Rumors persist that Wayne's old pal John Ford directed most of The Alamo; cut to 161 minutes for its general release, the film was restored to its original, 192-minute length in 1992.
John Wayne's directorial debut The Alamo is set in 1836: Wayne plays Col. Davy Crockett, who, together with Colonels Jim Bowie (Richard Widmark) and William Travis (Laurence Harvey) and 184 hardy Americans and Texicans, defends the Alamo mission against the troops of Mexican general Santa Ana.
Wayne's production crew was compelled to reconstruct the Alamo in Bracketville, Texas, several hundred miles from the actual site.

 Night Train to Munich VHS
Between the pre-Bond insouciance of the young Harrison, the deadpan exchanges of Radford and Wayne, the overall intelligence of the script, and the steady hand of Carol Reed, this film raises the genre to a very high level.
Taking his cue from Hitchcock's recent success THE LADY VANISHES, Carol Reed borrowed both that film's writers (Sidney Gilliat, Frank Launder) and its low-key comic duo (Basil Radford, Naunton Wayne) to concoct this witty, vastly entertaining spy thriller.
The film barrels to its finish in a dizzying array of twists and turns, with a still-astonishing cable-car escape in the Swiss Alps.

 Amazon Shop - Big Jake [1971] - DVD
In retrospect I would argue that this 1971 film is the first of a trio of film that Wayne made at the end of his career reflecting the passing of the Western.
The film begins with a raid on the McCandles Ranch where Little Jake McCandles (Ethan Wayne, the Duke's youngest son, named for the character he played in "The Searchers") is kidnapped by a gang of cutthroats led by John Fain (Richard Boone).
The other two would be Wayne's next film, "The Cowboys," and obviously his final film, "The Shootist." Of that trio "Big Jake" is clearly the most fun and my biggest complaint about this film is that when it is shown on television they almost always have the first commercial break at the absolute worst moment.

The new Wayne Wang film, "Center of the World", has been getting a lot of attention in the press recently, mostly because of its steamy sex scenes and its focus on the trendy world of dotcoms and intnet startups.
The film is not a collaboration between Wayne Wang and Paul Auster, as some reviewers have suggested, nor was the screenplay written by Paul Auster and Siri Hustvedt.
There are now two other writers crediting with contributing to the story and a different writer altogether is credited with the final screenplay, but hopefully Wayne Wang will remain true to Auster's vision as he has in their other collaborations.

At one point in the film, Wayne tries to avoid the coming war by meeting with an aging Indian chief who is a personal friend of his.
I recognize that it is a film that better expresses the human condition and that from this perspective it is a better film, and one that is to be watched.
In The Searchers, Wayne is again working with Ford, but this time the director expresses the human condition in a different way, by turning Wayne not into the aging voice of wisdom but into the aging voice of bitterness.

Wayne appeared in many strong masculine ("macho") roles in western films and war films, but he also had a down-to-earth sense of humour which allowed him to appear in a pink bunny suit for an episode of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, as well as in comedy movies.
While at the university, Wayne began working around the local film studios.
John Wayne (May 26, 1907 - June 11, 1979), nicknamed "Duke," was an American film actor whose career spanned the evolutionary phase of American cinema, appearing in silent movies and "talkies" alike.

 HSX Prediction Market: StarBonds® : Wayne Wang
This attests to the sort of environment in which young Wayne was reared as it was a household immersed in the Hollywood culture half a world away.
Wang made his pilgrimmage to California to study filmmaking at the California College of Arts and Sciences and thereafter returned home to Hong Kong hoping to buck the prevailing trend there of churning out one nondescript Kung Fu film after another.
In 1995, Wang branched further out to tackle themes not specific to the Chinese experience, with the adaptation of Paul Auster's Smoke, an ensemble cast film starring Harvey Keitel centered around a cigar store heavy with the waft of cigar smoke, a metaphor for the vaporous, unquantifiable flavor and process that is life.

In Stagecoach, the film never takes its eyes off the Wayne character when he's onscreen, as most of the narrative is filmed from within the stagecoach and the location remains unimportant--it could be anywhere since Ford could care less about the setting.
In another of the film's famous action shots, the strapping Wayne kills the three Plummer boys in town with a carbine as he was falling to the dusty street and thereby settles his old scores.
It was Ford's first film in Arizona's Monument Valley, a location he was to use repeatedly in over a quarter of a century of filmmaking--proving location and the country didn't matter much to him, as he was satisfied showing the same mesas for all his pics.

 Stagecoach (1939)
The film's hero is the Ringo Kid (Wayne), who is introduced to the audience in a dazzling tracking shot that opens with him standing statuesquely, grasping his rifle, and ends with a close-up of an anguished Kid who is being thwarted in his attempt to revenge the murders of his father and brother.
It was the first in a long line of films that Director John Ford was to make in Monument Valley (an area he was to turn into his own preserve), and the film that marks John Wayne's emergence from B movie actor status to the rank of screen icon.
As in the films "Grand Hotel" and "Ship of Fools" for which this device was named, the films principle focus is on the interactions between these diverse and colorful characters who have been thrown together by fate and closely confined for a period of time.

 Actor Profile: John Wayne/Brian W. Fairbanks-Writer
Wayne closed out his first decade of superstardom with Howard Hawks’ Rio Bravo, his answer to High Noon, a film he considered leftist for its portrayal of a sheriff who throws away his badge rather than continue to serve a town that abandoned him in his hour of need.
For some unexplained reason, Wayne seized upon the notion that the defeat of Davy Crockett and company at the Alamo was an inspiring patriotic story and, as early as 1948, he was hoping to commit his dream of The Alamo to film.
Waynes colleagues in Hollywood also felt the time was right to acknowledge the living legend in their midst and awarded him the Oscar as best actor for True Grit.
