From 1953 to 1969, Don Glut (best known today for writing the best-selling novelization of the movie The Empire Strikes Back) made amateur movies, most of them in the horror and science fiction genres. Shot on 16mm, these films, thanks to coverage in such magazines as Famous Monsters of Filmland, became "legendary" throughout the world. I Was a Teenage Movie Maker is a feature-length DVD about the making of those films, including interviews with Forrest J Ackerman, Randal Kleiser, Bob Burns, Jim Harmon, Scott Shaw!, Paul Davids, Bill Warren and others. Also, as a "gigantic extra" (and for the first time ever), all 41 of Gluts movies  plus hours of bonus film footage  can be enjoyed on this Special 2-Disc Collector's Edition DVD.

GreenCine Says: "More or less a video autobiography of one man's passion for making (and remaking) the genre films of his youth," says DVD Talk of I Was a Teenage Movie Maker, "a sometimes crude but mostly beguiling and sometimes quite charming documentary not necessarily limited to like-minded amateur filmmakers and monster movie fans." Besides the 40 minute documentary, these two discs include all 41 of Don Glut's amateur movies.
