Out of stock
As a boy living in Glendale, California he delivered medicine for his father, the local pharmacist. His best friend was his dog “Duke”, providing his later-life epithet, and his name was Marion Morrison. If you haven’t figured it out by now, we’re referring to John Wayne. While attending USC, he got his start in movies from Tom Mix. Mix hired the “Duke” as a prop man in return for football tickets. Director, John Ford, gave him his first break, with a role in the 1930 movie “Men Without Women.” After innumerable low-budget films he achieved star status with the 1939 film “Stagecoach.” Offered is a sensational 8″ x 10″ photo, signed and inscribed “To the Molers, June and I say Hello John Wayne”, with the added “X” for the canine in the picture. The photograph is about EX condition with mild corner wear and a light crease in the upper right. The signature has been deemed pan style=”font-weight: bold;”>MINT 9 by PSA. Included in this collection is an original Western Union Holiday Telegram with greetings to “Mr. and Mrs. Frank Moler, Season’s Best Wishes. Love Pilar and Duke.” Finally, there are also included two vintage photographs of John Wayne with his sons aboard his yacht. Incidently, Moler, we’ve discovered, captained John Wayne’s yacht for eight years.
