The list was compiled in 1999, containing the names AFI saw as of the top 25 male and 25 female greatest screen legends whose screen debut occurred in or before 1950. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFI's_100_Years...100_Stars John Wayne at frikkin #13??? That's got to be a political thing... No, I'm not some huge Duke fan, and, sure, he was a right-winger --- but given the sheer magnitude of his stardom and box office (he only made one film that wasn't a hit) he should have been listed at #1 or #2 or at the very lowest #3... But #13?? That has to be blatant leftist bias going into this list. And I'm a leftist.
