Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0056631: JOHN WAYNE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare authentic vintage black fountain pen signature on an unevenly-trimmed sheet of paper, acquired in-person in 1962 and affixed with three pieces of browned tape, none touching the autograph itself, to a 4x6-inch beige album page. In fine condition, beyond the aforementioned imperfections; priced accordingly. Western and war film icon John Wayne was nominated for Academy Awards for Sands of Iwo Jima (1949) and The Alamo (1960) before winning for 1969’s True Grit in 1970. His was elsewhere unforgettable— always playing some slight variation on the same character, who was, arguably, himself— in Stagecoach (1939), Reap the Wild Wind (1942), Angel and the Badman (1947), Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), Rio Grande (1950), The Quiet Man (1952), Hondo (1953), The Searchers (1956), The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), The Longest Day (1962), How the West Was Won (1962), The Green Berets (1968), and The Cowboys (1972).
