Tascher walks on the abandoned Paramount Studios' Fort Zinderneuf set where San Diego State students Bob Wade and H. Billy Miller produced a parody of "Beau Geste." The movie was sponsored by fraternity Sigma Lambda for the purpose of showing it at San Diego State College just three times. (The exact location is an archeological dig and may not be disclosed.)
