Producer H. Billy Miller acts the villain with an unidentified actor in his and Bob Wade's parody of "Beau Geste." This segment was filmed at the Indian Pueblo or Village in San Diego's Balboa Park, one of three sites used. Wade, Miller and other actors were members of the Sigma Lambda fraternity, which sponsored three showings on the San Diego State College campus where they were students. The buildings at this site were razed in 1946.
