      Hey, great to have you back, Keith! Your input has been sorely missed. I'm also glad I got the question right :hyper: . That doesn't happen much with me. :teeth_smile:

      Just to refresh this post,
      and with the links repaired,
      here is the list again:-

      Hi the westener,

      Thanks for your comments,
      there is however a dedicated thread on

      Claire Trevor

      and of course the answer is there in my reply post, re-posted here:-

      Claire Trevor, was a lifelong friend of Duke,
      but she made only 4 films with him
      The High and the Mighty (1954) .... May Holst
      Dark Command (1940) .... Miss Mary McCloud
      Allegheny Uprising (1939) .... Janie MacDougall
      Stagecoach (1939) .... Dallas

      She and Duke had tremendous chemistry,no more so than in
      Stagecoach where it almost leaps out of the screen.

      They remained lifelong friends and neighbours at Long Beach,
      After the death of Duke's friend Chuck Iverson's son,
      Duke wrote Claire a letter that she treasured,
      the actress said,
      He was a man of deep feelings,..
      deeper than anyone would expect of John Wayne
