Celebrate America’s Birthday With America’s Most Patriotic Actor, John Wayne

the-searchers-560.jpg

In his lifetime, John Wayne was nothing if not a devout patriot. He mastered the Western with classics like True Grit, The Searchers, and Rio Bravo; kept America’s spirits high with inspirational war flicks like Sands of Iwo Jima and Operation Pacific; and even courted his fair share of Vietnam-related controversy with The Green Berets. In short, the Duke was American to the bone, like an apple pie with a cold stare and a pistol. Today wraps up AMC’s John Wayne All-American Weekend, so celebrate America’s birthday with its most patriotic actor.
