Book Description FAB Press, Godalming, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. The covers are a little edgeworn. The Untold Story of Britainís Greatest Exploitation Film Producer! Tony Tenser has an unrivalled position as the godfather of low budget British films. Amongst his many movies are the notorious Ďnudieí Naked as Nature Intended, Roman Polanskiís ground breaking Repulsion and Michael Reevesís classic Witchfinder General. He made movies in every genre from children's films to cannibalism, working with actors ranging from Christopher Lee and Vincent Price to Spike Milligan and Norman Wisdom. Tenserís early career highlights include using strippers to picket cinemas and converting a Soho basement into Britainís most successful private cinema club. By the time he started producing films such as The Pleasure Girls and The Black Torment, Tenserís name was a byword for colourful titles, controversial themes and outrageous publicity stunts. He would enjoy mainstream success with the likes of Cul de Sac and Hannie Caulder but his company, Tigon, will be always synonymous with horror epics like The Sorcerers and Blood on Satanís Claw. By drawing on exclusive interviews, original production files and private correspondence, John Hamilton pieces together the stories behind the movies that made him the most admired and successful exploitation producer in British cinema. From battles with the censor to studio in-fighting, from tantrums on set to post-production interfe-rence, the cut and thrust of filmmaking on a budget is revived in glorious detail. - Detailed analysis of all of Tenserís films complete with the inside story behind the making of the movies, full production details, contemporary reviews and box-office statistics. More than 500 rare and exclusive photographs, many from Tenserís private collection and never seen in print before. A foreword and extensive interview with Tony Tenser, as well as contributions from many of the film-makers and stars of his movies. An exhaustively researched filmography covering all of the films produced or distributed by Tenser as well as a wealth of detail on unfilmed projects. Heavy book that will require extra postage to any destination. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 157508
