Patrick Wayne gets Pa. Jimmy Stewart museum honor
INDIANA, Pa. — Actor Patrick Wayne is being honored later this year by a western Pennsylvania museum dedicated to actor Jimmy Stewart.
At an Oct. 23 ceremony Wayne will receive one of the museum’s Harvey Awards for himself and another for his late father, western movie star John Wayne.
The James M. Stewart Museum Foundation is based in Stewart’s hometown, Indiana, Pa., about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Patrick Wayne appeared in the movie “Shenandoah” with Stewart. His father appeared in “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” and “The Shootist” with Stewart.
Past Harvey Award winners include June Allyson, Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Ernest Borgnine and Rich Little. The award is named for the 1950 film in which Stewart befriends an invisible rabbit.
