John Wayne’s Public Image vs Reality
John Wayne (1907 – 1979) made a killing off his public image of rugged toughness,
and on-screen portrayals of virile and gung ho tough guys. “Duke”, as he was known to millions of admirers,
cornered the market for a while on depictions
of the quintessential American fighting
man. Such roles got him two Oscar nominations for Best Actor, including one for playing a tough US Marine
sergeant in The Sands of Iwo Jima (1949).
