Al Barker Jr. as “Fats”
Filling the boots of Fats, Al Barker Jr. made his movie debut in “The Cowboys”before later appearing in the hit TV show “Bonanza” and big-screen drama “The Salton Sea.” Barker went on to a career in law enforcement, retiring from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, but he never forgot his time on set with John Wayne. On a trip to the community of Belle Fourche, which is the South Dakota destination of the cattle drive in the film, Barker talked to EverythingSouthDakota.com about working with the Duke: “He was an American icon. It was an incredible experience working with John Wayne.”
