The Intonations of John Wayne's Movements
5 February 2004 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

The 24 year old Law student turned actor (John Wayne) has incredible timing in this film. He captures your attention in the medium shots even though he is the not the principal artiste. He reacts to situations rather than instigates them.
