John Wayne's monumental film career spanned six decades. He appeared in more than 170 films, more than a dozen directed by John Ford alone. For an entire generation, he was Hollywood's biggest and most durable box-office star. Incredibly versatile, Wayne starred in just about every genre Hollywood offered: war movies, romantic comedies, police dramas and histories. But it was the Western - the American cinema - where Wayne made his most lasting mark. He was nominated three times for the Academy Award, winning the Oscar for Best Actor in 1969 for True Grit (Paramount Pictures). And his powerful performance in The Searchers (Warner Bros.) has been singled out by filmmakers and actors alike as the greatest performance by an actor on film, ever.
