John Wayne was the most popular and the most durable star in film history. He was also a national legend, a folk hero, and a powerful symbol of the American Dream. Levy evaluates Wayne's film oeuvre by comparing him with other major stars of his generation and demonstrates that of all American actors, he came closest to the notion of 'actor-as-auteur.'
