Duke(II)' is listed 2nd in the opening credits (above the title) but not mentioned in the comprehensive cast list. IMDb's policy for such a case is to list the opening credits first and fill in the rest with the comprehensive list. See more »
An early Wayne western. Very entertaining and just plain fun! Wayne plays John Mason. He receives a letter prompting him to return and claim his half of a gold mine called the "Sally Anne". When Wayne returns he finds a girl imagine that! She by chance had also received a letter.
He then finds himself taking on some bandits in a haunted mine with a crazy catacomb of tunnels, under a ghost town, complete with creepy shadows, trap doors, secret passages & even organ music. As stated above it's just a fun who-dun-it. A weird kind of mix of mystery meets western. To the best of my recollection this had never been done prior to this movie ... and even if it had it was still a bit refreshing for me.
