Funny, and here from watching Wayne walk around in some of his earliest movies, I thought he walked just fine BEFORE meeting Paul.

 

(...which of course leads me up to this obvious punchline...)

 

I guess Duke didn't believe in the old adage..."If it ain't broke, don't..ahem..Fix it!"

 

Badum-CHING!

 

Sorry.

 

(...btw smitty, I went through Paul's filmography and counted a total of 14 films the two were in together)

Fix was also a writer who got credit for it in several Ford/ Wayne movies. He was also the father-in-law of Harry Carey, Jr. who so recently left us.

 

Of course it took six years as "Marshall Micah Torrance" on *The Rifleman* for me to know who he was. This was one of the great things about TV, it gave so many actors I love the chance for me to see them work as we couldn't afford movies. Later I found out just how extensive a career many had before that. To me, they were stars.
