I had the good fortune of meeting Lee Horsley in 1984 in Atlanta Georgia. He was here performing and singing in a stage play at the time. I asked Lee about the sequel and he said they were not going to do it. In his words, "It was not a fun picture to do." Maybe all that physical activity was a bit strenuous, even though he certainly had the physique to do it. Let me tell you ladies, he is one fine specimen of the maleness!
