Duke Haney

Duke Haney, a.k.a. Daryl Haney, was born and raised in Virginia and spent most of his adult life working in the movie business as an actor and screenwriter, with 20 feature film credits as the former and 22 as the latter. He used pseudonyms for some of the screenplays and went by “D. R. Haney” as the author of Banned for Life, a novel, and Subversia, a collection of essays. After he was struck by a car in a crosswalk on in Hollywood, a friend claimed he walked like John “Duke” Wayne and gave him the nickname by which most people know him and which he belatedly adopted as his pen name for the memoir Death Valley Superstars: Occasionally Fatal Adventures in Filmland.
