Basman-Suttles, Hastings '73, saw 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6. Was this
a pre-arranged gag on the part of two of the least orthodox
players ever?

No gag, I think. If you look through the Hastings 1973-4 games, you'll see that Basman played this line three or four times. I think Suttles saw what he played, figured it was junk, and let him play it.
