Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Winter 2019 9 On Joe Yrigoyen, the stuntman: "He probably rode Trigger more than Roy did." And amid the framed movie posters and lobby cards in Ellerbe's den, there's color photographs of him standing on location in the very places many of the Hollywood westerns were filmed. "That's the barn they used in "Rio Bravo," he said of one. "That's a rock that Gene Autry sat on," he said of another. "Monument Valley is cowboy heaven," he said of the film locale he has visited on the Arizona/Utah border. He even has a picture of himself in front of the very sand dune that actress Natalie Wood ran down near the end of "The Searchers," the 1956 movie starring John Wayne as an American Civil War veteran on a journey to rescue his niece Continued on Next Page ❱❱ "I'm a big deal on locations," said Nikki Ellerbe, pictured, left, in front of a dune featured as a backdrop of the 1956 film "The Searchers," directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne as an American Civil War veteran in search of a niece (Natalie Wood) taken by the Comanches. The poster for this classic film seems to attempt to create a catchphrase with the words "he had to find her... he had to find her..." prominently featured. But it was a line of dialogue in the film that went "viral." During a dramatic confrontation between Martin Pawley (Jeffrey Hunter) and Ethan Edwards (John Wayne) the angry Martin tells Ethan, "I hope you die!" Ethan responds, "That'll be the day!" That line inspired a young Texas moviegoer and rock musician, Buddy Holly, to write the song "That'll Be The Day." COURTESY OF NIKKI ELLERBE WARNER BROS.
