Don’t know if you’ve ever seen this but it’s so funny……..

You may remember Gonzales Gonzales from John Wayne movies. He provided

comedy in Rio Bravo, Hell-fighters, and several other John Wayne movies.

This video shows where he got his start. He innocently appeared as a contestant

on 'You Bet Your Life' with Groucho Marx. As the questioning continued, it got

funnier and funnier. Groucho took advantage of the situation based upon audience


John Wayne happened to be watching the show and contacted him after the event.

Wayne insisted he play himself in the movies. Gonzales became a popular character

in JW movies.



Worships Him
The last line, their vaudeville act name: Gonzales, Gonzales & Marx cracked me up!
