Dukes Review: Along Came a Duke
FEATURE INTERVIEW WITH ACTOR CHRIS HENSEL!
K&F Show Summary:
In this episode of K&F our show review is just a little bit different. Actually, it’s a lot of bit different. Today we did review the episode some…but left the feature of the discussion to our interview with actor Chris Hensel, Mr. “Jeb Stuart Duke” himself! That’s right – we interviewed an actual actor from the Dukes of Hazzard!
Chris is an accomplished actor today, but did you know that the Dukes was his very first TV appearance? Even more meaty….did you know that the role of Jeb Stuart Duke was planned to be permanent? His initial contract for the role was for a 7-year run! Seriously. Chris was very open in sharing what his experience was like filming the episode and gave details on people, places, and locations that you’ll love to hear. He even gave details on the “flying cross” double jump stunt between his dirt bike and the General Lee! Today Chris is in the midst of launching another new project you’ll want to hear about called Salvage Yard “Shine Boys.”

Season 3 – Episode 16: “Along Came a Duke”
Written by Len Kaufman
Directed by Paul Baxley
Original Airdate: 2/13/1981
Corndog’s Insider Dukes of Hazzard Episode Specific Nerd Trivia:
6:57 – After the Duke boys come to the rescue of the Curator of the Atlanta Museum, and he drives off… Bo and Luke walk back towards the General and you can see the left front fender is missing it’s ’68 side marker light, leaving only a hole.
15:11 – When Bo and Luke are heading to Atlanta and they show the skyline, this is indeed Atlanta’s skyline… but the footage was from S1 E2 “Daisy’s Song”.
15:35 – When Bo and Luke are leaving the Atlanta Museum with the sword, we clearly see them getting into the armored truck… and two other guys are driving the General Lee. But at 16:36, on the trip back to Hazzard, the camera cuts to the interior of the General Lee… and now Bo and Luke are driving the General.
27:20 – When Bo and Luke are in jail, and they take Cletus’ keys, the brass tag says “7552” and the keys are actual Chrysler keys. This was a common key tag used by Warner Brothers. Being that the cars were built by the Veluzets during this time… it is possible that they used the same style brass tags. My best guess is that “7552” would have been the last four digits of the VIN. These tags were not used during the 2005 movie… but were still being used during the 1997 and 2000 Reunion movies. Luckily, I still have the original for my car, but it is not labeled the same way.
32:15 – Cooter is under the hood of the dressed up close-up General Lee. Notice the blue upper radiator hose, chrome hood hinges, chrome latch tray, etc.
40:17 – When Bo, Luke, and Jeb run out of the courthouse to chase the bad guys, you may notice that they pull off their typical routine perfectly. Luke gets in the car first, cranks it up, and has his hand on the shifter ready to go. As Bo is climbing in, Luke is saying “hit it, hit it, hit it!”. As soon as Bo gets through the window, his foot hits the gas, and Luke slams it into gear.
46:58 – This is such a mess of a shot… I guess they played it off well enough so that the director didn’t feel the need to reshoot it. After the bad guys have wrecked their car… Bo and Luke climb out of the General Lee. Luke jumps down the embankment and lands behind the bad guy’s car. If you listen carefully and pay close attention to the shadow on the back of the car, you can clearly tell that Bo slipped and tumbled down the embankment. You can even see him come into the shot laying down behind the car. By this point, Luke has the door open and is dragging one of the bad guys out of the car. Also at the same time, Jeb rides the dirt bike down the hill and crashes it at the bottom. Luke looks up, doesn’t see Bo, then looks over to the director (I assume), then directly at the camera… finally Bo comes around the car and Luke says “You okay?”
Corndog Show Rating: 7 Dogs
Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200
1. Get Diet Coke to Sponsor us….or just Kibbe. FAILED 2. Be characters in the Disney/Pixar movie, Cars 3. Finnegan is the General. Kibbe…is wishing he was the General. FAILED.
3. Syndicate the show onto TV and radio, having awesome guests in studio, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on regularly to be our best friend.
4. Get John Schneider himself on the show with us. Pray to God he actually likes us and isn’t freaked out. NOV 2017: THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN!
5. Blow up the podcast so that it becomes a regular weekly show, interviewing celebrities, and actually providing a living for us capable of allowing us to race cars anytime we want plus let our wives get the shoes they like.
6. Get our own studio.
7. We each get a General Lee (real car – not a toy).
Kibbe has one!
8. Get a Voiceover Guy to announce the segments.
9. Jump a car together. Kibbe wants to go 30-feet vertical.
10. Make a Dream GL that is based off of a 1973 NASCAR Charger (like the 1/16th scale AMT model)
11. Kibbe needs a new wallet to replace his “George Costanza”.
Mike to get a new truck for legit towing. DONE!
