Almost done re-reading Scott Eyman book John Wayne: The Life and Legend
What is the last John Wayne book you've read?
Yes Bert is alive and well, the video below was from last year.
I found it on audible, wonder if anyone has read it and can give me a guick review of it before I buy it.
Has anyone read "American Titan" by Marc Eliot?
Quote from Paula;131862
Another biography of John Wayne is on the way. The author is Scott Eyman, who wrote Print the Legend: The Life and Times of John Ford and many other movie-related books. Publication date is April 1, 2014.
Drawing on interviews that author Scott Eyman conducted with John Wayne before his death and more than 100 interviews with the actors family, co-stars, and close associates, this revelatory biography shows how both the facts and fictions about Wayne illuminate his singular life.
John Wayne died more than thirty years ago, but he remains one of the five favorite movie stars of contemporary audiences. Yet, there has never been a comprehensive biography worthy of the man as well as the star. Until now.
The beloved Hollywood icon comes fully to life in this complex portrait by a master biographer whose skillful prose has been hailed as outstanding and compulsive reading by reviewers from The New York Times to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Washington Post Book World called Scott Eyman one of the most distinguished and reliable of popular film historians. In Eymans hands, this enduring symbol of American grit gets the biography he deserves.
Exploring Waynes early life with a difficult mother and a feckless father, Eyman makes startling connections to his later days as an anti-Communist conservative, his stormy marriages to Latina women, and his notoriousand surprisingly long-livedextra-marital affair with Marlene Dietrich.
In addition to his interviews with those who knew Wayne bestmany of whom had never spoken on the record beforeEyman draws on the actors own business records to weave a rich tapestry of American cultural history: the story of a man who went from college football to romantic lead on the silver screen, and who ultimately became the dominantand often domineeringsymbol of his country at mid-century, the quintessential American male against which all other screen heroes are compared.
Through it all, the author provides a nuanced and sympathetic portrait that is as charming, compelling, and complicated as the Duke himself.
