Staff Review: "John Wayne: The Life and Legend" by Scott Eyman

★★★★★

John Wayne is the most famous American movie star of all time. In a 50-year career, he created memorable characters as the the Ringo Kid, Ethan Edwards, Sean Thornton, Tom Dunston, Kirby Yorke, George Washington McClintock and Rooster Cogburn.  Author Scott Eyman offers up this 658-page biography of the Duke and it's a winner. 

Eyman supplies a smooth-flowing, insightful, critical yet affectionate chronicle of the life and cinematic times of this Hollywood legend. It's a great read.
