Description

Produced on assignment for 20th Century Fox, the original purpose of this film was to serve as a promotional "trailer" for Noel Black's feature film: COVER ME, BABE (RUN SHADOW RUN). Instead, Obern produced a biting documentary insight into the creatively sterile conditions under which major studio feature films are made. Ironically, the feature was shelved by the studio upon completion, while the short went on to win critical acclaim at festivals everywhere. "This is my answer to BRACKEN'S WORLD." - Vaughn Obern [Source: Creative Film Society catalog, 1972]
