Brute Marlboro, the nonpareil he-man hero of the screen, quick-draw expert and all-time box office favorite; playing a lead role in the grand climax of the takeover plan.
Bobby Luce, a child actor, who, with a perceptiveness far beyond his tender years, places Jack Albany as Number One in his pantheon of great actors; in the ultimate crunch, Bobby lowers the boom.
Mort Barrymore, a wicked stage manager.
Captain Melvin, a jet pilot who doubles in the composition of a politically-oriented graffiti for the walls of a subway station latrines.
