More Italian Star Wars
As you might imagine, Starcrash was far from the only Italian movie to cash in on the “Star Wars” craze. Several filmmakers got in on the action, but Alfonso Brescia might be the most prolific single director of them, with a total of five Lucas-inspired sci-fi flicks to his name, including the pornographic “The Beast in Space.”
Below, in its entirety, is the much more SFW “Star Odyssey,” which we’ve previously featured here in very different form.
Incidentally, Brescia also directed the third Ator movie, “Iron Warrior,” featuring trial a sequence lifted directly from the opening of Richard Donner’s “Superman.”
