Patriotism: Have It Your Way

This 1978 film, narrated by legendary actor and Academy Award winner John Wayne . . . presents definitions of patriotism by U.S. Citizens, members of our armed forces and Vietnam POW returnees. The voices of Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John Kennedy express reasons why American servicemen fought and died for their country through the years.

John Ford and John Wayne


Marion Mitchell Morrison
(born Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979), better known by his stage name John Wayne and the nickname Duke, was an American actor, director, and producer. An Academy Award winner for True Grit (1969), Wayne was among the top box office draws for three decades.[2][3]

Born in Winterset, Iowa, Wayne grew up in Southern California. He found work at local film studios when he lost his football scholarship to the University of Southern California (USC) as a result of a bodysurfing accident.[4]:63–64 Initially working for the Fox Film Corporation, he mostly appeared in small bit parts. His first leading role came in Raoul Walsh's lavishwidescreen epic The Big Trail (1930), which led to leading roles in numerous B moviesthroughout the 1930s, many of them in the Western genre.

Wayne's career took off in 1939, with John Ford's Stagecoach making him an instant mainstream star. Wayne went on to star in 142 pictures. Biographer Ronald Davis says: "John Wayne personified for millions the nation's frontier heritage. Eighty-three of his movies were Westerns, and in them he played cowboys, cavalrymen, and unconquerable loners extracted from the Republic's central creation myth.
