John Wayne: Hathaway Directed Wayne in Six Movies (including True Grit)

Vet Hollywood director Henry Hathaway had directed six pictures starring John Wayne.

Four of these films were extremely popular Westerns, including Wayne’s Oscar-winning film, True Grit.

The Shepherd of the Hills, 1941

North to Alaska, 1960

The Sons of Katie Elder, 1965

True Grit, 1969

 

But the other two count as some of Wayne’s weakest films, both artistically and commercially:

Legend of the Lost, opposite Sophia Loren, 1957

Circus World, co-starring Rita Hayworth, 1964, in which he replaced original director, Frank Capra.
