Riding with the Duke: John Wayne in Arizona – Benson

February 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


John Wayne was born in Iowa and lived for most of his adult life in California. Yet, he spent many years exploring, living, and investing in Arizona, where he produced his own films, raised cattle, operated a game ranch, and was seemingly everywhere at once. Wayne remains an iconic presence in American popular culture. In this talk, Gregory McNamee, who often writes about film and western history alike for such publications as the Encyclopaedia Britannica and The Hollywood Reporter, looks at the Duke’s long career in Arizona. A slide show accompanies this talk and that the host organization must provide a laptop, projector, and remote.
