The Skydivers (1963) (part 1 of 7)

The Cast of Characters:
Kevin Casey as Beth RoweBeth Rowe (Kevin Casey). Runs a sport parachuting business with her husband. An extremely hard worker and the only likable female to ever inhabit a Coleman Francis movie. Naturally, she manages to get scarred for life by the end of the film.
Tony Cardoza as Harry RoweHarry Rowe (Tony Cardoza). Beth’s business partner, and philandering husband. A pilot and a skydiver, though how a man this bland could crave any type of excitement is beyond me.
Eric Tomlin as Joe MossJoe Moss (Eric Tomlin). Coffee-drinking Joe is Harry’s best friend, and a plane mechanic. He does his best to fix Beth’s broken heart, too, if you get what I’m saying. What a guy.
Marcia Knight as Suzy BelmontSuzy Belmont (Marcia Knight). The town harpy. Her siren song has ensnared many a man, Harry included. When not seducing men to their doom, she figures out elaborate ways to just plain kill them.
Titus Moede as FrankieFrankie (Titus Moede). Harry’s drunk ex-mechanic. He thinks Suzy is in love with him, and therefore willingly does anything she asks.

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
