'No friend was more important to him than Ward Bond. He was conceited, self-centred, hard-drinking, difficult and prickly but he served as Duke' s safety valve in every crisis. He shared his sorrows and guilt but ultimately he was there to share his fun.' Carolyn McGivern , John Wayne : A Giant Shadow
"Wayne was cultured; very charming, polite, elegant. Not from what we hear and read about him, but in the confines of his home. Not even in his friendships with his fellow film makers, but in the confines of himself. He takes off the toupee in those pictures at home, and there he is with a little bit of hair…The graciousness of that gesture." Sam Shaw, photographer.
