Howdy Manco!!

Vera Ralston was a Czech born person, who was originally a ice figure skater. She moved to the U.S.A. and signed a contract with Republic studios in 1943. She appeared in 26 films during her short career,1943-1958, like Dakota, The Fighting Kentuckian with John Wayne, I, Jane Doe and Fair Wind To Java. Her career was limited due to her speaking little English, so she married the head of the studio, Herbert Yates. Yates was later sued for using company assets to promote his wife. Yates died shortly thereafter and left her his 10 million dollar estate.So, there are other ways to get to the top in Hollywood!!

Joe Higgins was an American character actor, popular beteen 1961-1987. He was usually typecast as a Sheriff, as on t.v. series, Sigmund And The Sea Monster and Green Acres. During the late 60's and early 70's, he became famous for playing yet again a Sheriff, in a series of Dodge auto commercials, in which he uttered the line" you in a heap of trouble, boy"!!

Monte Hellman is one of the directors mentored by Roger Corman. His most famous films to date, are the cult classic Two Lane Blacktop with Warren Oates and, The Shooting and Ride The Whirlwind with Jack Nicholson, both westerns produced by Jack Nicholson and filmed in 1965. He has also served as 2nd director and shot footage on Sergio Leones' A Fistful Of Dollars and Samuel Fuller's, The Big Red One. He was also executive producer for Quentin Tarantino's Resevoir Dogs.
