Film and television
Caudell had roles several minor films for the teenage market in the 1970s, including the lead role in the musical film Hanging on a Star, in which "a big rubbery Lane Caudell arises on a swampy stage and sings in a bubblingly oily voice." Caudell had the starring role in The Archer, a fantasy with swords and sorcerers. Caudell's character, Toran of the Hawk Clan, has been framed for the murder of his father, Chief Brakus.
In her 1987 memoir Confessions of a Groupie: I'm with the Band, Pamela Des Barres describes Caudell as having given up show business, "after playing a caveman in a TV movie and a brief stint on Days of Our Lives."
