American actor, one of the historic icons of the silver screen. He was a tough, genial and generally inimitable leading man of action films who, after a slow start, became one of the best known and most successful actors in Hollywood. From his debut, he played in some 190 films.
Wayne grew up in a household of continual bickering. He was an honor student and class president. While working as a laborer at Fox studios, he was cast in the 1929 film "The Big Trail," and achieved a Best Actor Oscar for his performance in "True Grit" in 1969.
Relatively straight-laced in his private life, he married three times and had a total of seven kids. He was a shopaholic, for himself and accompanying his wife, but was not a good businessman, often choosing unwise investments. Wayne smoked five-six packs of cigarettes a day and had a legendary capacity for alcohol. He died of stomach cancer 6/11/1979 and was buried in an undisclosed location.
