Rick Lenz went from Broadway & movies ("Cactus Flower") to TV ("Hec Ramsey") to John Wayne. In "The Shootist," Rick added comic relief to the somber story of Duke's heartbreaking portrayal of a dying gunman. Directed by Don Siegel, it was Wayne's final feature and, in it, Lenz was reunited with his Broadway co-star, Lauren Bacall.
