The Fly at Fifty By Diane Kachmar and David Goudsward Foreword by David Hedison

The 1958 movie The Fly was a surprise hit for Fox Studios. Shot in 18 days at a cost of $450,00 dollars, it brought in $6 million, which at time when Fox was in desperate need of a hit. This film made a star of David Hedison and cemented Vincent Price's place among the horror film immortals. It is more than a tale of science gone wrong and hideous mutants. It is a film classic, the rare perfect blending of story, cast and crew, with the fantastic elements in sync with the universality of Andre's struggle with what he had hoped to do with this technology and what actually happened to him. That struggle touches everyone who has ever watched this film and why, after 50 years, it remains a classic.

Complete with reminiscences from the film's stars, David Hedison and Charles Herbert, this book covers the history and legacy of this seminal film.
