About me:.. .. .... ....
The HOUSTON WORLDFEST AWARD for FIRST FEATURE goes to THE DUKES and Robert Davi, director!
Quote from VARIETY: "Vet character actor Robert Davi neatly balances humor and heart while smoothly moving to a doo-wop beat in "The Dukes," his engaging debut effort as a feature helmer. Pic is a low-key charmer about members of a '50s vocal group who, nearly five decades after their fleeting heyday, contemplate crime to fund a long-sought comeback. With Davi and Chazz Palminteri fronting a first-rate ensemble cast, and a tasty soundtrack of golden oldies, this unpretentious indie dramedy has much to recommend." MORE...

The Dukes, (Chazz Palminteri and Robert Davi) a doo wop group who at 22 were on top of the world, find themselves struggling for survival in 2007. Their manager (Peter Bogdanovich) is desperately trying to get them work but is met with failure at each turn. Finally pushed to the extreme, they pull a heist only a fool would attempt, which leaves them even more desperate. When all seems lost, they find themselves.
