John Wayne - the Unquiet American

The series of historical biographies presents a profile of the actor John Wayne. His on-screen bravery and his battle with the cancer that eventually killed him contributed to a heroic public image. But Wayne shirked his country's call to arms in World War Two, endorsed the Hollywood blacklist, fervently supported the war in Vietnam, and criticised the civil rights movement.
