Enter a free text date.
San Diego State student Stiers focuses a camera as he films Bob Wade's and H. Billy Miller's parody of "Beau Geste." It was filmed at the same location as the Paramount Studios' movie, on the abandoned set near Yuma. (The exact location is an archeological dig and may not be disclosed.) The men's fraternity, Sigma Lambda, sponsored three showings of the film at the college.
