San Diego State College student Tascher stands looking down at Cadman in his sleeping bag during filming of the student parody of "Beau Geste." It was filmed at the same location as the Paramount Studios movie, on the abandoned Fort Zinderneuf set in the desert near Yuma. (The exact location is an archeological dig and may not be disclosed.) The actors and crew slept on the set.
