Damm picking a favorite Duke movie is like going to the Playboy Mansion for a party and only being allowed to pick one hottie.

Here goes.

Big Jake
Hondo
Harms Way

Also loved him in the 'The Longest Day" though it was not a staring role.

There was another movie where he was Navy flyer who broke his back....cannot remember the name
