Enter a free text date.
Students from San Diego State and other actors stand with rifles atop the abandoned Paramount Studios' Fort Zinderneuf set near Yuma, where a parody of "Beau Geste" was filmed. Bending over without a shirt is Bill Indseth, Nord Whited facing the camera, Bill Tascher in profile, and Vernon Stiers with the motion-picture camera (not visible) atop a tripod. (The exact location is an archeological dig and may not be disclosed.)
