John Wayne’s acting career

John Wayne (1907-1979), an American actor, director, and producer, started as an extra, prop man, and stunt man, primarily for Fox Film Corporation.


During his brief career with director John Ford, he played minor roles. Raoul Walsh recommended him for the title role in The Big Trail (1930), a Western filmed in the pioneer widescreen format of Fox Grandeur. Ford strongly endorsed him.


In his early career, Wayne only appeared in three leading roles at Fox before being dropped. After appearing in a few low-budget action films (mostly Westerns), Wayne wouldn’t achieve real fame until the 1939 movie Stagecoach.


Between the 1940s and early 1950s, Wayne appeared in Dark Command (1940), Reap the Wild Wind (1942), Wake of the Red Witch (1948), Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), Rio Grande (1950), and Red River (1948).


He starred in many war films, including Flying Tigers (1942), Combat Seabees (1944), They Were Expendable (1945), and Sands of Iwo Jima (1949) which earned him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor.


The 1950s saw Wayne star in romantic comedies The Quiet Man and Rio Bravo (1959), both set in Ireland.

At that time, Wayne established his own production company, Batjac, where he continued his production activities.


John Wayne appeared in more Westerns in the 1960s and 1970s, such as The Comancheros (1961), The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), and True Grit (1969), for which he won an Oscar for Best Actor as Rooster Cogburn.


He starred in The Longest Day in 1962, as well as In Harm’s Way in 1965. He would later reprise that role in 1975’s Rooster Cogburn.


Throughout his acting career, he starred in over 169 feature films and numerous TV appearances or voice-overs, culminating in the 1976 film The Shootist.
