    I had the movie poster on my wall back in the 70’s… and it was played as a “Midnight Movie” forever into the 80’s. Every time I watch it, I see something new and COOL!
    Ralph had to do this to get the rights to make “Lord of the Rings” movies… Sadly, “The Hobbit” kinda sucked.
    Ralph and Frank Frazetta were great friends.
    Too bad that the animation of those days was so hard to produce.
    And there was a VERY small audience in those days for this kind of film.
    Love my PAX!!!
