His son Patrick is infamous for (badly) hosting the 1990 version of ''Series/TicTacDough'' and respected by cinephiles as a good character actor in many of Creator/JohnFord's films.

* ''Film/SheWoreAYellowRibbon'' (1949): Wayne is Nathan Brittles, an aging cavalry commander with one last duty before retirement: stop an Indian tribe from attacking a fort. Notable because he was playing a 65 year old man at the age of 35, and yet he's so convincing, many people born since Wayne died have a hard time placing it at the '''start''' of his career.

A former college football star at USC (a leg injury led to his well-known gait), Wayne got his start as a bit actor before Creator/JohnFord cast him as a major player in the movie ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}''. From there, he went on to appear in dozens of Westerns, including ''Film/SheWoreAYellowRibbon'', ''Film/TrueGrit'', ''Film/TheSearchers'', and ''Film/McLintock''. Occasionally, he switched to being a soldier (assuming, as was the case in ''Ribbon'', he wasn't both at the same time), and his wartime roles include a paratrooper in ''Film/TheLongestDay''.

If there is a trope in TheWestern, odds are [[TropeCodifier Wayne used it]] (or, almost just as likely, ''[[TropeMaker invented]]'' it). He also did lots of things that are covered by the RuleOfCool. But above all, he just made great movies that people love to watch, full of suspense, silliness, fistfights, and down-home American values. No wonder his style is [[{{Eagleland}} often the caricature of America]] overseas, although nowadays his roles would likely be filled by a BoisterousBruiser.

(As a 17-year-old set dresser, he met an ageing Wyatt Earp several times, and is said to have based his Western characters on his perception of Earp from their conversations). He also did lots of things that are covered by the RuleOfCool. But above all, he just made great movies that people love to watch, full of suspense, silliness, fistfights, and down-home American values.
