I was in this movie.
16 October 2004 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I'm glad someone at least got to see this film. I was in it as one of the KKK marching band that followed the clan leader (Dal Jenkins) around. I was a member of a popular regional rock and roll band based out of Champaign Illinois. A friend turned us on to the director as he thought we would be perfect for the band parts. Ivan Nagy, the director let us audition in his motel room and loved us. We were on the road gigging when the flick was premiered in Champaign and never got to see the film. All the principals split for the coast and I have been trying to obtain a copy in any format, Sanskrit, Swahili, VHS or whatever. Any help in that direction? Thanks. One of the hooded guys in the movie.
