Vintage publicity photograph of a young Wayne - jacket and tie
Inscribed photograph signed "My dear/Laura/Good Luck/John Wayne" in blue ink. B/w, 8x10. All-American action hero Wayne (1907-1979, born Marion Michael Morrison in Winterset, Iowa) appeared in more films (over 250) than any other star. Best known for his roles in Westerns and war movies, he was the embodiment of the American hero in over 200 films, fighting (on screen) for his country in many of them. Wayne's long list of Westerns includes Stagecoach (1939), which made him a star, Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), Rio Grande (1950), Hondo (1953), Rio Bravo (1959, which Wayne and director Howard Hawks remade as El Dorado in 1967 and Rio Lobo in 1970) and The Shootist (1976, his last film). Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1949 for The Sands of Iwo Jima, Wayne was awarded the 1969 Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as U.S. Marshall Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. Upper and lower left corners creased. Soiled. Worn at edges and corners. Ink lifted and smudged at "My" of the inscription. Otherwise, fine condition.
