Synopsis by Mark Deming
Few, if any, actors have achieved the iconic status of John Wayne, who, during the course of a career that spanned six decades, rose from a cowpoke in B-westerns to one of Hollywood's biggest stars and a powerful symbol of American strength and tenacity around the world. John Wayne: American Legend is a documentary which, though interviews and rare film clips, traces the remarkable story of "The Duke." Interview subjects include Charlton Heston, Ron Howard, and Red Buttons.
