In the end , is shot to death, but in so doing he is ab le to dissuade another from following his blood-stained example. Through out the film, Bo ok’s imminent demise is compared with the decline of th e west, as represented by the automobiles and streetcars that have begun to b light the main street of Wayne’s home town. It is unknown if John Wayne was aware that he was dying of cancer when he agreed to film The Shootist; whatever the case, the film is a powerful valedictory to a rem arkable man and a fabulous career.
