"The Conqueror" (1956)

A biopic about Genghis Khan with John Wayne in the lead role. Yes, John Wayne as Genghis Khan. It's every bit as stilted, awkward, and racially troubling as you can imagine. Look, I love John Wayne movies as much as the next guy, but there really isn't much more you can say about this film other than John freaking Wayne played Genghis freaking Kahn.

"Jobs" is in theaters now, so you can judge for yourself if it's worthy of being in the company of the best or the worst bios that Hollywood's produced.
