    Thank you for this upload! I’m a big Marc Alaimo fan and even though he’s in this for a split second, it was still great to see this back online. What’s odd to me is that Alaimo is an avid rider, but never sets foot near a bike in the whole movie! Too bad!

    WOW! What a joy this is to find it on line. Don Hulette, may he Rest In Peace, would have loved to have seen this. I did hair, make-up and wardrobe on this little film. Great memories. What a time, what a time it was.
