Which John Wayne Movie Should You Star In?
by Jody Mabry

John Wayne was one of America's most famous and iconic movie stars of all time. While most people think of him as the prototypical tough cowboy, he was in hundreds of movies, with many different character types. Some were about football, while others were about war. No matter what role John Wayne took on, though, he was always tough as nails and he was always cool. 

If you were to be the star of one of John Wayne's movies, which one would it be? The Quiet Man was one of his few romantic comedies. Would that suit you best? If you could play the role of a rugged Westerner, you might be the star of The Searchers, True Grit, Rio Bravo, El Dorado or many more, including the legendary Western Stagecoach. If you could pull off playing a marine, you might be a good fit to star in The Green Berets or the Sands of Iwo Jima.
