Radio Newsreel - John Wayne

In this short interview with perhaps the greatest cowboy of them all, a slightly weary sounding John Wayne speaks eloquently about the Western genre and how trends in film-making are determined more by individual box-office successes than the popularity of particular types of movie.

John Wayne is pictured in costume from the 1948 film '3 Godfathers', directed by John Ford.

Recorded 24 January 1964.
