A nice pose of Tom Wopat and John Schneider as their TV alter-egos, Bo and Luke Duke from the popular television series, The Dukes of Hazzard. Bo, Luke and Daisy (Catherine Bach) were raised by and lived with their Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle). The boys were on probation having be arrested for running moonshine. Their arch nemesis, corrupt county commission, Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) was always trying to come up with a scheme to make money and it usually always ended up involving the Dukes, whether it was intended to or not. Hogg hated the Duke boys as they always managed to mess up his schemes. He was always hoping they would break probation so they would be sent back to jail and out of his hair once and for all.
As popular as Schneider and Wopat were, both being catapulted to teen idol status, I don’t recall seeing too many posters of either of these guys. I think Schneider might have at least one solo pose out there, but I can’t recall any for Wopat. Catherine Bach has a least one pose of her as her alter-ego Daisy. It seems as though all of the poses aren’t that easy to find as you don’t seem them offered on Ebay that often.
I believe this poster is published by Western Graphics (I think the same company also released Bach’s solo pose) and while I am not sure of the year, I am thinking it is from the 1980s.
As a side note, contract disputes caused Schneider and Wopat to leave the series and they were replaced by their “look-alike” cousins, Coy (Byron Cherry) and Vance (Chris Mayer).
This new Duke duo lasted for 19 episodes before John and Tom returned to their roles as Bo and Luke. I have seen a poster of Coy and Vance on Ebay and the seller stated that the poster is very rare, I can believe that. I am not sure if it ever made it into the stores or was just a promo type poster.
