John Wayne is synonymous with Western films. He starred in 143 movies and out of those, 83 of them are Westerns. That’s more movies than the most prominent actors today have appeared in. The author Ronald Davis wrote it best in his book Duke: The Life and Image of John Wayne: “John Wayne personified for millions the nation’s frontier heritage…he played cowboys, cavalrymen, and unconquerable loners.”
