Picked up a VHS, "Gus" for 75¢ on a garage sale

Don Knotts, of course.
Elenora Poultice shows up as an extra as well.

About an hour in, the airport scene where the hero 'leaves' for home in Yugoslavia. 
Among the on-lookers is Henry Slate (Bobby Fleet I)

A later scene is a press conference.  At the end of the press conference Mr. Schwump walks across the screen, in front of the action.  He is taking notes as if he were a reporter.  He walks from left to right, then off screen.  The camera pans with 'Schwump' from left to right as he crosses over just before the camera picks up the Harold Gould character who crosses from right to left.  But, of course, "Schwamp" has no lines, and is not credited.

I'm tell ya, someone in Hollyweird KNOWS this guy.

This movie as a plethora of 70's actors and football players:

     Edward Asner
     Don Knotts
     Tim Conway
     Dick Van Patten
     Bob Crane  (from Hogan's Heroses)
     Johnny Unitas
     Dick Butkus
     Tom Bosley  (Mr. Cunningham of HD)
     Richard Kiel  (the giant)

Who is Peter Paul Eastman in the credits as a reporter? In IMDB, it says he is in quite a few movies (some with Don Knotts) playing an extra.

That's big news, Pierre. I think the only movie we've definitely tied him to was, Christmas In Connecticut. Any chance of a screen capture?

Not a chance on the screen cap, I haven't the technology.  Some day, though... some day.  VHS to computer is a tough row to hoe.

He's probably in one of two or three press conference scenes.  The aforementioned one and one earlier in the show.  There could have been a third.  Guess'n I'll have to watch it again.

I also suspect, there are other TAGS alumna I haven't ID'd yet.

Surprisingly, Knotts doesn't have a lot of face time on the movie.  It centers mostly around the main character, Andy Petrovich (Gary Grimes) and Gus the mule.  Tim Conway gets a lot of face time, though, as he tries to keep Gus off the playing field.



>edit<  He's listed on IMDB as Man In The Airport.  There's a couple airport scenes.  Probably the one later in the movie with Henry Slate (Bobby Fleet I).  At the later scene, people are asking Andy about the Superbowl game.  To some they could appear to be reporters, but I took it that they were fans who happened to recognize him.

Haven't seen "Gus" since I was a kid. I remember Bob Crane as the "ol Pepper Pod".

Crane got his start in show business as a radio personality.  I wonder if he injected some of the Real Bob Crane into 'The Old Pepper Pod" character.
Right?
Right!

I seem to recall, as a kid, parroting that line.  "Right?  Right!"  Must have gotten it from Gus.

Since you have the DVD, PG, can you get us a screen cap?

PS: Nice to see you back on a regular basis.

What did Calvin Coolidge

I've been watching a lot of Twilight Zone lately and it seemed like a TAGS actor was popping up in every episode.

James Best in the The Grave as Johnny Rob
Ron Howard in Walking Distance as The Wilcox Boy
William Keene in The Midnight Sun as Doctor
Joseph Hamilton in Mirror Image as the Ticket Agent

I was particularly proud of identifying Joseph Hamilton because I pretty much did it by voice. 

I would post screen caps but not on my own personal computer so don't feel like getting into it but all of these episodes are on You Tube

It's about an hour in.  I believe it's after the air port scene when Andy is intending to LEAVE L.A. for Yugoslavia.
