    Can't find actual script, book, or video that confirms that John Wayne said this. Looked at the "Sands of Iwo Jima" script, which is the most common attribution, and the line is not there. Did find "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" by George V. Higgins. The line “This life’s hard, but it’s harder if you’re stupid” is spoke by Jackie Brown. Steven Keats played Jackie Brown in the movie.
