Trivia

Restoration efforts began in 2011. They stalled for several years when a man named Rupert Talbot Munch Sr. tried to help the Warren family put Manos under copyright. The Warren family severed ties with Munch, and eventually dropped the copyright pursuit. The restoration was finally shown in 2015. See more »

Goofs

When the wives are sitting in a circle arguing with each other, you can hear the chatter is actually only a few short lines being played over each other repeatedly. Furthermore, the eldest wife is in clear view of the camera, and at the times when what is obviously her line is repeated ("As the eldest of the wives I demand..."), her mouth is either saying something different or isn't moving at all.

Quotes

[first lines]
Margaret: We're almost there, honey. Just a little while longer and your vacation starts.
Debbie: I'm getting cold, mother, and hungry!

Alternate Versions

25 seconds from the complete released version are missing from the opening of the MST3K version, and 48 from the most common public domain print. These consist of a landscape shot panning right, and then a shot of the city of El Paso, followed by the shot of the car parking seen in the MST3K copy. All of this has been restored in the Benjamin Solovey reconstructed print. See more »

AAAAHHHH!!!!!!
29 March 1999 | by Mike Sh.See all my reviews

After seeing this movie I ran through the house screaming at the top of my lungs for several hours pausing occasionally only to bang my head repeatedly on the floor. And that was the MST3K version!! Imagine seeing this movie pure and undiluted! It's too horrible to conceive!

Seriously, this movie is not only the worst movie I've ever seen; it's the worst movie I can imagine being made! How could any be worse! Could Ed Wood make such a movie? Arch Hall Sr.? Ray Dennis Steckler? Phil Tucker? I don't think so. None can approach Hal P. Warren, sometime fertilizer salesman and would-be auteur, for producing total cinematic crap!

Now excuse me, I must go wash up. Just thinking of this movie makes me feel filthy all over...
