Here is Lynda's experience with the great John Wayne-
In 1969, she was cast in a role for the John Wayne film “Chisum,” which was filmed in Mexico. She said she will never forget meeting the “Duke” for the first time. “I am standing there and I am looking at this man, and I am thinking, ‘oh my God! It is John Wayne,” she recalled. “And I start to cry.” Disconcerted, Wayne said, “’what’s the matter little lady?’ He loved it, he thought it was funny.” After they got to know each other better, Wayne would spit tobacco juice on her skirt, she recalled with a laugh. “He used chaw, and so did most of the other guys that were out there.” During a break in the filming, she said Wayne came to a party, held at Christopher and Lynda’s home they had during the shoot in Mexico, a bottle of his favorite brand of tequila — Sauza Conmemorativo — in hand. It was on that night Lynda said she showed the Duke she could “drink him under the table.” “He and the stunt guys, they all played dollar poker. He would say ‘shots,’ and that was it. You had it. You drank it.” She was able to keep up with him through the first bottle, and he retrieved another from his truck. She knew she was able to hold her own better than the rest “because they were all ripped, and I wasn’t because I had things to do,” she said. “I had to clean up after this.” What “killed him was I said, ‘can I have one more?’ We never had to do that again. I had to let him know I was no sissy. Just because I cried doesn’t mean I was a sissy.”
