A wonderful film of the western genre, in which the great actor John Wayne played, he remained in the history of American cinema “the last hero”, who did not completely change himself or his ideals of honor, integrity, love for his homeland, in which he was guided by the principle: ” She is either right or wrong, but this is my country.
” He was loved mainly by soldiers, provincials and women. In the latter he enjoyed unchanged success, and among his partners – such famous actresses as Marlene Dietrich, Polett Goddard, Joan Crawford. He was married three times and all on dark-haired beauties. He brought up two daughters and three sons, one of whom – Mike – directed the film company “Batjack”.
