Description by

During the 1960S, a number of low-budget sci-fi films were produced, many that have today reached cult status. These are the inside stories of six of those films, from writer/director IB Mechior.

Product Description:

"It is difficult, if not impossible, to fathom and explain what makes a film a cult film. It is not simply because of excellence in creation or production: many a cult film can be found wanting in those areas. There must be...something else. "In the 1920s, Hollywood experienced a phenomenon concerning a young actress who totally captured the interest and affection of her audiences; whenever she appeared on the screen, she was - IT. She was, of course, talented and appealing, but there was something else, and she had it. The entertainment world dubbed her - 'The IT Girl'; she even starred in a film called It (1927). Her name was Clara Bow; she was born in 1905 and died in 1965. "There is a correlation between Clara's 'IT' and the appeal of a cult film, which does not depend on the enormity of the budget or the names of the stars, but on - something else. It might be a certain innovation, uniqueness or execution - anything. But it cannot be defined, any more than Clara's 'IT.' "No motion picture is ever produced without a host of incidents and mishaps which, voluntarily or involuntarily, become an integral part of the production. In this collection of my own six cult films - the only films I can talk about with first-hand authority - I shall endeavor to give you a no-holds-barred account of the making of those films." Ib Melchior
