A Leap in Time

For a brief moment Sunday afternoon, it was 1978 all over again, as stuntman Corey Eubanks sailed 133 feet across the front of Seney Hall at Oxford College in a “General Lee” 1969 Dodge Charger. The jump was a re-enactment of the origi- nal jump featured in the opening credits of the “The Dukes of Hazzard” television show. The original jump took place on Nov. 11, 1978, and the car flew 81 feet. The stunt was being filmed as part of an episode of MTV’s “Your Movie Show,” which will focus on the origins of “The Dukes of Hazzard” July 27 during primetime. The MTV crew also spent time on the Square in Covington this weekend, filming interviews with locals who were here during filming of the original television show. Photo by Colin M.
