a labor-type guy, i.e. a stereotypical railway worker. In other words, he was an individual. "Cocky and modern:" I doubt all Chinese fit the stereotype of Hollywood: acquiescent, quiet, docile--- cow-like? He was a man, just like any other.
I don't buy it.
Western, and to me the depiction of the West was terrifically accurate--- "Silverado" or "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" were surpassed, in that regard--- and that's saying something.
Remind me what film did Wayne kill all those Indians?
by Wayne; his hatred takes him to a place where he would kill his own niece. Yeah, he's the hero. It's John Wayne, after all. "Stagecoach:" "Like most Westerns of the era, its depiction of Native Americans as simplistic savages has been criticized." wikipedia
I'm not going to search through all Wayne's westerns and do a body count. I think we can agree many died from his rifle and he survived against great odds in every film.
