John Carradine shot this low budget independent circa 1966 in Florida, the first feature film for director Bob Clark (later of "A Christmas Story," "Porky's," "Black Christmas," Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things," Deathdream" and "Murder by Decree," among others). The one written piece on the movie can be found in Tom Weaver's book "John Carradine: The Films," which recounts the tale of how the star convinced the director to change the jester's name from Cuddle-Poo to Quat. (what, Quat? come, Quat!) An amusing anecdote for a film that may never see the light of day now that Clark himself has passed on. Among the cast members is the pop group Spanky and Our Gang though I'm not sure what they could have added. Here's hoping that Carradine fans will someday get a chance for viewing.
