Take a look at some rare photos of the actor’s personal life on his massive yacht, the Wild Goose.
John Wayne liked to live off the land. When the Oscar-winning actor wasn’t making movies—like Stagecoach or True Grit, which cemented his status as a movie star—he liked to head over to areas like Mexico or British Columbia on his boat, the Wild Goose, a 136-foot Navy minesweeper that he refashioned into a sea-bound home away from home. He’d entertain his family and a number of his close, famous friends, like Henry Fonda and director John Ford, finding beaches for them to relax on, or dipping into the water to scoop up fresh abalone for lunch. The boat, anchored in Newport Beach, is so iconic that in 2011, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Now, select images of Wayne’s seafaring private life are on display for the public, thanks to son Ethan Wayne (the sixth out of the actor’s seven children), who has curated a series of rare and never-before-seen photos for a special exhibit at the Balboa Island Museum in California, showcasing his father’s “rugged and remote” life on the sea, he tells Vanity Fair.

I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
