Pilar Pallete is a Peruvian former actress who had an uncredited role in John Wayne’s directorial venture ‘The Alamo’. She was also Wayne’s third wife and was married to him for several years before their separation in 1973. Pallete was a fledgling actress when she met Wayne in 1953 in Peru. Wayne was there to scout locations for ‘The Alamo.’ They married in 1954, on the very day Wayne divorced his previous wife. Unlike the other women in his life, Pallete took an active interest in his career while she wasn’t much interested in pursuing her own. This was Wayne’s most public relationship and he and Pallete went on to have three children. After their separation and Wayne’s death in 1979, she married two more times. In October 1987, she published her own account of her relationship with Wayne in a non-fiction book titled ‘John Wayne: My Life with the Duke’.
