      I was just thinking about him yesterday.

      His book is my all-time favorite show biz bio.

      I first saw him as Bill the camp counselor at the Triple R in Spin and Marty on the Mickey Mouse Club.


      Harry was working on a sequal but told me the spirit was willing but the body was tired. He was kind enough to autograph my copy for me when he was feeling better several years ago. I too remember him from Spin & Marty. Wow, I'm getting old.

      Thank you Keith for this updating of John Ford's list and how many films and TV shows each were in. Have you done one for John Wayne's Stock Co. or are you planning to? You Ford list is awesome, thanks again - Jim

      Do we have a thread for the "John Wayne Stock Company"? Since Duke used many friends over and over, it could make an interesting list.

      Thanks both for mentioning this.
      It is something I was considering after
      completing the JFSC.
      You have also probably noticed that the term
      John Wayne Stock Company,
      seems to be more regularly used.

      Would like your feedback on this,
      as my own thoughts would be to
      consider all actors/stuntmen/ crew, used since
      Duke formed John Wayne Productions/ Wayne-Fellows,
      and ultimately Batjac.

      Therefore the movies made by those companies,
      as in these productions, Duke had ultimate control
      as to the cast lists and crew etc.

      That makes sense to me because many of the same actors were used during that combined time.

      Thanks for your work, Keith.

      Seems to me that anyone who was in Pappy's Troup should remain "his". Perhaps, when mentioning, JWST, you could make it an addendum to Pappy's. Or, if that isn't to yall's liking, Maybe you could list all of Duke's but with an asterisk or something that denotes they were originally part of the JFST. Also, I think that the ones Pappy directed should remain on his original list whether Batjac was involved or not. Duke got quite a few of his own after Pappy was no longer there. But Pappy developed the whole idea, and to me, he should receive full credit for the ones he directed. Just "feels" right to me.
