The 20 Year Old John Wayne
2 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

All of these early silent films that John Wayne appeared in equipped him with the stamina and skills that he would apply in his later films. In this film, he trained as an American football player which put him in good stead as a coach in 'Trouble Along the Way' 24 years later.
