Found by a kid in a garbage ditch outside of Tennessee Williams' home in New Orleans in 1959, the manuscript for Haunted Alligators was quickly sold to Manka Bros. and made into a feature film one week later. The quick film shoot was aided by use of new television videotape technology but hindered by the great Swamp Storm of '59. Legal issues from the Tennessee Williams estate has kept the film from being shown anywhere until this month on Manka Classic Movies. From 1960 - Tennesee Williams' Haunted Alligators.
I suppose if I had to pick one movie from the Manka Bros. library I would choose "The Gastronaut" (1981) starring Joey Levitch. I wasn't born when it came out but my mom used to watch it on cable. It's not really very funny (I was told it was his comeback movie). In fact, it's pretty pathetic. But the story is a universal tale of one man's ability to overcome obstacles. He's an astronaut that has a really bad farting problem but he still manages to go into space (for whatever reason). Because of his gas, he actually ends up helping save the mission (though I'm not sure how).
