Short Bio: The last of the B-Western stars, Morris was trained as a military pilot, and after a year as a flight instructor, he eventually went into combat in the Pacific theater as a F6F Hellcat pilot stationed on the carrier Essex. His combat record included 57 missions & 7 kills, qualifying him as an ace. Three of his planes were so badly damaged by enemy fire during his combat duty that they were dumped into the seas as “unfit for duty.”
