7 John Wayne Movies Everyone Should See ...


I would guess that a good number of the younger generation have probably not seen many John Wayne movies and therefore probably have no appreciation of just how great an actor he was. He may only have ever won one Oscar, but he would definitely be high up the list in the “people’s choice” as one of the most beloved and best actors ever. John Wayne movies will never be on the menu for a night in with the girls but if you want drama, action, soldiers, cowboys, roughnecks and rollicking good stories, that’s practically guaranteed.

It’s only right to start with this one. Of the many John Wayne movies, True Grit is undoubtedly the most famous, and it’s the one for which he was awarded his only Oscar. In True Grit, Wayne plays ‘ornery and drunken US Marshall Rooster Cogburn – a man who shoots first and asks questions later. But he “never shot nobody he didn't have to”. Pressed into service by stubborn teenage tomboy Mattie Ross, together they hunt down the killer of Mattie’s father. It’s a wonderful story of the Old West!
