Description

For this paper, I talked about how directors John Ford and Howard Hawks impacted the acting career of legendary actor John Wayne. I discuss how Wayne rose to prominence in Ford's film Stagecoach in 1939, but how Hawks was the one to take his acting to another level by giving his characters more depth. Ford and Hawks essentially "talked" amongst each other through Wayne and made him into this greater idea with their westerns.
