Jim Dukas Memorial Night
We remembered our beloved member Jim Dukas at his memorial tribute on January 9, 2009. Jim was a dedicated member of the Sons for over 40 years, and was also a lifetime member of The Players. His dedication to the preservation of the films of Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy was unsurpassed.
An actor by profession, Jim did voice-overs for commercials, appeared in some on-screen roles, and played character roles in such movies as The Amityville Horror, Ironweed, The Super Cops, The Detective, Coogan's Bluff, and many others. He was the voice of 1010 WINS: "You give us 22 minutes — we'll give YOU the world!"
