I believe that John Wayne made his last film in 1976 called The Shootist bringing an end to his remarkable career that spanned more than 50 years and over 180 motion pictures...maybe his last film he didn't wear a hat but John Wayne always had a thing about hats and playing the good guy who always got his leading lady in his films.

Yes, I assume you mean the standard cowboy hat?  In the movie The Quiet Man he played a character that was Irish.

Not sure, but what about the one with Steve McQueen, where they both were cops?  Was that "Bullet"?  I'm not a big Duke fan but it does seem to me like there was a movie in which he was hatless.

My husband and I are big fans of John Wayne. It's probably UN-American to dislike John Wayne...I think he always wore a Hat.....I sure can't think of any------I was thinking "The Quiet Man" also, but I think your right, he wore one in there, too! I hated it when he passed-on...We love Westerns over here!

A lot of people think he didn't wear one in "The Quiet Man" but he did. Thank you though. I do agree, it would be UN-American to not love or at least like him.

Does a helmet count?  As the centurion in The Greatest Story Ever Told, he wears a helmet, not a hat.  Also, his headdress in The Conqueror (as Genghis Khan!) looks more like a helmet than a hat.
These guesses are based on a cursory review of his filmography on IMDb.  The only John Wayne movie I know really well is Stagecoach, which I love.  Haven't seen many others of his.
There is a movie on the list titled Three Lives, which shows Wayne as "Commentator".  Could not find more information on this documentary short such as whether or not he appeared on screen.

Thank you Nanny, but any head cover is what I mean. You did a great job searching. I really appreciate your help! I think I have seen Three Lives, and no he didn't appear in it. Wow, I am impressed, truly I am. Thank you again dear.

How about "Brown of Harvard" (1926), "Bardleys The Magnificent" (1926), "Words And Music", or "Wake of the Red Witch" (1948) ?

Looks like he wears a skipper's cap in "Wake of the Red Witch".

I called a buddy of mine, he kinds remembers "women without men" and "words and music". He knows Wayne played a bit part in one, an extra in the other. Thinks he didn't wear a hat in either.
