John Wayne … Iconic Images Part 1

28 Feb

No denying that John Wayne was one of the most charismatic and photogenic Movie Stars who ever lived. I really do wonder if he wasn’t the MOST charismatic movie Star of all time? There’s a case to be made here if you look at the massive number of Wayne images on the net. Much more than I could ever post here.

Here’s a few gems – without even looking too hard – and I include some interesting cartoons, caricatures, and Wayne portraits.

As you may notice, not every artist seems to be a John Wayne fan. But I guess when you’re a Living Legend – plus his persona, politics, etc. that comes with the territory. I’m sure John himself probably had a good chuckle at some of the images. His shoulders were big enough to handle it.

        Seems we remember the Duke as the older tough guy more than his younger days..??

        Not sure I would have guessed at the stature he achieved by his early work. Some say that John Ford was responsible for making him into a Star. But you can’t create charisma – you either got it or not.
