      PatrickWayne2004[1].jpgPATRICK WAYNE


      Date of birth
      15 July 1939
      Los Angeles, California, USA

      Birth name
      Patrick John Morrison

      6' 2" (1.88 m)

      Misha Anderson (8 May 1999 - present)
      Peggy Hunt (11 December 1965 - 1978) (divorced)

      Son of John Wayne and Josephine Alicia Saenz.

      Half-brother of Ethan Wayne, Aissa Wayne, and Marisa Wayne.

      Brother of Michael Wayne, Toni Wayne and Melinda Wayne

      Was offered the role of Superman in the Superman (1978) film but declined because of his father's cancer.

      Uncle of Brendan Wayne.

      Nephew of Robert E. Morrison.

      Stepson of Pilar Wayne.

      Met his second wife, Misha Anderson, at a mutual friend's daughter's wedding at the Sherwood Country Club.
      Sometimes Credited As:
      Pat Wayne

      Possessing his father's durable good looks, vigor and charm,
      this tall, strapping, exceedingly handsome second son of John Wayne
      had huge boots to fill in trying to escape his legendary father's shadow
      and corral Hollywood fame on his own terms. But attempt he did and,
      looking back, he may not have achieved the outright stardom of his father
      but certainly did quite admirably, making over 40 films in his career
      -- nine of them with his dad.

      One of four children born to Duke's first wife, Patrick John Wayne
      carried his father's name, so it seems natural that a similar destiny would be in the making.
      Patrick made his debut film bit at age 11 in his father classic western
      Rio Grande (1950) and proceeded to apprentice in The Quiet Man (1952),
      The Sun Shines Bright (1953), The Long Gray Line (1955), Mister Roberts (1955),
      and The Searchers (1956), some with and some without his father's name
      above the title credits.
      All the above-mentioned films, however, were helmed by family friend
      and iconic director John Ford.
      Following high school, Patrick attended Loyola University and graduated in 1961
      (older brother Michael Wayne graduated five years earlier).
      During this time, he went out on his own to star in his own film,
      the second-string oater The Young Land (1959).
      Realizing he was not quite ready to carry his own film, he returned to the family fold
      and gained more on-camera confidence throughout the 1960s
      supporting his father in The Alamo (1960), Donovan's Reef (1963),
      McLintock! (1963), and The Green Berets (1968).
      A few exceptions included a role in Ford's sprawling epic Cheyenne Autumn (1964),
      his turn as James Stewart's son in the frontier adventure Shenandoah (1965)
      and in An Eye for an Eye (1966) in which he and Robert Lansing played bounty hunters.
      He also co-starred in the short-lived comedy western series "The Rounders" (1966).

      Following work on his dad's Big Jake (1971), Patrick broke away again
      and sought success on his own. Interestingly, he earned more recognition
      away from the dusty boots and saddle scene and into the sci-fi genre.
      His career peaked in the late 1970s as the titular hero braving Ray Harryhausen
      monsters and saving Tyrone Power's daughter Taryn in the
      popular matinée fantasy Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977),
      then battled more special effects creatures in the Edgar Rice Burroughs
      film adaptation of The People That Time Forgot (1977).

      Patrick was a smoother, more gentlemanly version of the Wayne package
      with a completely captivating smile and accessible personality.
      He co-starred as a romantic love interest to Shirley Jones in another brief TV series
      "Shirley" (1979), and occasionally forsook acting chores to emcee game shows
      and syndicated variety series.
      Although the scope of his talent was seldom tested over the years,
      he was a thoroughly enjoyable presence on all the popular TV shows
      of the 1970s and '80s, including "Fantasy Island" (1977),
      "Murder, She Wrote" (1984), "Charlie's Angels" (1976), and "The Love Boat" (1977).
      And he certainly wasn't hard on the eyes.

      Following the death of older brother Michael in 2003,
      Patrick became Chairman of the John Wayne Cancer Institute.
      Divorced in 1978 from Peggy Hunt, he is married (since 1999) to Misha Anderson.

    • Patrick was a regular of thje
      John Ford Stock Company
      ultimately becoming a regular of his father's
      John Wayne Stock Company


      Patrick made 10 films, maybe 11, and 2 TV specials,
      with his father, and they were,

      Big Jake (1971) .... James McCandles

      Rio Grande (1950) (uncredited) .... Boy
      Stagecoach (1939)- Many think he was the baby!

      This bit of trivia, I find fascinating, what do you think,

      Was offered the role of Superman in the 1978 film, but declined because of his father's cancer.

      The family are locked in a feud, as to the rights of their fathers legacy,
      and the situation is constantly changing.

    • Last I heard, he has a magic show and did a performance at the Bohemian Club for the super rich. Unfortunately he didn't take to moves as did his Dad.

      For those of you who frequent eBay, you probably noticed movie posters signed by Patrick for sale. Here is a link to the official site that carries those posters.

      Most importantly, Patrick is the current Director of the John Wayne Cancer Institute.

    • Again, from a woman's perspective, Patrick Wayne was a very handsome young man, and played very likeable characters (at least the ones I saw :rolleyes: ). Looking at the picture Keith posted in the orignal post of this thread, I would say he has aged VERY well - still a handsome man!

      Here are a few web sites that focus on Patrick Wayne (including one that mentions that bit of trivia that Keith shared . . . ) -

      Just for your information, Patrick Wayne had a birthday on July 15 and turned 70 years of age. Can't believe that he would be that old. If this is a duplicate then I apologize for the repeating post.

      Cheers :cool: Hondo

    • Re: Sons Of The Saddle- Patrick Wayne

      I saw Patrick Wayne in a dinner theater production in the late 1980s of "Mr. Roberts" where Patrick played the title role (Henry Fonda's in the movie). As I recall he was quite good. BTW - the one playing the doctor's part in that production was the guy who played the doctor in the "I Dream of Genie" TV series.
