Synopsis

Recounts the period in which American directors, stars, and technicians ventured beyond America's shores to first make films abroad. But out of sight, they were quickly forgotten, or worse, ignored back home, though as a group they produced more than 200 films in 30 years.This is the story of those films-illustrated with 60 rarely seen stills-and the filmmakers who created them.
