      JOHN WAYNE STOCK COMPANY

      This is a list of the Cowboys, Cowgirls,actors/ stuntmen,
      Duke's family, directors, cinematographers and composers
      that appeared or contributed more than once
      in the movies that Duke Directed and/or Produced

      In the late 1940's, Republic were in fear of losing their top box office draw,
      and were slowly giving Duke more freedom, to produce his own movies.
      Duke chose this one a modest western, for his first movies as a
      John Wayne Production
      Angel and the Badman (1947)
      followed by
      The Fighting Kentuckian (1949)

      Duke also used on occasions, some of his 'Pals'
      to appear his Wayne/ Fellow, Batjac Productions.
      Between 1951-1958, (besides movies he starred in),

      N.B
      Batjac Productions are uncredited on Rio Lobo
      This really does not meet the criteria of this list.
      We wish to profile artists that we believe were in movies
      that Duke had ultimate control in the selection of the cast and crew.

      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.

      Great-thanks-I think John Agar and Jim Davis could be added to the list.

      Thanks for these, they have now been added.

      It's hard to spot them all on initial viewing of the casts,
      so it's good to have extra eyes looking in!!

      I'm not quite sure how the composers are selected for any given film, but I imagine that the producer has a say - it's his money. If so, maybe we should consider Elmer Bernstein and Dimitri Tiomkin as part of the stock company. Duke used them both several times.


      We deal in lead, friend.

      Bill, I thought about including them,
      and now that you have mentioned them, I have,
      Thanks

      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.

      God, she reminds me of me! DUKE

      Thank you, for your input.
      I have indeed kept the two lists separate,
      as although Duke used many of the JFSC
      He also, after John Ford's passing,
      added his own favourites.

      Just a note...Aissa appeared in The Alamo, The Commancheros, Donovan's Reef, and McLintock!

      She should have a 4 by her name!

      Aissa did appear in 4 movies with her father
      but only The Alamo, and McLintock!
      were his productions, which is the criteria used for this list.
