Val Lewton
Val Lewton The Man in the Shadows DVD - 2008

"The Man In the Shadows" is a fairly interesting bio-documentary that covers the life and career of low-budget, B-movie producer, Val Lewton, who worked almost exclusively for RKO Studios (poverty row) from the years 1942-1951.

Originally from Russia - Lewton was clearly one of those very resourceful men who knew just how to produce good quality horror pictures on budgets of only $150,000, or less.

Through stills, film clips, and interviews - The viewer learns all about the ins & outs of being a successful, but unappreciated, film producer like Lewton..... (*Watch "Bio" video-clip*)

*Note* - In 1951 (at the age of 46) Val Lewton died from a heart attack.
