Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[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. He was a wonderful guy, and I wish he were still here to see how long the films had lasted . . . he was the greatest ad lib artist in the world. He could stumble over a matchstick and spend 15 exciting minutes looking for what he stumbled over.

Trivia:

LaRue's film sidekick, toothless, grizzled Al St. John, was formerly a member of the Keystone Kops, Their first pairing was Law of the Lash (1947). See more »
