Bill Tascher and Nord Whited in "Beau Geste," 1939
Enter a free text date.
Tascher partially kneels and Whited stands as they aim their rifles on the set of the San Diego State College student parody of "Beau Geste." It was filmed at the same location as the Paramount Studios' movie, on the abandoned set in the desert near Yuma. (The exact location is an archeological dig and may not be disclosed.) Tascher's fraternity Sigma Lambda sponsored the film's showing at the college.
