Searching for the Enemies: RJ Green
Searching for Papa Luna:A Modern Day Mystery Gordon K. Greene
From the veteran New York Times best-selling biographer comes a major, in-depth look at one of the most enduring American icons of all time, ´´the Duke´´, John Wayne. As he did in his best-selling biographies of Jimmy Stewart and Clint Eastwood, acclaimed Hollywood biographer Marc Eliot digs deep beneath the myth in this revealing look at the most legendary Western film hero of all time; the man with the distinctive voice, walk, and demeanor who was an inspiration to many and a symbol of American masculinity, power, and patriotism. Eliot pays tribute to the man and the myth, identifying and analyzing the many interesting contradictions that made John Wayne who he was: an Academy Award-winning actor associated with cowboys and soldiers who didn’t like horses and never served in a war; a Republican icon who voted for Democrats Roosevelt and Truman; a white man often accused of racism who married three Mexican wives. Here are stories of the movies he made famous as well as numerous friends and legendary colleagues such as John Ford, Maureen O´Hara, Natalie Wood, and Dean Martin. A top box-office draw for more than three decades - starring in 142 films from Stagecoach and True Grit, for which he won the Oscar to The Quiet Man and The Green Berets - John Wayne´s life and career paralleled nearly the entire 20th century, from the Depression through World War II to the upheavals of the 1960s. Setting his life within the sweeping political and social transformations that defined the nation, Eliot´s masterful portrait of the man they called Duke is a remarkable in depth look at a life and the ´´American Century´´ itself. 1.
