John Wayne Treasures: Includes A Collection Of Memorabilia Reproductions From The Life Of The Duke


John Wayne Treasures chronicles the life of this legendary actor, from his earliest movies and years out in the wilderness to his final films and eventual passing. Four pieces of memorabilia included in the book's pocket add vivid detail to this story of John Wayne's life."Damn, I'm the stuff men are made of!" --John Wayne While people around the globe adore and cherish John Wayne, he remains the quintessential American icon. He embodied the definition of the American cowboy, soldier, and rugged individualist. Duke's extraordinary rise to fame--from hauling furniture around studio lots to becoming one of the most famous actors in the world--is chronicled in this handsome volume, complete with on-set and behind-the-scenes photographs, vintage movie posters, and cigarette cards from his most well-known movies. Clips of interviews, quotes from movies, and the testimony of the people he surrounded himself with tell the story of America's favorite western star.John Wayne Treasures contains a pocket in the back with four pieces of memorabilia spanning John Wayne's life and career. Included are a small movie poster for Stagecoach, excerpts from Duke's Glendale High School senior yearbook circa 1925, and proof sheets from Big Jake and The Shootist. Since John Wayne's death in 1979, he has been the subject of the public's fascination and has become a folk legend, of sorts. John Wayne's character, with biting wit and grit, has grown far bigger than the man himself. While alive, he embodied the persona he created with pride, patriotism, determination, and integrity. Written by true and loyal fans, every aspect of the Duke's life is covered in this book.
