    Happy Birthday, General Lee

    I've never had a chance to see the HD versions, but we did discuss them several years ago when CMT started showing them - see here. That discussion included criticism of the cropping and also the differently applied lighting effects. I assume that the Amazon versions haven't been edited for timing reasons. I think I'll be sticking to my DVDs for the time being.

    Valencia Oaks Movie Ranch

    Hello, I wanted to add a few details that I thought any fan of the Dukes would find fascinating. I worked on the Dukes Ranch in the summer of 1993. I had just graduated from film school, and got a job on film starring Corey Eubanks called: "Forced to Kill (somewhere I have the call sheet) the day we did 2nd unit shots on the Dukes Ranch in Valencia. I was the first AD for this shoot day. I had gone to film school at Cal Arts literally 1/2 mile away from the Dukes Ranch and never knew it was there until I was working on Corey's film. Had I had known about the Dukes Ranch back when in 1989 when I started going to Cal Arts I would have been able to see all the General Lees that sat out in the field outside of the famous motor pool. By the time I was working on the Ranch I was blown away as all the Dukes sets were still standing. I went all through the practical Duke Farm House, the barn, The Boar's Nest, and the motor pool cement slab, that was covered by an aluminum roof was still there. Out side in the weeds was one Hazzard County Sherriff's squad car and Boss Hogg's famous white convertable Caddalac. I couldn't believe it as it was being destroyed by the weather. I also found a General Push Bar lying behind another impressive set that was built for the film "Nothing But Trouble." It was the huge mansion facade built for the film. If you watch the film "Forced to Kill" the end scene where Michael Ironside's 4x4 blows up was shot directly in front of the Boar's Nest. I can't remember if you see the set in the film or not. However, when I went inside the Boar's Nest building it was a practical set in that you could use it for interiors and exteriors. On the far left side there were a ton of Hazzard set decoration crammed inside. A bunch of full color billboards from the show, I remember a Lulu Hogg bilboard and a Boss Hogg one. There were several other though I can't remember the details. I was aware the Warner Brothers had an archives department and figurred they were storing these there for safe keeping. These were days way before the digital camera, so even though I did not have my 35mm with me, I did not take any photos. As I was the 1st AD I could have photographed anything I wanted to, but the film's set photographer was there, his name was Greg Leon. He did shoot lots of images of the Dukes Ranch that day. I have tried to contact him a few times since but he didn't seem motivated to pull the slides out of storage. Years later, I heard the Dukes Ranch was sold for development and I always wondered what happened to the billboards I mentioned and Boss' Cady, and the Hazzard police car. I hope they were saved. I had already acquiered many original Hazzard props and used to tell Corey Eubanks about them during the film shoot. He did share many Dukes stories with me that day on the Ranch as he knew I was fan of the show. Some, I dont think would veer be able to be told publically. I did one more movie with Corey a year later and then we lost touch. But he was a great guy and he has gone on to even more fame with Dukes fans as I saw his wonderful jumps he did for Dukes Fest. One thing I will always remember was how loyal Corey was to his fellow Dukes Stunt team as he had hired many of them on these two films that I worked on of his. I got a ton of stories out of Alan Wyatt Jr. and other members of the Duke's `stunt team. As a documentary film maker myself and a film archivist I would hope to be able to share my first hand experiences and stories with the fans of Dukes of Hazzard with my time working on the Dukes Ranch and the artifacts I have come across from the show. I have parted with many over the years, but I still have a few, and will always have these memories. Long Live The Dukes of Hazzard!!!! If anyone is ever interested in making a Dukes documentary I would be happy to share what I have learned about this special show.

    Welcome to HNet, GigGuy. In all seven seasons, 'Mary Kaye's Baby' (S01E03) is the only episode in which the General doesn't appear. I guess the people making the show had no idea by the third episode that the General would become so iconic, and end up being at least as famous as the stars of the show. Many shows in the '70s and '80s were based around a vehicle, e.g. KITT in 'Knight Rider', the Coyote X in 'Hardcastle and McCormick' etc., but early episodes of Dukes weren't like that. The show's formula wasn't really established until filming was moved to California for episode 6, and maybe even as late as the start of season 2.

    We use both of those expressions over here. I read that he'd died last week, but with the fires in Australia, impeachment hearings in the US and Harry & Meghan stepping back from their royal duties in the UK (and an election being called in Ireland), I don't think it grabbed many headlines. There's a short BBC article below: 'First Middle-earth scholar' Christopher Tolkien dies

    Since the wife didn't approve the money for the Dixie Jeep I'll be chasing him on Miz Tizdale's dirt bike (even though mine looks a little different than Emma's)

    We definitely got enough snow to shovel today but I'm putting it off until tomorrow. It's the light fluffy kind so it shouldn't be too bad. My driveway is 150 feet long and I shovel it by hand. I'm old school!

    Shucks. You were right Hobie. She said no. Just wait until she asks for 65 grand to get her nails done. I'll get my revenge. It'll be a no from me.

    CB antenna in Daisy's jeep?

    I had a look through my reference pictures that I used for my FanArt version of Daisy's Jeep, but nothing shows the antenna clearly. Then I turned to the internet and found this updated version of Daisy's Jeep for sale (sorry, no antenna): There's a brief description below, with more info an pics at www.doetschmotorsports.com. It's $65,000 BTW. This is a 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL 4x4 Custom "Daisy Duke Dixie Edition”, built by renowned Jeep builders, Doetsch Off-Road of Scottsdale Arizona. With only 128 actual miles and powered by a 2.0-liter I4 turbo engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission, this Jeep features custom retro graphics that take you right back to the original Hazzard County Daisy Duke Jeep - including the iconic Golden Eagle and “Dixie Daisy” hood graphics.

