8x10 publicity photo, 1971. Printed cutline reads:

A job as a gas pump jockey tided Paul Koslo over until Hollywood gave him the nod. In his fifth important assignment in less than a year, he's co-starring with Charlton Heston in Warner Bros.' science-fiction drama, "The Omega Man," story of a biological holocaust in which most of the earth's population is killed.

Heston's character, an army doctor, is tasked with developing a cure. At one point, Koslo's character, a biker and former medical student, saves Heston's character from from being burned at the stake in Dodger Stadium by a band of hooded, nocturnal albino mutants. During filming, Koslo accidentally hit Heston in the head with a gun, drawing blood.
