It is noticable in a lot of later John Wayne movies that he always wears a gold bracelet on his right arm.
Is this a piece of Indian jewellery or something for arthritis like a brass ring.
It looks golden and I have never heard or read of John Wayne suffering particularly from arthritis but it could have something to do with injuries
picked up from his days as a stuntman.
Any knowledge person out ther able to confirm it source or purpose.
