I wish Mark Hartley would get around to doing one of his excellent documentaries about Crown International, an interesting company with a storied history of very fun exploitation pictures in the halcyon days of the 70s and 80s. While Crown, unlike AIP or Avco Embassy, doesn't have a catalog containing a few masterpieces, their films almost always had really enjoyable and entertaining elements: like the stupid theme song to Van Nuys Boulevard with the repetitive, but catchy, chorus of "Van Nuys...Van Nuys" or my favorite, Malibu High, where a teenage girl is a high school student sleeping her way to good grades by day and a mob hit woman by night. ROFL They just don't make 'em like that any more. Red Jacobs and his family really knew how to sell films to drive-ins. I miss those crazy ballyhoo showmen of scuzzy product of that era like Joseph Brenner, Terry Levine, Jerry Intrator, and who could forget Edward L. Montoro of Film Ventures International. The story goes that, embroiled in a bitter divorce, one day Montoro took $1 million out of the FVI bank account, told his employees to carry on, skipped to Mexico, and was never heard from again. If the films weren't good, at least the behind-the-scenes stories of their making and distribution were great!

Not a documentary, but there is a book on Shapiro Glickenhaus Entertainment.. and from what i've heard, it's pretty wild !

The book is called The Untold In-Depth Outrageously True Story Of Shapiro Glickenhaus Entertainment.

Looks hefty (close to 500 pages) and very informative.. I think i should order a copy myself ! [Big Grin]

Such a cheesy 80's movie but I liked it. I'll be picking it up for sure.