    Mission Impossible

    I’m now currently going through the original (1966-1973) spy TV series Mission Impossible. The episode I’m watching now (“Shock” 1967) guest-starred ‘Boss Hogg’ aka Sorrell Booke! He was a bad guy in this episode, too...but a little more deadly than ol’ J.D. was. Here’s a pic from the episode:

    100 in 2020

    Today is January 11 which means that 4 months from now will mark 100 years that a cute little baby named Jesse Duke came into the world, born in the Duke farmhouse in Hazzard County Georgia. (historically correct in my mind at least)

    Nice picture. Thanks for posting it. Although I did have trouble telling if it was an old picture of Boss or Abraham Lincoln Hogg.

    Rick mainly filled in while Sonny was making Dukes spin-off 'Enos', so although they both appeared in many episodes, not many overlap. Here's my quick list: 'Money to Burn' 'The Rustlers' 'Enos Strate to the Top' 'Uncle Boss' 'The New Dukes' 'Dukes Strike it Rich' 'Lawman of the Year' 'Coy Meets Girl' 'Big Daddy' And both the TV movies: 'The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!' 'The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood' Sonny is in the credits of 'The Meeting' and 'Road Pirates', but does not appear in the episodes. Rick's first couple of appearances were as 'Cousin Cletus' rather than as a deputy.

    I’ll be sticking with my DVDs, too! Not everything is meant for, or looks best in, HD. Lots think because it’s “HD” it’s automatically the best picture & color quality ever...and that’s not always the case. With current shows being made that might be the best...but older shows sometimes still look better in the form they were originally made & filmed.

    Widow Baxley is mentioned in 'The Rustlers' in season 2. There's also The Famous Flying Baxley Sisters in 'Coy vs. Vance'. I think it's likely that both were a nod to the Baxley family. As well as Paul Baxley working on the show, there was also his son, Craig R. Baxley, and nephew, Gary Baxley. You may be interested in Roger's 'Real Stuff in Hazzard' thread where the Baxley Sisters get a mention.

    +1 ! Right on! Although I have gray hair with my brown and a white beard, when my wife said something about dying it, my mother said, " Oh no you don't" . I had to agree...like everything else in my life, I worked hard and got them through tons of stress!! ( So, since I earned them, I think i'll keep them! )

    I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment but..........This is fantastic! A new Chase Elliott fan. Chase's father was mentioned on the episode "Undercover Dukes" so every Dukes fan should be a Chase Elliott fan.....and he's a Georgia boy just like Bo and Luke. Chase will be around a long time so you picked the right guy. It's so good to hear from you cuz!

    I figured it’d been discussed before ...there’s just so much on this site that it’s sometimes hard to know exactly where everything might be at—which is actually a good thing, in itself! Very weird that they’d have the junkyard guy even say the line “68 Coupe”...when everyone knows the General is a 69...why didn’t Tom Wopat catch it when directing?? Very strange blooper...but still awesome episode nonetheless!

    Howdy From Hazzard. Let me see if I can sort it out. Well, from what I can recall, all four members of the Duke family have suffered head injuries sustained with loss of consciousness. The first one to get it was Daisy in Officer Daisy Duke when she is sucker punched by the female prisoner. Following that, Bo is knocked out by the two silver thieves in the Hazzardville Horror. Then in My Son Bo Hogg, Bo first hits his head on a rock and then at the end, he hits his head against the door of the van while trying to fight Luke. The next injury is the serious injury Uncle Jesse sustains when he slips, falls down a steep hill, and hits his head on a rock which puts him in a deep coma in the 2 hour 10 Million Dollar Sheriff. Next in Goodbye General Lee, the first of Luke's head injuries (and apparently a serious one to have him rushed to the hospital, is when the drive shaft hits him. Jesse's other severe head injury was the one that blinded him in Witness Jesse Duke. In Farewell Hazzard, Daisy hits her head on a rock and temporarily loses consciousness. In Lulu's Gone Away, Bo is knocked unconscious and is out like a light for a while thanks to Lulu's kidnappers. Luke sustained most of his head injuries in the 6th season. The most serious one of all was in Brotherly Love. Luke was knocked out by the twin sisters in Twin Trouble, Coogan's partner in The Ransom of Hazzard County, and the hijackers in Cooter's Confession. All of these were temporary and Luke woke back up again. As for mental control, both Luke and Daisy were hypnotized by Professor Crandall while the amnesiac Bo was merely brainwashed by Boss and Rosco. Although they are not considered truly part of the show, but merely replacements, Vance Duke received conscious losing head injuries in The Great Insurance Fraud, temporarily in Return of the Mean Green Machine, and finally in Coy VS Vance. So that means that Coy Duke was the only Duke who never suffered Cranial damage. Hope this helps Will Rodgers The Voice Man

    Sorry guys. I've been very sick. My Hashimoto's has been flaring (mostly due to job stress) and I've been sleeping about 16 hours a day. Very little energy for anything other than working. I appreciate all of you keeping this place going. I'm in the process of looking for another job because I can't keep going on like this.
