Status: Lost

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.[1]

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.
