raoul Walsh came up with part of John Wayne's stage name. "Mad Anthony" Wayne was a Revolutionary War general who served with George Washington at Valley Forge and defeated the Indians at Fallen Timbers. Mr. Walsh liked this character and suggested it for the actor's stage name. The studio changed the first name to John.
