Interesting Facts About John Wayne stated on the box

Did You Know?

John Wayne holds the record for the most leading roles by an actor, at more than 140.

John Wayne was born Marion Robert Morrison in Winterset, IA, in 1907. As a boy in Glendale, California, Marion had a dog named Duke. Over time, the local firefighters started calling him Duke, too. His academic and athletic success at Glendale High led to a football scholarship at the University of Southern California (USA). However, a body surfing accident at Newport Beach cut short his promising athletic career, so he looked to studio work to help pay his tuition. In an early film called The Big Trail, Marion Morrison became John Wayne, and the movie business was never the same.

John Wayne’s monumental film career spanned five decades. He appeared in more than 175 films, more than a dozen directed by John Ford alone. For an entire generation, he was Hollywood’s biggest and most durable box-office star. Incredibly versatile, John Wayne starred in just about every genre Hollywood offered: war movies, romantic comedies, police dramas, and histories.

But it was the Western in the American cinema where John Wayne made his most lasting mark. He was nominated three times for the Academy Award, winning an Oscar for Best Actor in 1970 for True Grit. And his powerful performances in The Searchers has been singles out by filmmakers and actors alike as the greatest performance by an actor ever on film.

In 1979, John Wayne was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. A year later, President Jimmy Carter awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor. John Wayne is among only a handful of individuals who have received both the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.

The John Wayne legend lives on to this day. John Wayne still spears in the Harris Poll’s annual listings of America’s favorite movie start, ranking third in the 2010 poll. He has the distinction of being the only actor on this list every year since 1994.
