In honor of the what would have been John Wayne's 111th birthday this May, the Duke's son and President of John Wayne Enterprises, Ethan Wayne opens his vault of never-before-seen photos and rare memorabilia for HDNET Movies' Western Icons film collection starting May 18. 

Ethan Wayne will host 10-nights of western classics on the network celebrating his father and the legendary actors of his generation with a double-feature each night starting at 7 p.m. EST. Also before each film, Ethan will tell personal stories about the stars and share a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes photos and select memorabilia related to the films from his collection at John Wayne Enterprises.   

Some of the rare pieces include John Wayne’s original prop assistant card from his first job in cinema on the Fox Film lot and his five favorite films, as written on a card he filled out for The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
