Yor was directed by Antonio Margheriti, who, for his various films financed in the US, would adopt the pseudonym Anthony M. Dawson. Apparently the closest translation of Margheriti was daisies and he was advised that no one wanted to watch a movie that was directed by Tony Daisies, unless that movie involved penises in other men’s butts. That last part was me filling in the blanks. Margheriti was already a stalwart veteran of budget films. In 1965 executives at MGM saw Assignment Outer Space and Battle of the Worlds, two of the first Italian space movies, and immediately gave him a four film deal. He would complete those four films in three months. They are known as The Gamma One Series, though not directly related. The first film in the series, Wild Wild Planet is one of my future picks. He would behave similarly in this instance, Columbia would finance this film but he made a four part miniseries totaling 286 minutes with the shoe string budget that was originally allotted for a single film. He would go ahead and carve it down and give Columbia what they wanted, but with the longer cut he was able to co-opt it for Italian television.
