    The mouth whack is reminiscent of actor Fritz Feld, who usually played waiters. He was on a couple of episodes of “Lost in Space.” He would often bark out orders followed by a loud popping as he would slam his outstretched hand to his lips.

    I remember Eric Laneuville most from “The Omega Man.” He meets a gruesome end at the hands of the plague victims.

    Wow. Nice call on the mouth whack reference.
