Couple of imports this go around, one Italian the other Russian. The second feature most infamously for Francis Ford Coppola’s re-editing and inserting a monster fight into Nebo zovyot, whose monsters are so hilarious phallic in a TAb-A goes into Slot-B sense that one can only watch and boggle.

After the box-office success of his completely demented Mexican matinee-only import, Santa Claus — where Rene Cardona apparently read a book about Salvador Dali, ate some bad Figgy Pudding, and then downed about  nine pints of Mad Dog before hammering out a script and rolling the camera — kiddie matinee king K. Gordon Murray quickly commissioned three more holiday features and imported several other Cardona-lensed Fairy Tales. Santa Claus and His Helpers was only a one reel short, where Santa has to abandon his orbiting space station to arbitrate a dispute between his bickering elves to make sure all the toys are ready for Christmas.

The second feature, The Queen’s Swordsman, follows the further adventures of Stinky Skunk and the Big Bad Wolf, culled from Cardona’s lavish Little Red Riding Hood series in an attempt at some form of continuity with the first feature.
