An Original Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10 1/4" [20 x 26 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

The Duke Steps Out, the 1929 James Cruze college boxing sports romantic comedy ("It's a knock-out!"; "Story by Lucian Cary"; about a millionaire's son who is a talented boxer, and he is on his way to becoming champion when he happens to see a beautiful college co-ed, and on an impulse, he enrolls in college so that he can romance her; it is not until the climax of the movie, when he is fighting for the championship and Crawford is listening to the fight on the radio that she finally realizes her boyfriend is the champ) starring William Haines (in the title role as Duke), Joan Crawford, Karl Dane, Tenen Holtz, Edward J. Nugent, and Jack Roper. Note that this is a "lost" film which means that no surviving copies are thought to exist (but the soundtrack discs have survived). Also note that Karl Dane and George K. Arthur appeared in two of the same movies in the mid-1920s, and then in 1927, MGM paired the huge Dane with the diminutive Arthur as a comedy team in 1927's "Rookies", and they were a huge hit, and over the next four years, they appeared in a total of 17 comedies as a Laurel & Hardy-like slapstick comedy team. But Dane had a very thick accent, and he could not make the transition to sound movies, and he had a few bit parts given to him by friends, but by 1934, he was washed up, and he bought a hot dog cart which he displayed outside of the MGM gates! Apparently, he reasonably found this extremely depressing, and he soon committed suicide. The following year, Arthur retired from movies and became a Broadway producer among other careers, and he lived until 1985, when he was 86 years old!
