No brainer to me.

Ward Bond - costar in many films
And Maureen O'Hara - especially in The Quiet Man, and McLintock!

My favorite leading lady would have to be Maureen O'Hara. The Duke and Maureen had such perfect chemistry together.

My favorite male actor would either be Ward Bond or Barry Fitzgerald.

My favourite co-stars are Ward Bond and Walter Brennan.Lee Marvin was quite good also.Especially in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
Favourite actress?Now this is a bit harder but since the Rio Bravo is my favourite John Wayne film I`ll say Angie Dickinson and Maureen O`Hara would be second best.

One supporting actor we enjoy looking for is Hank Worden (we affectionately refer to him as Mose, the character he played in The Searchers). We concur with Hondo's picks for sure, as we have really enjoyed Ward Bond and Maureen O'Hara (we most recently saw all three of them in the movie The Wings of Eagles).

Walter Brennan comes to mind (wow, he had hair in Red River, that was kind of a shock to the old system!), and as I have mentioned in a few posts in other threads, one of my favorites is Gabby Hayes, even if he is only in the B movies. Another one that I think of is Victor McLaglen. The fight in The Quiet Man is one of the best! We liked seeing JW work with Glenn Corbett in Chisum.

Hi Stacy

Duke has some really good co stars its hard to notice them usually because he overshadows everyone but heres ine anyway.
They are in no particular order

1. Stumpy (Walter Brennan) in Rio Bravo and Red River
2. Dean Martin
3. Ben Johnston especially in Chisum
4. Maureen Ohara (terrific in all movies with the Duke)
5. Robert Mitchum/Ron Howard/Stuart Witman (a shame they didnt make more movies with Duke)
6. Richard Boone and Lee Marvin great bad guys in Dukes movies

hi ya,

there are a couple of actors i liked who play with duke one was the gent who played moses in the searchers where he played at being mad so that the inchybums would let him go, and the other is the one who played the priest in the quiet man.

for his ladies who else but the red head she added spice to the movie what on screen magic between them both.

cheers smokey

Thanks for your comments!

I really enjoy all the different questions that have come up on this web page! I I like seeing everbody's different points of view's!

My favorite actress that ever worked with John Wayne was of course Maureen O' Hara, but I also liked the chemistry between him and Lauren Bacall in the Shootest too.

As far as men co-stars this is some of my list: ( In no paticular order)

Dean Martin
Ward Bond
Ben Johnson
Walter Brennan
Victor McClaghlen

And I think I could probably go on and on on that one!
John Wayne was just the best!

I have a strange obsession with Ward Bond (Hallmark has started running Wagon Train on Saturday afternoon) so he has to be my favorite costar.

Maureen O'Hara is my favorite leading lady but Claire Trevor is close behind.
