Duke Did Not Shed Many Tears in Films or in Public, but there were times that He would Tear Up if He Saw or Heard about someone that had No Control over something Bad that was happening to them.
Below is a Favorite Story about One Time that I know that He Did Tear Up, and You Did Not Want get in His Way to Fix It if He could, Because You Might Just Get a KNUCKLE SANDWICH !!!

Duke Loved the saying that the Brits would say about the Yanks that were in the Britain in World War 2.
Over Here !!!
Now That I Have Heard All You Brits Talk, I just Wonder WHO Is Over Sexed ?
Thanks again for another great story about the Duke. The thing I admire about him is when he did something really extraordinary like this, it wasn't with a bunch of show. Almost no one knew what he was about doing until after it was done, unlike many of today's stars who have an entire film crew in tow whenever they venture out to "help". "I assure you, they have already been repaid."
No, Duke just saw something that needed doing and he did it. May we all be so inclined.
Thanks again Bill!Tbone

Duke did a Lot of Very Good things with His Money, and Pat Stacy said that He had Very Little Money in the Bank at His Passing, because He Gave it all away to People the Needed It !

You know that I thought there was a movie where he did tear up, and I think it was an early movie of his. He almost teared up in The Green Berets when he saw the small boy looking for the man who took care of him.
I'll get back with you. I may be mistaken, but it seems that there was one movie where he did tear up.

At the end of “The wings of Eagles” John Wayne’s character ‘Spig’ Wead sheds a tear as he is transferred off the ship.
