Does anybody remember when John Wayne played Genghis Khan?

It was John Wayne's idea. The story goes that he had a studio deal and was left alone in an office where he found the script. He insisted on doing the movie. Howard Hughes okayed it, apparently, but we know how mentally unbalanced Hughes ended up being. It also starred Susan Hayward as his love interest. A red-haired white woman cast as a Tatar woman.

(Not) Fun Fact: This role probably contributed to John Wayne's eventual death from cancer. The movie was shot in the deserts of Utah not too long after the nuclear testing that went on there. 91 of the 220 cast and crew members died of some sort of cancer by 1980. Howard Hughes even had sand shipped back from Utah to Hollywood for reshoots and soundstage scenes.
