Their fascinating lives are chronicled as they struggled to survive in the cutthroat movie business. Witness the remarkable rise of skid-row filmmakers Robert Lippert and Roger Corman, who became rich and powerful despite an obvious lack of moviemaking prowess. Meet the financially strapped Ray Dennis Steckler (director/star of the infamous The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies), who lived in his car while making his gruesome films. Discover Coleman Francis, a bit actor in Hollywood who brought his dark visions to the screen. His pathetic films flopped- Francis ended up homeless, penniless and anonymous. Learn the unbelievable but true story of Phil Tucker, who attempted suicide after his debut film was lambasted. Every generationafrom silent film quacks to modern movie hacksaare included. Familiar names include bad movie superstar Edward Wood Jr., supermodel Kathy Ireland and Disney whiz-kid Tommy Kirk. Lesser known filmmakers like Arch Hall Jr., Joe Estevez and Ted Mickels appear, thanks to their mortifying hopelessness.
