    One of my absolute favorite character actors. I got to meet him several years ago at the Scottsdale Festival of the West. A genuine nice guy.

    Tonight I think I'll watch "Rio Grande" in his honor. He was the last survivor of the old John Ford stock of western characters.

    Good night Harry.

    His father asked John Wayne to take care of his kid and that's what John did.

    sometimes I wonder if being the last surviving of any group is all that great a thing.

    You have buried all of your oldest and best friends.

    What is there left for you?

    I think he was the last one for like 20 years or something.
