While searching for information on producer-director Luke Moberly's obscure sophomore follow-up to LITTLE LAURA & BIG JOHN (1973) -- another 1920's period piece titled SWEET TALKER (a.k.a. CLAY TEETER and DEVIL IN THE SKY), from '74 -- we came across this article about Moberly's third production, which we're assuming never got made.
UPDATE: Longtime T.O.S. contributor John Donaldson has provided more info about Mr. Moberly's "Skunk Ape" project. The following article appeared 6 years later in the Lakeland Ledger (Aug 25, 1981, page 1C-2C).
