When there, Wayne’s heart is captured by the French general’s daughter. But a rich and powerful rival, Blake Randolph (John Howard), also has his heart set on her. As the two suitors lock horns, Wayne discovers his rival has a nefarious scheme up his sleeve, and soon the courtship battle escalates into a full-scale war. It’s “The Duke” at his best as the fighting Kentuckian battles for his love and the land of the free! The Fighting Kentuckian was released in September of 1949.
