Log In

Duke of West Point, The (1938)

US $9.98

Louis Hayward plays an arrogant Cambridge student who emigrates to America and enrolls at the West Point. Hayward's superior attitude earns him the enmity of his fellow students and the derisive nickname "the Duke". Those viewers familiar with college pictures will know as early as the opening titles that Hayward is down deep a swell guy. He proves this by helping impoverished plebe Richard Carlson pay his college costs and winning a crucial hockey game against a Canadian team. While Hayward and his student companions all look a bit long in tooth to be West Pointers, 20-year-old leading lady Joan Fontaine fits right in to the predictable proceedings. Like most of producer Edward Small's films, Duke of West Point was a perennial attraction on TV's "Late Late Shows" in the 1950s. The vintage hockey scenes are excellent as are the football practice scenes.

DVD NOTES: All-Region disc will play in DVD players around the world. This is the original full-length version which is very hard to find and it runs 109 mins total! The video is very clear, amazing for being from 1938. The audio is excellent throughout most of the film, with some occasional fuzziness in certain parts, very expected for a film this old.
