The 22 Year Old John Wayne
23 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There was definitely something to be said about the young John Wayne. Whatever you may think about 19th century American history, he embodies the recreation (and reinvention) of the American west on screen. No matter how far removed the myth is from reality, he made entertaining viewing in almost all of his films.
