For fans of SF and horror films, will there ever be a decade to compare with the 1950s? Actors, directors, producers, and crews prevailed over microbudgets and four-day shooting schedules to create enduring films. This book turns a long-overdue spotlight on many who made memorable contributions to that crowded, exhilarating filmmaking scene. John Agar, Beverly Garland, Samuel Z. Arkoff, Gene Corman, and two dozen more reminisce about the most popular genre titles of the era. Lengthy, in-depth interviews feature canny questions, pointed observations, rare photos, and good fun.

Review:

"incisive"--Library Journal; "maybe more fun than the lovably cheap movies that inspired it"--Booklist; "fabulous"--Cornerstone Magazine; "fascinating"--New York Daily News; "I enjoyed every page"--VOYA; "Weaver's well-informed questions elicit articulate and informative reminiscences about the colorful world of low-budget filmmaking"--Neil Barron, Editor of Fantasy and Horror.

About the Author:

Tom Weaver of Sleepy Hollow, New York, has been interviewing moviemakers for 35 years. The New York Times called him a leading scholar in the horror field and USA Today has described him as the king of the monster hunters. Classic Images said he was "the best interviewer we have today." A frequent contributor to film magazines, he has written many books about American popular culture and is also a Blu-ray audio commentator.
