John Wayne was America. And America ...in fact, the entire world... has not forgotten John Wayne. Thirty years after his death, the man known as 'Duke' still ranks among the Top Three most popular American film stars of all time. More than any other actor, he chose roles that glorified traditional American values and would not compromise his personal image. 'Don't apologize,' he said in 'She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,' 'it's a sign of weakness.' That was John Wayne, and that's the John Wayne celebrated here in the music and poster art from his many memorable western movies.
