Furious John Wayne blasted ‘degrading’ film by his biggest Hollywood rival


John Wayne didn’t just make films, he passionately defended the purity of his beloved Western and war movies. The Duke furiously attacked anyone he thought was debasing the genres – including one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and his former friend.

John Wayne was as fierce and formidable off-screen as he was on, virulently and vocally leading the Hollywood charge against suspected communists and anyone he felt tarnished the sacred spirit of ‘All-American’ values. He famously turned down films from Steven Spielberg to Clint Eastwood because he did not agree with their tone or message. He absolutely hated two movies by one of his fellow titans of the Silver Screen. The Duke’s fury over the classic western High Noon is well known but he was even more outraged by a subsequent war film.
