John Wayne was born Marion Robert Morrison, and while attending USC on a football scholarship 1925/1927, got a summer job as a prop man. On the set he became close friends with director John Ford, for whom, among others, he began doing bit parts. His first featured film was Men WIthout Women (1930). After more than 70 low-budget westerns and adventures, mostly routine, Wayne's career was stuck in a rut until Ford cast him in Stagecoach (1939), the movie that made him a star. He appeared in nearly 250 movies, many of epic proportions.
