The 30 Year Old John Wayne
19 August 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made his screen debut at the age of 19, John Wayne's career was developed by acting in screen adaptations of western novels to embody the prototype cowboy and all-American man. This film was interesting to watch, not because it was an interesting film, but because John Wayne was in it.
