    Default What John Wayne Shaved With

    Big surprise, the manly "Duke" seemed to prefer electric razors and baby powder, but is that a Hoffritz Slant I see tucked in the back there?

    So does this mean Rock Hudson used a lady Gillette then?

    Looks far too clean to actually have belonged to the duke. My dad's bag from the same era is pretty crusty.

    Neat link tho!

    I didn't put up the actual link because it's a pending auction, but just Google "john wayne auction." It has gotten a lot of press. These items have all been released by the family after 32 years of sentimental hoarding.

    I think he shaved with an old rusty Bowie Knife, and still got a BBS every day! Afterwards he would splash on some MoonShine for a nice burn!

    You think one on four's a dogfall?

    I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned.

    Or see you hanged at Judge Parker's
    convenience. Which will it be?

    I call that bold talk
    for a Cat Pee wearing fat man!

    I never knew John Wayne had diaper rash. I wonder if those are the same kind of electric razors Wyatt Earp used.

    Quinine. Also, the hoffritz is not a hoffritz. It looks like a flare tip SS to me.

    Someone pulled the old switcheroo on the Duke!?

    You'd think he would have at least had some Spoilers in there.

    Oh geez. The Duke was a Veg-Man. Next thing you know we'll be hearing Clint wears Drakkar Noir.
    Is this your homework, Larry?

    I was only saying a week or so ago, when someone bought the Lone Rangers straight razor, I would buy the Dukes razor if it ever came up. If I had more money, and that lot had provenance, I would too.

    I still can't believe he wore the Veg. That's great.
