John Wayne's 100th Birthday & Original Memorabilia High Demand! Celebrate this Hollywood icon's life with our extensive collection of Original John Wayne Movie Posters, Autographs and RARE Memorabilia.
News-Antique.com - Jun 12,2007 - John Wayne was born May 26, 1907, in Winterset, Iowa, 100 years ago and died 28 years ago today, June 11, 1979. I remember the day as I had just returned from a Naval Submarine deployment. Walking into a bookstore at the local mall, was a huge table stacked with John Wayne books. On the other side of the table was a man scanning the books. I knew something had happened, as I asked the man, “did John Wayne die”? The said look on his face was my answer, before he even responded with, “he sure did”. My eyes became misty over a man I never even met. Alone among his generation of movie stars, he remains an apparently permanent image of American masculinity.
We celebrate his life with an impressive collection of Original John Wayne Vintage Movie Posters, Autographs and even one of his ORIGINAL High School Year Books!

For over 25 years Conway’s Vintage Treasures has been scouring the universe in search of the most unusual collectibles and antiques. Not the typical material you see at most antique shows, but rare, selective material like PRIMITIVE FINE ART, highly Rare AUTOGRAPH items from some of the most extraordinary personalities that ever lived. We also get excited over Historical and Hollywood memorabilia such as original PRESIDENTIAL documents and stunning Vintage MOVIE POSTERS. These were the posters actually used in the movie theatres over 50 years ago before the computer generated posters replaced the highly talented movie poster artists of the silver screen era. The vintage artwork on many of these movie posters is amazing. For example, note the stunning artwork for “House on Haunted Hill”, a 1959 horror classic starring Vincent Price.
