John Wayne is one of the most iconic actors to grace the movie screens. The legendary actor quickly established himself as the premier Western actor in Hollywood almost as soon as he started acting.

He was tall, handsome, and well-spoken. John Wayne was also an incredibly talented horseman. And perhaps above all else, he had spectacular ability to handle a gun. All of these things combined with his acting awarded him with the nickname “Duke.”

Certainly, if you’ve seen any of his movies, you’ll know that this nickname fits well with his personality. So, in remembrance of John Wayne, the estate that runs his social media still had an excellent throwback.
