Lousy B-movie director from the 1960s, most well known for his three movies The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961), The Skydivers (1963), and Red Zone Cuba (1966). All of the films are known for their terrible quality in both poor acting and the lack of an easily explainable plot. Coleman was also known for having cigarettes, light aircraft, coffee, and shoot-first-ask questions later shootouts from the police in his movies. The three were also all featured on the 1990s cult television show Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Coleman Francis played Griffin in Red Zone Cuba, a man who always wanted money, but settled for looks.
