You Bet Your Life….

Gonzalez Gonzales

You may remember Gonzales Gonzales from John Wayne movies. He provided comedy in Rio Bravo, Hell-Fighters, and several other 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 laughter.

John Wayne happened to be watching the show and contacted him after the event. John Wayne insisted he play himself in the movies. Gonzales became a popular character in JW movies.
