Hard not to imagine the genesis of James Cameron’s ‘ Terminator ’ in his determined walk and steely, cold-eyed gaze. In 1932 the audience was expecting Bela Lugosi as the Monster, but he’d been dropped by the studio (and Lugosi himself had disapproved of the way the script turned Mary Shelley’s philosophising creation into a non-speaking part). Outlook: The trailer looked kind of creepy. Based on the novel by Shannon Hale, the film was written and directed by Jerusha Hess (writer, Napoleon Dynamite) and produced by Stephenie Meyer's Fickle Fish Films.

A number of the top Poverty Row firms consolidated: Sono Art joined another company to create Monogram Pictures early in the decade.

Kudos to English theatre director James Whale for highlighting this startling contradiction in a film with an incalculable influence on subsequent genre cinema. The rumored films right now would feature Boba Fett and Han Solo in the main roles, and given those two characters’ backstories, the narratives could conceivably rely less on the “heroes vs. villains” structure and instead provide an intriguing portrayal of the universe’s underbelly (like a Martin Scorsese crime film) – while using the sci-fi elements as a backdrop.

Baazigar, a crime thriller directed by duo Abbas-Mustan, is an adoption of Hollywood’s A Kiss Before Dying (1956). Furthermore, the goal of this genre is to have a strong and emotional contact with the audience, in which they will be able to learn and keep the emotions or connections that they have felt. This argument intersects with the current focus on historical trauma in film studies (in the work of Tom Gunning, Miriam Hansen, Anton Kaes, Kaja Silverman).
