John Wayne and Robert Mitchum, during the filming of “El Dorado.” Tucson, Arizona. .
Notes from John R. Hamilton: “For the famous photos of Wayne-Mitchum, I said to John Wayne: ‘Duke, I want to get a photograph of you two pro’s together. This will be great!’ When I first set up this shot, both were away from each other in the frame. I said, ‘Come on, I want you really close. Come on, you two, get really close, as close as possible.’ Robert Mitchum remarked, ‘What do you want me to do fuck him?’ Everyone within earshot laughed. I got the photograph I wanted. The combination of the Wayne/Mitchum photograph was electrifying.”
