John Wayne was the original freedom fighter, which makes the Indians he killed freedom haters that tried to steal his land.
John Wayne died three times, the first in The Man who shot Liberty Valance but the test audience couldn't believe it so all scenes of his body were left out of the final edit. He died a second time in the cowboys but again the test audience couldn't accept such nonsense so they had his body disapear. He died a third time at the end of the shootest at which point he was frozen with the agreement that he won't be unthawed till World War III.
No man named after him has ever had a good life.
