Land of a Thousand Balconies: Discoveries and Confessions of a B-movie Archaeologist
Headpress, 2003 - 189 pages
Most books about B-movies are straightforward genre guides, biographies or encyclopaedias. Not this one. In addition to the meticulously researched chapters on film showmen, gimmicks, cult films, camp and trash, this book documents Stevenson's first-hand exploration of a different realm of low-budget cinema - the underground. With film-related incidents and episodes, character studies and reports of unusual one-off film happenings, as well as taking the reader on a tour of old movie theatres and renegade exhibition spaces, this book captures the whole experience.
