This collection of 20 essays pays homage to a filmmaker who had a reputation for delivering the most movie for the least amount of money. Edgar G. Ulmer delivered classics like ""The Black Cat"", starring Bela Lugosi, and was nicknamed 'The King of the Bs' and 'The King of Poverty Row'. Ulmer's stealing away the wife of a producer led to his exile from Hollywood, and working outside the studio system and with low budgets, he turned out film noir, science fiction, and ethnic films that achieved cult status and limited critical acceptance. Among the contributors are Ulmer historians Bill Krohn, Greg Mank, and Sharon Pucker Rivo. Illustrations and a filmography are included in this title.

Bernd Herzogenrath teaches American Literature and Culture at the University of Frankfurt and the University of Cologne in Germany. He is the author of An Art of Desire: Reading Paul Auster and editor of The Films of Tod Browning: Essays on the Macabre and Grotesque (McFarland 2008). Herzogenrath founded the Ulmerfest, an annual conference that takes place in Ulmer's hometown of Olomouc in the Czech Republic.
