'The Duke - Pilot' aka 'Up Against The Odds' on VHS videotape.

Two Legendary Chicago Radio and TV Personalities appear in 'The Duke'; Eddie Hubbard and the late Jack Brickhouse. Jack Brickhouse appeared interviewing Ernie Terrell and Jack was the play by play voice of MLB Chicago Cubs for over 30 years before retiring from WGN TV. Eddie Hubbard is Robert Conrad's stepfather and appeared in the film as the Ring Announcer. Eddie's career in Radio and TV spans 60 years, best known with WIND, WGN, FM-100 and WJJD in Chicago spanning a four decade broadcast career in the Windy City. Eddie moved to Dallas to host a nationwide syndicated satellite show with ABC Radio's Stardust Network and continues to broadcast a Sunday show from a Dallas radio station & syndicated on many stations throughout the US. The Duke was retitled 'Up Against The Odds' on VHS (try eBay). Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications, set to open in 2007 has a copy of the VHS release on file.
