Commando Cus (lost Bob Gale parody shorts; 1970s)
|Bob Gale, creator of the shorts, along with Commando Cody, the character who inspired them.|
Commando Cus was a series of short, amateur films made in the 1970's by Richard Rosenberg and his friend Bob Gale, co-writer and producer of the Back to the Future trilogy.
The shorts were shot on Super 8mm film, and they were parodies of the 1950's movie serial hero Commando Cody.
At least one was exhibited at MidAmeriCon, a science fiction convention in 1976, and Rosenberg has shown portions of another short at several amateur filmmaker meetings. They haven't been shown or mentioned otherwise.
