THE DUKE OF WEST POINT (CLASSICFLIX SILVER SERIES #13 / 1938) (DVD)

With duty, honor, tradition, and a little romance thrown in for good measure, ClassicFlix is pleased to present the DVD debut of The Duke of West Point (1938).

After an impressive showing on and off the field while attending Cambridge, Steve Early (Louis Hayward), the son of an American military attache in London, dutifully accepts a commission to attend West Point where five previous generations of Early’s have made their mark. Soon after arriving at the Academy, Steve’s confidence and manner earns him the derisive nickname "The Duke", so dubbed by his classmates who view the plebe as arrogant and entitled.

Not to be deterred, Steve devotes himself to his studies and athletics, while budgeting time for Ann Porter (Joan Fontaine), who's become the object of his affection despite the presence of a cadet rival (Alan Curtis). All appears to be going well for Steve until he violates the honor code in order to secretly help a financially struggling fellow plebe stay at "The Point" -- an untold good deed which results in his being shunned by the rest of his class.

Directed by Alfred E. Green, The Duke of West Point was independently produced by Edward Small, a prolific filmmaker who would later supervise such classics as The Man in the Iron Mask (1939) and The Son of Monte Cristo (1940) - both of which star Louis Hayward.

Duke also features solid early acting showcases by Joan Fontaine and Richard Carlson, and also features Tom Brown, Jonathan Hale, Charles D. Brown, Jed Prouty, Marjorie Gateson, Emma Dunn, Don "Red" Barry and James Flavin.
