CELEBRITY John Wayne

Mention John Wayne and some of Hollywood's most celebrated Westerns gallop into mind. Over a career that spanned half a century, the "Duke" appeared in more than 140 movies, many of them set in the Wild West and considered classics of the genre. Off camera, Wayne cut a sometimes controversial figure, and frequently espoused social and political views in public that today would be deemed unacceptable.

Wayne died 40 years ago this year, but his work still influences actors and filmmakers. Click through the gallery for an appreciation of one of cinema's legendary action heroes.
