  Gabby and his stunt double at Republic Pictures, Walt LaRue

From a magazine article:

"Hollywood look-alikes George "Gabby" Hayes and his stand-in Walt LaRue are so similar in

appearance, they often confuse the director. We know Gabby, though, by the characteristic way he

crinkles his nose. Gabby receives hundreds of fan letters asking for a snip of his beard."

"Until Gabby was almost fifty he had never had his feet in stirrups, as he spent his first twenty-seven

years in show business singing, dancing, providing laughs on burlesque and vaudeville stages throughout

the USA."
