  1. Frank Bonner was a member of that cast…It is interesting, to see him perform in a movie, called “Equinox”, that was made back in 1967…it is a very freaky, rag-tag sci-fi/horror film, about a demon who harasses a small group of college students…there is some good stop-motion sequences, and the low-rent movie actually was nominated for a few awards…Bonner’s big break came with WKRP, a decade later…I think he played the station advertising due, who wore loud plaid 70’s style outfits….maybe he had his own demons–he has been married five times!

  2. A little more…Bonner was using his real name in the credits–Frank Boers, Jr….I just watched this movie again, after 40 years or so!..It was so low-budget…much of the dialogue was dubbed in later…and it is weird, that even though this flick was made in the late 60s, the hairstyles and manner of dress were about 10 years behind the times!…but the stop-action scenes were still good, and drew praise from famous stop-motion people, like Ray Harryhausen.
