Overview

John Wayne: The Genuine Article by Michael Goldman

Fans of Hollywood and Americana will be eager to own the authorized photographic account of John Wayne, cinema legend.

John Wayne: The Genuine Article provides readers a rare glimpse into the life of one of the most iconic movie stars of all time through a treasure trove of memorabilia, stories, and interviews. This definitive book includes John Wayne Enterprises' collection of never-before-seen letters and telegrams as well as incredibly compelling text from Wayne's unfinished memoir. Important milestones in the Academy Award-winning actor, director, and producer's life are also well documented here through anecdotes, photos, and visually rich ephemera including boots, hats, and saddles. The story of John Wayne's rise, reach, and influence in American culture is alive and well in this brilliant opus. With a foreword by Jimmy Carter and a preface by his son Ethan Wayne, John Wayne: The Genuine Article presents the complete story of how an ordinary man became a top box office draw for six decades, and a larger-than-life Icon known simply as the Duke.

My husband continues to enjoy this book which I purchased for him. There is so much to explore on the life of John Wayne ... He is the "Real Deal" and well known "Patriot".

I gave this to my son-in-law for Christmas. He loves it, he is a John Wayne fan and started reading as soon as he opened his gift of this book.

Not exactly a "good read" but an excellent coffee table book. Very interesting information, copied memorabilia and photos. The lack of continuity of time line moved me back and forwards in the book on occasion - but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
