Born: Marion Robert Morrison on May 26, 1907
Place of Birth: Winterset, Iowa
Died: July 11, 1979
Place of Death: Los Angeles, California


In 1930, Marion Morrison took the stage name "John Wayne" at the suggestion of Raoul Walsh to star in Walsh's epic Western The Big Trail. At this time, Wayne's weekly salary was raised to $105. While this film would raise Wayne's standing in the film industry, providing him with a prolific amount of work (about eighty A-pictures by his own estimation), it wasn't until 1939 when Wayne was propelled to stardom by John Ford's classic Stagecoach. Wayne would go on to make 142 movies, primarily Westerns, receiving the Oscar in 1969 for his role as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit.

Favorite Films: True Grit, El Dorado, Dark Command, The Fighting Kentuckian, The Shootist

I tried to restrict the list of favorite films of Wayne to a handful, but really, there are so many I loved growing up, it's quite hard to narrow down. The Duke played a very large role in my life growing up. My father was a huge fan of him, and I fondly recall so many nights and early morning we spent into the wee hours watching his films. And one thing I can certainly say about Wayne is he had integrity and loyalty as so few actors today seem to have. Whatever else you can say about him, I have huge respect for him.

RETIRED: This list has been retired. Please see my list: Favorite Actors and Actresses: Today and Yesteryear.

NOTE: I will be retiring this list eventually. I will be recreating it in a custom list that I can actually publish. For some reason, when you add actors or actresses to a Favorites list that Listal generates, it's hard-coded to be semi-public permanently. Thank you for those who have voted on this list. Please watch for my new one when it's ready.
