Mondo Trivia: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

I meant to mention this before, but it slipped my mind.  Fortunately, it slipped back in and here we go.

Before the late David R. Ellis was Directing stuff like Final Destination and Snakes on a Plane, he was a Stunt Coordinator in the 70s and 80s.

That includes the 1978 Invasion of the Body Snatchers...
As a bonus, note that the also-late Jerry Garcia is Credited for playing the Banjo in the bit with the Street Performer (who later become a man-dog).

Just to keep this long-time rumor dead, he did NOT play the Performer that appears, just the Music that was added in Post-Production.

All clear now?  Good.
