Carl weathers also starred in a Made-For-TV movie called The Bermuda Depths. It starred Carl Weathers, Connie Sellica and Leigh McCloskey. This was originally shown in 1978 and has been played, I think, once more in 1998 or around that time. You should definitely try to get a copy of this hard to find movie =) Made by the same people who made the children shows Frosty The Snowman and Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer...this is a Horror Flick tho. One of the not-quite main characters is a giant turtle.
Carl: My first love was acting.I went to Sidney Poitier films as a kid.I sat in the theater and dreamed about being an actor.
