    • Welcome shcrubery to the JWMB. Come visit with us often.
      If my memory hasn't gotten completely out of hand, I believe Chuck Roberson (also known as "Bad Chuck") was JW's stunt double in many of his later pictures. He was seen in many small roles in JW's pictures. His most prominent role (correct me if I'm wrong, folks) was in McLintock where he played the sheriff.

    • Two come to mid right off: "Good Chuck" Hayward (so named for his outgoing and friendly personality), and "Bad Chuck" Roberson (due to his affection for the opposite sex, according to what Maureen O'Hara observed on the set of Rio Grande!).

      Roberson was in most of the John Wayne films of the late 40's through the 70's, and sometimes got a really juicy part. He even got to romance Yvonne DeCarlo in "McLintock." He was a member of the John Ford Stock Company along wityh the Duke and Ms. O'Hara.

      According to IMDB, Hayward had a horse that could fall on cue named "Twinkle Toes!"

      You have totally shattered my illusions with this topic!!

      Just like Father Christmas is real, until now I believed JW did it all himself!

      Your just kidding right?
      Be who you are & say what you feel Because those who mind dont matter & those who matter dont mind
