    Truly a sad end for a lovely actress :( .

    itdo, we agree with you, she was perfectly cast in North to Alaska as "Frenchie" (if I remember correctly - it's been well over a year since we have watched it). Speaking of that, Roland, did you just happen to remember her line about jumping into the river/gold mine or have you watched North to Alaska recently? It's definitely one of our favorite Duke movies for "relaxing" and just having fun!

    First time I responded on this topic. Really like it a lot, and miss it when you don't post for the day. Sorry you miss us today, hope to hear from you soon.

    Cheers B)


    Ditto, ditto! Great job, Arthur! We concur with Hondo, and enjoy seeing all these little known facts appear, for the most part on a daily basis.

    Just out of curiosity, is this information which you have already amassed in preparation for your book, or just how do you do it? :rolleyes:

    68 years ago the actor De Witt Jennings died aged 58 he appeared as Captain Dunn in The Deceiver (1931) a film that will live in infamy among all Duke Fans . . .


    I must admit, you had me on this one - for the life of me, I couldn't remember anything about this film. So I went to IMDb, and remembered why you would make this remark . . . :P

    Arthur and Chilibill,

    Andy Devine has always been one of my favorite actors. Currently, we have a dozen of the old Roy Rogers westerns on DVD, where Andy is cast as Roy's sidekick Cookie Bullfincher. He rates right up there with Gabby Hayes for me :D . As a child, back in 1955, he used to have a TV show called Andy's Gang, which I enjoyed watching. Here's a comment from an IMDb poster, as to the show's content -

    I was 7 at the time, and I loved it too! :wub:
