      Marian Michael Morrison a.k.a. John Wayne made over 200 plus movies in his lifetime. He was the initial star picked to play Marshall Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke but instead recommend his friend James Arnes, to play the role. The Duke was the king of westerns and the 4 films he did with Maureen O' Hara are definitely Pure Classics. There are not enough words to describe the man except to say he is Americana heart and soul.

      John Wayne was America's All American inside and out. He exemplifies all that this country is about and did his best to make that understood in his movies. He was one of a kind that we will not likely ever see again. Long live his legacy to this nation.

      Like every Man there is good and bad in us. John Wayne showed those who watched his movies how to be better men.

      You should definitely post the quote from "The Alamo" about what a "Republic" meant to him. I think you will also find he made the same quote in "They Were Expendable".

      John Wayne also did a recording called "America Why I Love Her" that speaks volumes still today.

      To me there is no better actor or hero than John Wayne as any other actor made more movies than John Wayne?

      Hi Andy,

      I bookmarked this hub. My husband is an avid fan of John Wayne and collects his old movies. Your comprehensive listing will help me see which ones he's missing.

      I liked the quote from the movie, "The Shootist."

      Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Andy... I have seen Stage Coach-it is exceptional. This sentiment of likeness of roles must come from the strong characters he plays. He is a vocie of authority and an icon of 'real' American values. This is most inspiring to watch. I am definitley a fan.

      Whilst many say that John Wayne only ever played one character that of himself he was a surpringly talented actor, you just have to watch Stagecoach to understand how good he could be. Plus many don't realise that he made around 80 movies before he actually made it big and then just as many after.
