He attended Indiana State Teachers College for two years and later graduated from UCLA. ?He also worked on movies including “Escape to Witch Mountain,” “Halloween,” “Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip,” “Ghoulies,” “Runaway Train,” “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” “Sister, Sister,” “Coupe de Ville,” “Forever Young” and “Striking Distance.” He worked TV shows including “Little House on the Prairie,” “Hunter,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “Matt Houston,” “The A-Team,” “Unsolved Mysteries” and “The Wonder Years.” He also owned a sound recording rental business.

    He did sound for The Beast of Yucca Flats?
    So I’m going to assume he didn’t have a knack for it when he started.

    RIP Mr. Strosnider.

    @ #2: Bob Burns noted in the Ballyhoo documentary on Coleman Francis that, when you consider how inept the rest of the film was, the sound effects were handled in a surprisingly competent manner. IMDB also lists him as a camera operator and a film editor for Beast.

    Sampo, you forgot that he did cinematography for Skydivers.

    The interview that Ballyhoo did with him during the “Making of” feature for Beast of Yucca Flats was interesting. One of the things that did work well, Lee mentioned that Coleman had suggested that he open the gate to let as much light in the camera as possible to simulate the atomic bomb explosion flash.
