Storyline

Never-before-seen home movies and candid photographs taken aboard John Wayne's yacht the Wild Goose intimately portray the actor's last years on the converted 136 foot Navy minesweeper. Wayne found the boat to be the perfect playground for his 6'4" frame. Interviews with three of the ship's seven former captains fill in background with personal anecdotes about the superstar's relationship with crew. friends, and family from 1963 until the Duke sold it in 1979 just prior to his death.
