John Wayne’s incredible lesser-known legacy unearthed in forgotten Star Wars role

JOHN WAYNE - who appears in How the West Was Won today - appeared as a vital character in the Star Wars franchise via voiceover, but was unrecognisable to his legions of loyal fans.

Today, western film fans will get the chance to watch Wayne in another of his standout roles, as the classic How the West Was Won airs on BBC Two from 1.30pm. Wayne heads an all-star cast, which includes the likes of Henry Fonda, James Stewart, Debbie Reynolds and Gregory Peck. Released in 1962, and directed by iconic filmmaker John Ford, it follows four generations of a New England family who move on to a newly tamed town.
