Bringing the past to life with colour

John Wayne

Young John Wayne from 1930
When Marion Mitchell Morrison was young, he had a dog called Duke, and was given the nickname “Little Duke”. When he started acting in movies, he used the name Duke Morrison until he got his first leading role in “The Big Trail” in 1930, the year this photo was taken, and he became known as John Wayne.
