Description by

Today's science fiction movies are blessed with obscene budgets and have an army of technicians slaving over the special effects. Back in the 1950s, there were one or two guys doing the effects and the budget for the whole movie was $65,000 or less. The movies were made in ten days or less, in black and white, by people working outside of the studio system.

This book takes a light-hearted (and light-headed) look at those movies, as seen through the eyes of the children who saw them and the actors, directors, producers and writers who made them and some of the political and social events that influenced them. It will take you back to the time when there were two-tone cars, gas stations on every corner and doctors who made house calls. And should it tickle a painful memory of an ill-spent afternoon watching the Daughter of Dr. Jekyll or Fire Maidens from Outer Space take solace in the knowledge that Randy Robertson and I saw every one of these silly movies, usually more than once.
