Summary "This collection pays homage to a filmmaker reputed for delivering the most movie for the least amount of money. Ulmer's stealing away the wife of a producer led to his exile from Hollywood, and working outside the studio system, he turned out film noir, science fiction, and ethnic films that achieved cult status and limited critical acceptance"--Provided by publisher
