Russ Marker was a regional filmmaker and actor in Texas who made his film debut as Col. Curtis in Edgar Ulmer’s 1960 science fiction film Beyond the Time Barrier starring Robert Clarke.  He produced, directed, and scripted the obscure 1963 sci-fi film The Yesterday Machine starring Tim Holt, about a Nazi scientist who invents a time machine to travel back to World War II to change the outcome.  Marker also co-wrote and directed the unfinished early 1960s horror film Demon from Devil’s Lake.  It was remade several years later starring John Agar under the title Night Fright (aka E.T.N.: The Extraterrestrial Nastie) (1968), and featured Marker in a small role.

He was born Hirom Monroe Kennamer in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, on October 11, 1926.  He was featured in small roles in the films Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and Finding North (1998).  He was also seen in various roles in several episodes of the television series Walker, »
