Editor's NoteLegendary king of westerns John Wayne lights up the screen in the following cinema classics.SEVEN SINNERS: A sultry singer tries to make a handsome Navy lieutenant forget all about his responsibilities and add him to her collection of men.THE SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS: When a stranger comes to an isolated mountain village and tempers the rough rage of its inhabitants, one of the mountaineers ("the Duke," that is) is still suspicious of this mysterious interloper--and, not incidentally, still bitter over being deserted as an infant by his father.PITTSBURGH: Wayne and Scott are coal miners when Dietrich returns to her old neighborhood to help them start their own business. Though she is later spurned by Wayne for a lady of high social standing, the three remain friends and business partners in a young and prosperous America.THE CONQUEROR: This lavish costume drama, which emphasizes the spectacular and the epic, is loosely based on the life of the Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan. Acts of revenge and clan battles were practically de rigueur in 12th-century China, and no one was better at winning wars and building an empire than the legendary Khan.JET PILOT: A corps of silver jets soars across the majestic blue American skies while a beautiful lady waits faithfully for her hero in this classic Howard Hughes production.
