Personal Quote:

"I produced McLintock! (1963) when I was 25 years old. I don't think if I wasn't John Wayne's son, I would have had that opportunity. It wasn't all smooth, working with my father; there were a lot of bumps along the way, both for him and me, but I wish he were still around so we could get in arguments".


Children: son Christopher; daughters Alicia, Josephine, Maria and Teresa. See more »
