Worth a Thousand Words: The Big Trail

John Wayne, The Big Trail, 1930
I was listening to You Must Remember This, a wonderful podcast in which Karina Longworth explores the secret and/or forgotten histories of 20th Century Hollywood.

Her series on Hollywood stars during World War II, cleverly called Star Wars, has gotten to an episode on John Wayne. She's examining why he didn't sign up for the war but I was more captured by her recommendation to look at stills from his first movie. Oooo la la! This ain't the Duke of popular memory!
