John “Duke” Wayne’s younger brother, Robert Morrison, was a producer, assistant director and production associate during the 1940s-60s. He worked on three of his sibling’s Westerns, including McLintock!, The Alamo and The Fighting Kentuckian. But as far as I know, he didn’t appear in any of Wayne’s films.
