John Wayne

John Wayne’s final interview with Barbara Walters – ‘You’ll be in trouble if we air this!’

John Wayne gave his last interview just a few months before his death, confessing to Barbara Walters how "scared to death" he was of women and expressing incredibly controversial views of their role in society even for almost 50 years ago. The interviewer exclaimed at him: "Why don't you just keep your mouth shut?"

During his last 15 years, John Wayne suffered from serious health issues. The heavy smoker was diagnosed with lung cancer in the mid-sixties, resulting in having one of his lungs and a couple of ribs removed. Determined to maintain his macho image, Duke often still insisted on doing his own stunts in his movies and continued to puff on cigars despite giving up cigarettes.
