1. Robert J. Horner

Producer | The Kid from Arizona

Robert J. Horner was a prolific, if spectacularly untalented, producer/director in the late 1920s and early 1930s. He had only one eye and no legs (accounts differ as to whether he was born that way or lost them in a traffic accident in his youth), but that didn't stop him from producing quite a ...

Producteur et réalisateur d'une quarantaine de westerns de série Z entre 1921 et 1935.

2. Victor Adamson

Producer | Boss Cowboy

Someday a clever producer will tell the story of Hollywood's "Poverty Row" of the 1920s-'40s (although Hearts of the West (1975) was a valiant effort, it left a lot to be desired), which was centered on Gower Street. So many fly-by-night production companies--which cranked out mostly westerns, ...

4. Dwain Esper

Producer | The Seventh Commandment

Dwain Esper was probably the most obscure of the 'Hollywood hack' filmmakers of the 1930s alongside Victor Adamson, Robert J. Horner and others whom directed low-budget Westerns feature films and serials. Esper's film career was focused on softcore exploitation features which have a hard, merciless...

Réalisateur pendant les années '30 de pseudo-documentaires d'exploitation sur des sujets sulfureux ("Narcotic" en 1933, "Sex Maniac" en 1934, "Marihuana" en 1936, "Sex Madness" en 1938.)
