JOHN WAYNE’S WAY, LIFE LESSONS FROM THE DUKE – Douglas Brode, 2014

One of my best Christmas presents last year.

It almost seems too good to be true: a book which goes through Wayne’s films, both well-known and under-appreciated, giving a synopsis, a commentary and then a ‘message’ which you can learn by watching.

For example, Rio Bravo (1959): You’re as strong as you tell yourself that you’re going to be, so it’s up to you to stand up and take command of your own life 
Track of the Cat (1954): The only man who need fear his death is the one who knows, deep down inside, that he has not lived his life as he ought to have.
