[on Al St. John
--aka "Fuzzy"--his sidekick in many of his western films] Fuzzy was an angel unaware, as far as I'm concerned.

Bluffed his way into the "bullwhip" movies telling director Robert Emmett Tansey

, to teach him how to use it. La Rue in turn taught Harrison Ford
for his "Indiana Jones" movies.
