The 19 Year Old John Wayne
2 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

John Wayne made his screen debut in this Rafael Sabatini adaptation titled 'Bardelys the Magnificent'. Sabatini was one of many novelists who was used to bring historical dramas to the big screen mobilising the careers of Errol Flynn and Stewart Granger.
