Vernon Duke, Head of Security
The safe passage of Hollywood's stars, as well as studio employees, through Sunrise Studios is the sole responsibility of Mr. Vernon Duke, a former secret service agent for President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, and civil rights activist Martin Luther King. As head of Sunrise Security, Mr. Duke supervises a vast surveillance and central electronic locking system, one of the most sophisticated in the Griffith Park area. As a result, there is nothing that happens at Sunrise that is not witnessed by Mr. Duke's watchful eye. Vernon plans to retire next year for cataract surgery. Good luck Vernon!
