Below are clips, trailers, doc’s and movie info for our “Dinner With Lynch” episode on the 1962 film from one-time (feature film) director Herk Harvey.

The movie is quite possibly one of the most influential films ever made. Not only is the look and feel of the film a great influence, but the back-story and budget have given hope and influence to multitudes of first-time filmmakers.

There is a nice amount of history on the film, and Director Herk Harvey was not shy when it comes to interviews.

Herk Harvey only made one feature film…. he wanted to make a film that ‘ambitiously looks like a Bergman film and the feel of a Cocteau movie. I think he came pretty darn close.. and with an initial $16,000 budget, he did something quite miraculous.

here are some IMDB and Wiki Links.. below that are the video links.
