‘‘Out here a man settles his own problems’’: Learning from John Wayne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this brief essay, I meditate on the experience of watching Westerns and other TV and film genres with my father. I focus on the figure of Tom Doniphon, the John Wayne character in the film The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, as I consider the links between what my father and I watched together and how I learned, or didn’t learn, to find my way through my adolescent troubles.
