It’s All in the FamilyAnnouncement Date : Jan 1 , 1960
Under the banner of Wayne Fellows Productions, and later his own production company named after the ship in “Wake of the Red Witch,” Wayne produced a number of memorable and award winning motion pictures throughout the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. In 1960, Wayne produced, directed and starred in “The Alamo,” which went on to receive seven Academy Award nominations, including for best picture, at the 33rdannual Academy Awards.
In addition to working with his longtime colleagues and co-stars on these productions, Wayne maintained a family environment on set throughout his career. With seven children, he immensely enjoyed the company of his family on set as visitors, actors and as members of the production team.
Throughout the last two decades of his career, Wayne’s children appeared in films such as “Rio Grande,” “The Quiet Man,” ‘The Conqueror,” ‘The Searchers,” “The Alamo,” “Donovan’s Reef,” “McLintock,” and “Big Jake.” The picture shown is John Wayne on the Rio Grande set with his son Patrick.
