Overview

Perhaps best known for his classic movie lines, such as "Fill your hands, you sons-of-bitches!" from True Grit, the late actor John Wayne often displayed a spontaneous and biting wit when away from the screen as well. When a reporter from the Harvard Crimson sarcastically asked Wayne if he looked at himself as an "American Legend," for example, the Duke replied: "Well, not being a Harvard man, I don't look at myself any more than necessary." This small gem of inspiration contains Wayne anecdotes on God and country, the old West, friends and family, and acting, and concludes with quotes from others about John Wayne the actor and John Wayne the man.
