Synopsis: Millions of Americans know him on horse-back, on foot, and on film--an American idol whose movies merit a special section at video stores across the country even now and reappear regularly on movie channels. But for Wayne, much of his real life, for 15 years, was spent on board the Wild Goose, 136-foot converted World War II mine-sweeper and sister ship to Jacques Cousteau's Calypso. It was where he relaxed and entertained, where he most enjoyed his roles as husband and father and friend. Bert Minshall, captain on the Wild Goose, became more than that--he became confidant, chronicler, and crutch to Wayne, as well as companion to Wayne's children. In hundreds of still pictures, in home movies taken with his 8mm camera, and a diary, Minshall recorded day-to-day life aboard the yacht--interludes with famous guests, as well as routine family activities. Much of that material is included in On Board with the Duke, providing an intimate and revealing glimpse of Wayne and the people around him.
