The Collective Works Of Don Glut


If you’re a fan of the Bimbo Babe B-Movies of the past decade or so you may of seen Don Glut’s work in films titled The Mummy’s Kiss, Countess Dracula, and Blood Scarab. If you’re a product of the 1980’s you may of seen Don Glut in action writing for popular cartoons like Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, G.I. Joe, Transformers and the list goes on. Don is also an accomplished author with his most famous work (in my opinion) being the adaption of The Empire Strikes back in novel form. Now if you’re a deep seeded appreciator of all that is fan film like my sickness suggests you can follow Don Glut even farther back to the 1950’s and 60’s where he made dozens of them.

For the younger people of today these films could easily be dismissed as silly. You really need to understand the context of these films before that opinion is formed. We’re talking productions over fifty years old put together on a shoe string budget just like the fan films of today with zero help from any kind of video equipment or computer. There was no text book on how to go about carrying out a special effects shot. Every film was made with the a film camera, ingenuity, and a few friends.
