    Re: Family Pals Of The Saddle- Robert E. Morrison

    Most will admit that Duke,
    gave his younger Robert 'Bobby'
    a job, out of a sense of brotherly duty.
    Bobby held positions in Wayne-Fellows Productions,
    and later worked for Batjac.

    Mary Morrison often repeated to Duke,
    What are you going to do for Bobby?
    So Duke created jobs for him, and helped
    Bobby etablish himself in the industry.

    From Duke:- The Life And Image Of John Wayne.

    The Only vivid memory of Iowa,
    Duke Said,
    was when my brother was born, and I was put out for the day....
    Named after Mary's father, Robert became the apple of her eye,
    and she doted on him, far more than she had ever over Marion.
    Duke resented this, and grew closer to his father.

    Pliatr Wayne maintained.
    The happiest part of Duke's childhood ended the day his brother was born
    Allthough tied to his mother's apron strings, Bobby, looked up to Duke,
    and became a loyal brother.
    He was best man, when Duke married, his first wife Joesphine Sanez.
    Over the years, Duke grew fonder of his brother, and as adults,
    the two formed a teasing relationship.

    Bobby was a heavy drinker and a womanizer,
    and Ironically this angered and embarrased Duke.
    No more so, when Bobby and nephew Michael, went bar hopping,
    one night, and after an auto accident, ended up in hospital.
    However Duke did his best for his brother.

    Outsiders found Bobby, a delighful man, warm and friendly,
    and in some respects, an imitation of Duke.

    When Bobby died, the news came as a terrrific shock to Duke.
    In spite of their differences, Duke loved him,
    and enjoyed their testy relationship.
    Duke felt his nuclear family had gone!

    Keith,

    We're really impressed with all the neat family photos you've been sharing.

    Do you mind if I ask where you've found them? What gems!

    Great pics EE.

    I can't image how Duke dealt being cast aside like he was by his mother.

    no but how great that he loved his brother and always looked after him - all the things i read about the duke seem to point to him being the same sort of person off the screen as he was on it

    With all I have read about Duke, I still know very little about Robert.

    Re: Duke's Brother- Robert E. Morrison

    From an interview with Andrew Fenady:

    H: Now did HONDO lead more or less directly to your writing CHISUM?

    AJ: They asked if I would accept Bob Morrison, who was Duke’s brother, as associate producer. Well, he and I got to be very close. He was a wonderful, wonderful gentle man. He was a tough guy, but he was very gentle. And he kept saying, ‘A.J., write something for Duke. He needs something good.’ And I always had this idea about CHISUM. And I wrote a format, a story outline, and I called Michael (Wayne) and I said I’d like to come over and talk to you about something for Duke. It’s called CHISUM.’ He said, ‘Oh, the Chisholm Trail.’ I said, ‘No. That was Jesse Chisholm, who was part Comanche, and this is John Simpson Chisum, the cattle drive from Texas to New Mexico.’ He said, ‘Oh. That do sound like Duke, don’t it?’ Anyhow, I went over there, and that’s a long story you can read about in my book when I write it, but that’s how that came about: Bob Morrison via Michael Wayne via the Duke, and we did CHISUM. "

    Lots more about John Wayne and Chisum in the interview.

    I do not own this picture. I found it on the internet some years ago.
    It is The Duke and his brother Robert.
