Don has appeared in movies and on TV; and during the late 1960s. was a member of the Penny Arkade, a rock band produced by “Monkee” Michael Nesmith.
Before founding Pecosborn Productions, Don Glut via his co-owned company Frontline Entertainment, Inc., wrote and directed six feature-length films and several documentaries.
He named his company Pecosborn because that’s where he was born — in Pecos, a small town in Texas. As a little kid living in Chicago, he bragged to his fellow playmates that he was a “real cowboy” because he came from Texas, calling himself the Pecos Kid.
Don started making films (albeit, amateur ones) at the age of nine. The last of these 41 16 mm horror, sci-fi and fantasy “home movies” — most of them about “classic” and “teenage monsters,” dinosaurs and superheroes — was made in 1969, two years after Don graduated from the University of Southern California’s College of Letters, Arts and Sciences with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cinema.
He loves movies and making them, especially those featuring such classic horror icons as werewolves, living mummies, vampires and Frankenstein’s Monster.
