Flags, had nice words for his ex-wife, Griffith, that he had gone with his daughter, Stella and referred fondly to Dakota:
“Still calls me Daddy, and I love it, you have no idea. We had 20 years of beautiful family life that she was beautiful, but the best is yet to come. No matter how many movies or theatrical productions, you (to Stella) you’ve been my best production.”
