"I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them." The John Wayne ethic was laid out in 170 films and so for many fans, the long-lived actor (1907-1979) and the characters he played in played in movies remain almost interchangeable. Thus, a penetrating biography about the man behind the icon holds particular fascination. Film historian Scott Eyman (Lion of Hollywood; Empire of Dreams) labored on this life for decade, conducting interviews with Wayne before his death and over a hundred others with the Duke's family, co-stars, and close associates. Certain to be regarded as the definitive biography of a legend.
