John Wayne’s Leading Ladies: Patricia Neal

Patricia Neal: Operation Pacific

Playful and plausible, John Wayne and The Fountainhead actress Patricia Neal’s on-screen chemistry is instant from the start. The intriguing story of the former husband and wife caught in a love triangle, mixed with the dangers of war, leads to a dramatic but believable execution that left the audience lost in the characters rather than the actors portraying them. John Wayne and Patricia Neal paired up again for In Harm’s Way in 1965.
