I met him in 1967 when I was working as a policeman in Newport Beach, CA.
He was quite a gentleman - and INTRODUCED himself as:
MARION MICHAEL MORRISON - but said I'd know him as John Wayne; and he invited me for breakfast at Bellemy's Restaurant across the street from the Balboa Bay Club. Now a Mickie Dees is there (McDonalds).
He was quite a genuine nice fellow and was really down-to-earth. Not like Buddy Epson whom Andy Devine (said Ebson was a real SOB) wanted me to write a citiation to.
Ah the old days... 44 years have gone by....
