This work features twenty-eight terrific interviews with some of the sharpest and most talkative stars and movie makers of the classic (and c-r-a-z-y!) SF and horror films of the past: Richard Matheson, Janet Leigh, Acquanetta, Hazel Court, Kim Hunter and others. They reminisce at length and with great good humor about their days on the sets of ""Psycho"", ""Planet of the Apes"", ""Superman""; the Poe, Hammer and Lewton films, and exploitation greats like ""Attack of the 50 Foot Woman"".
