This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
During four decades Greydon Clark has worked in front of and behind the camera to bring some of the most memorable exploitation movies to life. “On the Cheap” is an in-depth, first person account of a lifetime spent in this fascinating Hollywood sub-culture.
From the sexy pep squad of “Satan's Cheerleaders” to the dirty dancing of “Lambada, The Forbidden Dance,” to “Joysticks,” “Without Warning,” “Black Shampoo” and dozens of others, Greydon breaks down each of his films into easily understood categories: screenplay, financing, pre-production, production, post-production and distribution, allowing the reader a true behind the scenes look at the ins and outs of the low budget world.
His movies boast Oscar winners - Martin Landau, George Kennedy, Jack Palance - and stars in the making just beginning their careers - Andrew Dice Clay, David Caruso, Julia Duffy, Laura Harring and many others.
