When you think of Western movies, the first name that likely comes to mind is John Wayne's. Of the 142 films he starred in, 83 of them were Westerns.
Author Ronald Davis said 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."
Of course, while Wayne was know for his Westerns, he starred in movies with other themes as well. Dramas seemed to dominate that side of Wayne's career, with most being crime or military themed.
To sum it up, Wayne's immense filmography led to an equally immense impact on the movie industry. Today, he remains a respected figure in American film history, and his movies have been passed down through generations.
