Reminder: It was while sidekicking for Roy Rogers at Republic that Hayes, who by now never appeared in pictures with his store-bought teeth, earned the soubriquet “Gabby”, peppering the soundtrack with such slurred epithets as “Why, you goldurned whipersnapper” and “Consarn it!” In Wayne’s early career in the “B” westerns he played many roles along side the “Duke”.
