Edgar G. Ulmer delivered classics like The Black Cat, starring Bela Lugosi, and was nicknamed The King of the Bs and The King of Poverty Row. Ulmers stealing away the wife of a producer led to his exile from Hollywood, and working outside the studio system and with low budgets, he turned out film noir, science fiction, and ethnic films that achieved cult status and limited critical acceptance. Among the contributors are Ulmer historians Bill Krohn, Greg Mank, and Sharon Pucker Rivo. Illustrations and a filmography are included.
