    • Re: Duke's Movie Studios- Paramount

      Duke's contract with Nat Levine at Mascot
      was non exclusive.
      Paramount hired Duke on a freelance basis for a supporting role
      in Lady and Gent
      The movie was superior to the movies he made at Coumbia,
      and Paramount represented a step back into the major leagues!

      Duke made 13 movies for Paramount,
      including significantly his last one, and his one and only Oscar one!
