Trivia

This film was shot with a very low budget. They had no money for sound editing but the producer got those services for free. That was because some new equipment had just been installed and the lab needed a project to test the new setup, so they used this project. See more »

Is this story the making of "Killer's Kiss"?
7 April 2003 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I first viewed this movie over 15-years ago. I remember hearing then; that the story, about the making of a low budget movie, was based on Stanley Kubrick's effort to make the movie "Killer's Kiss" (1955). That movie starred Irene Kane and Jamie Smith; and was produced by both Stanley Kubrick and Morris Bousel. Watch both motion pictures and see what you think.
