The Duke boys, a pair of 'Robin Hood' types complete with flaming bows and arrows, are fighting the system and are assisted in their adventures by their car, an orange 1969 Dodge Charger named General Lee. The Dukes of Hazzard is set in Georgia, and the show's southern influence is felt throughout. Hazzard County, USA. A little corner of the world where everyone knows everyone else, and people are never too busy to stop and say howdy. Shoot, some folks even say this is where the apple pie was invented. Yep, basically, everything down here moves a little bit slower. Unless, of course, your last name is... DUKE.
James Best, the actor best known for his portrayal of bumbling yet endearing Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on TV’s “The Dukes of Hazzard,” died at 9:28 p.m. Monday April 6th after a brief illness and complications of pneumonia. He was 88.. Jimmie watched over the cast like a father figure to insure that everything that was done was correct and fair. His talent as an actor, director and artist made him a singular sensation - and the love and humor he shared with us all will remain unsurpassed.
