Actor Chris Mitchum made three films with John Wayne. "Chisum" (1970), "Rio Lobo" (1970) and "Big Jake" (1971). His Dad, Robert, only made one! "El Dorado" (1967). Chris' charismatic performance was one of the highlights of "Big Jake." In this episode of AWOW he shares his memories of being handpicked by Duke for the role of Michael McCandles and discusses how the directing chores were shared with veteran (and former Republic Pictures director) George Sherman and Wayne.
