About this product
- DescriptionThe acclaimed Forgotten Horrors series of movie-genre history and criticism lurches into the turning-point stretch of 1949-1954. This 300-plus-page study of the independent studios' forays into horror, S-F, film ir -- and some unclassifiable oddities -- tackles the most conflicted and paraid period of American cultural history in terms of such breakthrough pictures as these: Mikel Conrad's The Flying Saucer, the oddly matched set of George Pal's Destination Moon and Kurt Neumann's Rocketship X-M, Edgar G. Ulmer's The Man from Planet X, Ivan Tors' Office of Scientific Investigation trilogy, and William Cameron Menzies' Invaders from Mars. To say thing of E.A. Dupont's The Neanderthal Man, William Castle's exploitation-film debut It's a Small World, and -- did somebody say, Skipalong Rosenbloom ?! A brief flowering of science fiction and general-purpose imaginative zeal gives way to the beginnings of what genre historian Phil Hardy has called an all-out horror revival. Forgotten Horrors Vol. 5 teams the series' co-originator with Wes Craven biographer John Wooley and Lydecker Bros. biographer Jan Alan Henderson for a rip-srting round-up of essential titles and long-buried rediscoveries.
- Author BiographyMichael H. Price originated the Forgotten Horrors film-book series in 1979 with George E. Turner (1925-1999), ace movie historian and special-effects/storyboard artisan -- seeking to bring recognition to the indie-studio thrillers of the Depression years. The series has now expanded to five volumes, covering additionally the WWII and postwar years, and now the rise of science fiction as an off-Hollywood commodity during 1949-1954. Joining in are genre historians John Wooley, biographer of horror-filmmaker Wes Craven, and Jan Alan Henderson, biographer of the special-effects pioneers Howard and Theodore Lydecker.
