The 24 Year Old John Wayne
23 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I think most of these early films that Wayne appeared in was akin to work experience in order to penetrate a profession. Although there may not be any real story in this film, there's a lot that you can learn about how to be a gentleman and treat women just by watching JW.
