John Wayne's wife of twenty-five years offers an intimate look at her celebrated husband, his career, his circle of friends, and his place in the American myth
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Pilar Wayne was John Wayne's third wife and legal widow (they were separated at the time of his death in 1979). Her biography of her husband for 25 years traces Wayne's first marriage to the saintly Josephine, second marrige to spitfire Chata, three-year affair with Marlene Dietrich, and his fight against cancer; and gives colorful gossip about Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, and Geraldine Page. Co-author Thorleifson keeps Wayne's film career firmly in perspective, and Pilar is more edifying than exploitive, as one might have suspected at first. This is a good antidote to the so-far uninteresting literature on one of the screen's legends. Christopher Schemering, formerly with Arlington Cty. P.L., Va.
