Equally Unsuccessful

The majority of the cast and crew never appeared in another movie after Manos. Harold P. Warren attempted to pitch another script he had written called Wild Desert Bikers, but with the failure of Manos, no one he approached showed any interest in producing it.[4] John Reynolds (Torgo) committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun on October 16, 1966,[18] although the incident reportedly has no relation with Manos .[2] He had a depressing social life as well as being a drug addict and had almost no connection with his father. Attempts to turn the screenplay into a novel were equally unsuccessful.[16]
