JOHN WAYNE - IN THE MOVIES DVD: John Wayne - In The Movies pays tribute to the screen icon who came to personify everything a man should be: tough, loyal, sensitive, and a straight shooter. On this one-of-a-kind retrospective DVD you ll see some of the best moments from his extraordinary career. This DVD documentary by film-maker Timothy Knight contains more than 50 of the Duke s most entertaining scenes from his best movies. The clips on the DVD documentary are scenes from the following movies: The Alamo, The Quiet Man, The Searchers, Fort Apache, Red River, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, The Green Berets, Rio Bravo, The Shootist, The Horse Soldiers, Rio Grande, Stagecoach, Sands of Iwo Jima, True Grit, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. (50 MINS) LITTLE BOOK OF JOHN WAYNE - IN THE MOVIES: John Wayne reportedly loathed horses. Nor did he ever serve one day in the army. Yet the Iowa pharmacist s son born Marion Michael Morrison came to embody two of the most enduring archetypes in American popular culture: the cowboy and the gung-ho war hero. Even today, more than 30 years after his death from cancer, Wayne still casts a towering shadow, not just in film, but in American life and politics. He is often invoked as a symbol of patriotic might and conservative values - a powerful reminder of an earlier, supposedly better time in American history, whe dedication to God and country prevailed. John Wayne - In The Movies examines Wayne s career from Stagecoach to his last film, The Shootist (1976). Encompassing 50 films from this 37-year period, it highlights the Duke s most revered films, from his Cavalry Trilogy with Ford to his classic collaborations with Howard Hawks and Henry Hathaway. Admittedly, some of the films are dated, racist, jingoistic and chauvinistic by contemporary standards. And a few would be downright forgettable - if not for the presence of Wayne, an American icon whose larger-than-life image is burned permanently into memory.
