    Plot Summary
    West Point football star Bob Denton is a protege of Colonel Holmes,
    who considers Bob almost a son. Bob is a ladies' man who resists commitment,
    and when he tells girlfriend Evelyn that he has no intention of marrying her,
    she takes revenge by romancing Colonel Holmes,
    to whose Arizona base Bob has been assigned. Evelyn marries Holmes, and the colonel,
    unaware of her former relationship with Bob, encourages Bob in his blossoming romance with Bonita,
    Evelyn's younger sister. With Bonita, Bob finds reason for committing to a long-term relationship,

  • Men Are Like That was a 1931 movie
    starring Laura La Plante and John Wayne.
    It was directed by George B. Seitz,
    and released by Columbia Pictures


    Duke played the part of Lt. Bob Denton
    a West Point graduate, traveling to an Arizona army post.


    However, it was a trite plot, and with unconvincing perfomances
    by Duke and his leading lady, doomed the film to poor reviews.
