A Documentary written and directed by Edoardo Margheriti, who wants to remember the life and career of his father, ANTONIO MARGHERITI who was also father of the Italian Science Fiction movies in the '60 and one of the most famous "Italian Kings of B's", as Quentin Tarantino used to define directors from the "golden years" of Italian Cinema.
Antonio Margheriti, Aka Anthony M. Dawson, was well known abroad and his movies have been distributed all over the world, earning him a greater fame in many foreign countries. He was one of the few italian directors largely known and appreciated in the USA, where he directed several movies produced by major studios such as MGM, Lou Grade Production, and 20th Century Fox.
