As an in-joke, a character in the 1986 horror film "The Tomb" was named David Manners.

"Always well-dressed, well-spoken, and with impeccable manners, David was a perfect leading man for aspiring young actresses and older female stars who wanted nobody stealing scenes from them with mannerisms or too much sex appeal. . . He was what girls in those days called 'a good catch,' playing an earnest, sincere young man with the kind of good looks that needn't worry parents unduly."--Richard Lamparski in "Whatever Became Of...?" vol. 1 (1967)
