Welcome to Adventures in B-Movie Land, the monthly column where I take a look at some of the strangest, cheapest and worst films ever made...and explore why you have to see them. Look for new entries on the second Tuesday of every month.

The Motion Picture:

'Starcrash' (1978), directed by Luigi Cozzi.

Also Known As...

'The Adventures of Stella Star' and 'Star Battle Encounters.'

Featuring the Talented...

Caroline Munro, David Hasselhoff, Christopher Plummer and Marjoe Gortner.

What Is It?

A not too subtle, not too well-made, not too intelligent but compulsively watchable and totally endearing Italian 'Star Wars' knock-off featuring a scantily clad heroine, a rightfully ashamed Christopher Plummer, the film debut of one Mr. David Hasselhoff and the greatest robot sidekick of all time.
