Christopher Lee, Anthony Shaffer, Robin Hardy, Ingrid Pitt, Edward Woodward and Roger Corman are just a few of the names who are interviewed here as we learn about the troubled history of THE WICKER MAN.
David Gregory once again created a highly entertaining featurette that features some wonderful interviews as well as some terrific bits of information on the production of the film. The documentary starts off talking about how the project went into production and then from here we cover the troubled post-production, which included a poor distribution and even worse was the fact that the film was cut down to a shorter version. We then get into discussions about the re-birth of the film and the discovery of the original version.
If you're a fan of the film then you'll certainly enjoy this documentary that clocks in at thirty five minutes and features a lot of great interviews. It's especially great getting to hear from Lee and Hardy as they really do a great job at showing their frustration in regards to how the film was handled on its original release and their joy that the film eventually found an audience. There's no question that the highlight deals with how the film was handled and how the negative is still lost to this day.
