A brief history of the company, which produced movies from the 1950s until the 1980s, is provided. Films are catalogued alphabetically and by decade, and representative films are analyzed in depth. AIP television and unfilmed projects are also covered, and numerous photographs complement the text.


handy and helpful, with more than statistical information for each title. This reference is most highly recommended to scholar and film buff alike. It is an essential addition to any comprehensive library of film study and reference materials. One of the very best books of its kind --Rogue Cinema.
