Known to many as simply: "The Duke".
He starred in such great movies as The Alamo, The War Wagon, True Grit, and many, many more.
"The other day, I ate four Baked Potatoes while watching a John Wayne movie. It was one of the manliest nights of my life."

It was developed in 1942.
Nicknamed the "John Wayne" because he was shown in a training film opening a can of K-Rations, the can opener is keychain sized and consists of a short metal blade that serves as a handle (and also a screwdriver to the resourceful), with a small, hinged metal tooth that folds out to pierce the can lid. A notch just under the hinge point keeps the opener hooked around the rim of the can as the device is "walked" around to cut the lid out. A larger version called the P-51 is somewhat easier to operate.
Not to be confused with sticking your nose in the air. The Chin lets people know your important.
