Scorecard: John Wayne in Oregon

March 9th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1930's, 1970's, Scorecard series, Side Notes

How important was Oregon in the career of John Wayne?

Let’s see…..

Early Wayne:

John Wayne made two Oregon films in 1930. The first, Rough Romance, was an uncredited bit part. The second, Raoul Walsh’s  The Big Trail,  provided Wayne with his first leading role. Promoted as “The Most Important Picture Ever Produced!”. See for yourself. I recommend it with four stars.

Wayne Hits His Stride:

The gorgeous 70mm format in which The Big Trail was made meant few theaters were equipped to show it. Oops! So it was up to John Ford to make John Wayne a star. He cast Wayne as the Ringo Kid in  Stagecoach (1939) based on the short story by Oregon author, Ernest Haycox.

Late Wayne:

Wayne’s second to last film, Rooster Cogburn, the sequel to True Grit, was made in Oregon in 1975.
