Sheriff Brackett only ten years older than his daughter


Charles Cyphers (Brackett) was born in 1939.
Nancy Kyes (Annie) was born in 1949.
He was 38 during filming and she was 28.

Didn't really notice it, would have guessed more like a 20 year difference.

He did look old for 38. He looked more in the 45-50 range.
And Annie was 28 playing a high school girl.

Some folks get an early start.

There's something off about the whole town. A sheriff sires a family at age 10 and a kid at age 6 becomes a catatonic, knife-wielding maniac after seeing his sister topless.

Well, technically she is playing an 18 year old student, so I suppose in the Halloween movie universe he's supposed to be 20 years older than her. She wasn't playing a 28 year old in the movie.

But still it's funny.
