No, I never liked him either, (whose real name is
Marion Robert Morrison.) He married 3 times, cheated on his 2nd wife, had 7 children, 26 grander children, smoked 5 packs of unfiltered smokes per day, & was a heavy drinker. When suffering cancer, he lost 100 pounds, needed an oxygen tank, & couldn't walk more than 20 feet.
At the end, he asked his sons to hand him is...38, so he could end his agony..
His first real name is what you say, but then it was changed to Marion Mitchell Morrison.
Really? Have never heard before that he committed suicide, as you say above.
Very hushed up that was. Suppose couldn't have 'The Duke' a coward!
Oh! jonaj, the feet imprints are of his wearing 'cowboy boots'. They don't give the true size of feet, as the 'impression' is only heel, & ball of foot, so there's probably a few length-inches 'missing'! Lol!
He was a tall man, so he would've had regular to large sized feet!
Not particularly. I have only seen one movie in which he actually caught any of my attention,and that was the very last one he ever made!!! I cannot even remember what the name of it was!!! Sorry! He just has never appealed to me.
NO he didn't commit suicide. He just asked his sons for his gun! He DID die from cancer. I always thought he had 3 M'M's for his initials, then was very surprised to see "Robert' as his middle name!
(And yes I did watch a few of his movies, but only because my husband was watching them.)
It would be more than I liked some movies with John Wayne starring in them. My favourite would have to be "the Quiet Man" - John playing opposite Maureen O'Hara. If you've never watched this movie, treat yourself to a couple of hours of great viewing.
My brother is a big fan but I have none of his movies. My dad always said he just wore a different hat for each movie. LOL. From what I have read he was a very rude man and a bigot. Other than that I know that Dean Martin bought his movie horse from him and it's name was Tops.
