Do anymore of these have reoccurring characters or gags?

I don’t think they made any sequels for their movies in the traditional sense, but just noticed some reoccurring things. I watched The Van tonight and was pleasantly surprised to see Dugan played by the same actor who played him in Malibu Beach pop up. There are no other shared characters that I could place, but Dugan is clearly the same exact character in both movies. Perhaps he’s a little more of a dork in Malibu Beach, but that’s about it. Sadly it looks like those are the only two movies Dugan is in. Also, The Van is described at one point as, “A whorehouse on wheels” which I believe is also said about the limo in My Chauffeur.

I plan on watching some more of these soon so wouldn’t be surprised if I notice some more  Smile

I think they mostly bought independent features; if there are recurring elements it's only because they wanted something like the last successful film, not because they made a conscious effort to create a continuity between films.

Here's their web site: http://www.crownintlpictures.com/

Says here they began producing films themselves in the 70's: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/mark-tenser-dead-was-president-ceo-1970s-indie-powerhouse-crown-international-pictures-1071665

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
