John Wayne


John Wayne (1907-79) was born Marion Morrison to parents with a sense of humour in Winterset, Iowa. He earned his nickname Duke from a pet dog, and went to university on a football scholarship.
He entered Hollywood as a prop man and after befriending director John Ford won a series of bit parts before becoming a major star in the 40s. He missed out on serving in WW2 due to an ear infection, but helped form the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, which took pleasure in outing commies.
