John Wayne feud: Hollywood icon labelled Gene Hackman ‘worst actor in town’

JOHN WAYNE lashed out at Oscar winner Gene Hackman, describing the actor as "the worst in town", the western star's daughter once claimed.

The Hollywood icon John Wayne returns to screens today as he stars in the 1948 classic Fort Apache, which airs on Great Movies Action from 2.35pm. Wayne leads a sterling cast, which includes the likes of Henry Fonda and Shirley Temple, in a tale that follows the frustrations of Lieutenant Colonel Thursday after his demotion from Civil War rank of general. Wayne’s character is sent to a remote outpost, Fort Apache, in the Arizona desert, and begins tightening up discipline for his fellow soldiers, infuriating them and the locals in the process.
