They appeared in Blackenstein ('73), which, as the title suggests, is a silly, low budget horror flick. This movie and the Fuhrman/O.J. links to these actors come from Solitairea1's discovery that the name of the Las Vegas man bludgeoned to death with a hammer and found in an alley in West L.A. was Robert C. Hurd Jr. Mark Fuhrman and Roberts investigated his murder in March, 1994. He was 74 years old. His nickname was "Uncle Dottie. "Fuhrman referred to him in Murder in Brentwood only as a retired Army master sergeant and the uncle of a black woman named Connie Law.
In Fuhrman's Murder in Greenwich movie, he changed the name of a woman involved in the real Martha Moxley murder case (Martha was bludgeoned to death with a golf club) from Mildred Ix to "Constance Foster."

The Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade got its nickname, the Herd, from Rawhide with cattle drovers pushing a herd to the loud, lively, whip-cracking Rawhide soundtrack. When the unit was formed on Okinawa in 1963, the brigade commander woke up the troops with "Rawhide" blaring over the loudspeaker. The official name for the 173rd was Sky Soldiers. It was separate combat strike force symbolized by a red bayonet below a white wing on a blue background,. Everyone familiar with the unite called it the Herd.
