MCM Actor Spotlight: Harland "Hap" Kearney

This month, we're looking at the films (and life) of Harlan "Hap" Kearney - from his first film - a bit part as a sailor in Joey Levitch's "The Not-zi" - through his legendary bar fights in the dives of Hollywood - to the end of his career doing extra work on non-union horror films.

Closer to the height of his popularity was the 1976 film "Swine" in which Hap plays Troy, a man stuck in a bunker after the Swine Flu epidemic transforms the world's population into pig-man-beasts.

Hap passed away in 1979 after a high-wire fall during the live finale of MBS' Circus Of The Stars.

The Gastronaut starring Joey Levitch
I suppose if I had to pick one movie from the Manka Bros. library I would choose "The Gastronaut" (1981) starring Joey Levitch. I wasn't even close to being born when it came out but my mom used to watch it on cable. It's not really very funny. In fact, it's pretty pathetic. But the story is a universal tale of one man's ability to overcome obstacles. He's an astronaut that has a really bad farting problem but he still manages to go into space (for whatever reason). Because of his gas, he actually ends up helping save the mission (though I'm not sure how).
