Impossible to Judge but Entertaining to Watch
25 May 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Firelight (1964)

This film from director Steven Spielberg was filmed for $500 and according to the director it made a dollar profit when it was shown at a local theater. Sadly the film is now missing two-reels so it's impossible to fully judge the movie. What's available is a couple minutes worth of footage, which has been shown at a few festivals and can be found online. Obviously with so much footage missing it's impossible to judge the movie but it's certainly entertaining to watch. Of the remaining footage we basically get to see a few lights in the sky as well as a couple of the characters. Again, one really shouldn't watch this and judge anything in it but it's certainly fascinating to watch considering what Spielberg would eventually turn into.
