San Diego State College student Tascher is on the right. The actor on the left may be Vernon Rivers. This portion of the film was shot at the Indian Village (or Pueblo) at San Diego's Balboa Park, one of three sites used. Part of it can be seen in the background. The film was sponsored by Sigma Lambda to be shown at San Diego State College, only three times, since Paramount Studios objected to the parody.
