JOHN WAYNE: Four Gutsy Role Choices

This is a look at a man attempting to change the perception people had of him and prove simply the he was a complete actor.

Marion Robert Morrison changed  his middle name to Mitchell,because his parents had a second son they named Robert. Marion had a more famous name change courtesy of one of my favorite directors "One Eyed" Raul Walsh in 1930 to John Wayne. When he made the first wide screen American movie "The Big Trail".  I don't think either man had any idea where "Duke" Wayne would go from there.
