Was he really the character everybody said
When I first met Mr. Monroe at Bonneville in the 60’s I felt he was a little on the weird side. He was almost to the point of being obnoxious. He loved the women and in the evening when we were in town and crossed over into Nevada where there was a Casino he was very forward with the younger women. It didn’t seem to hurt his popularity because every one including me really loved the guy. I’m glad I got to meet the man that owned “The Worlds Fastest Indian”. That movie has been playing on our local cable TV for some time now and I have watched at least four times. As I remember some of his tales, if they were to be believed then the movie is pretty accurate.
