Science Fiction Confidential

Interviews With 23 Monster Stars and Filmmakers

By Weaver, Tom

Publishers Summary:
David Hedison, who plays a tiny human-headed insect menaced by a spider in the SF classic "The Fly" (1958), says the moviemakers spoiled the scene by giving him a squeaky voice. 'Imagine if, as the camera moved in closer, you actually heard me screeeeaming for my life,' the actor rhapsodizes. 'THAT is horror.' In Tom Weaver's eighth interview book, Hedison - and 22 other moviemakers - discuss their horror and science fiction movie experiences as part of such films and TV series as "The Blob", "It Came from Outer Space", "Star Trek", "The Wild Wild West", "Somewhere in Time", and "Forbidden Planet". Among those interviewed are Dan O'Herlihy, Kate Phillips, John Alvin, Anthony Cardoza, Tod Griffin, Alex and Richard Gordon, Suzanne Kaaren, and Warren Stevens. In this work, full credits are provided for the actors, actresses, and producers.
