About This Quiz

Marion Robert Morrison, the man who would become John Wayne, was born in 1907 in the town of Winterset, Iowa, but when his family had to move due to his father's breathing problems, they ended up in Southern California, where the tall future film star would ultimately make his name. After a failed stint at farming in the desert, they moved to Glendale, where Wayne would do odd jobs for his father and others, and where he got the family dog that would give him his nickname, Duke, just like Indiana Jones! As fate would have it, he went to the University of Southern California where he played football and caught the eye of famous western film star Tom Mix, who got him his first on-set job. Wayne became close with directing legend John Ford while working on his sets, and the die was cast.

John Wayne often played imposing authority figures; men of passion, principle, and action. Wayne himself did not serve in World War II, which may have prompted him to become quite the political hawk, supporting the Vietnam War, and making World War II movies long into his career. A mixed bag, he was a difficult man as he got older, and he drank a lot, but his greatest contributions stand out more than his flaws.
